this man is a genius, not only did he come with a way to have a six-pack without working out, but at the same time he came up with a way to have easy access to his beers at the same time. we are looking at the king of awesome right here.:lol:

Now put a second rotor/caliper assy on the other side... No need for back brakes anyway.

Dad bought us each one through a rewards program at work. We do have a local Trek shop though! I should go get some new accessories or something this summer. I haven't been in there in a long time. They were shipped to us and we had to build them. It was pretty fun!

Here it is! I don't know a lot about bikes... but it says 800 on it.... I originally had a silver one, but quickly realized it was too small so we ordered this black one which was slightly larger (21.5" I think?) It came with paddle shifters but I liked my handle-twist shifters better so Dad swapped them onto this frame.

I added the TREK cupholder, a vintage shelf on the back (off one of my Dad's old bikes) and a bunch of reflective stripes (Which I plan on taking off and redoing this summer)

And of course a gel seat cover.

Can any of you suggest a good onboard computer? Just a really simple one. The local shop has Bontrager Trip 1's for 22.50 which is a good price... Anybody have suggestions?

I'm thinking of a blue under seat storage unit to match my frame, something like the Bontrager Pro Pack 50, but apparently you can't order the colored ones. You just have to find the color you want in a store :/

now that I'm getting back into trail riding, I'm finish this bike up by upgrading the forks and rear shock.

also getting some new brakes Shimano BR- M785. sine i kinda melted the old ones.

IMAG0098.jpg

IMAG0100.jpg

IMAG0101.jpg

IMAG0103.jpg

this it happen about 3 to 5 miles in no tools no water nothing.

IMAG0104.jpg

yeah i'm holding the chain in my hand. broke after hitting a rock, it took almost two hours to make it back to the car. climbing a trails that were almost vertical

i will never do that again next I'm making sure i have the right stuff.

Not all bad i found the weak points and with that i can now make it stronger. really need brakes and a chain, but the forks got to go, knock off rock shocks ain't doing s**t.

these should do the job.

So its raining pretty hard down here in Socal, and yesterday my buddy decides is the day for me to change his rear brakes. It's noonish when he comes over, and I had no idea it was going to rain. He has drum brakes (even more fun) on the back, so I get cracking and pull the thing apart. The entire reason I pulled it apart was because some kid at an oil change shop basically made him freak out, saying his rear brakes only had like 4mm left (stupid retard, that's what drum brakes look like). My buddy only tells me this after the thing is completely apart, so I'm like, whatever, I'll just do it anyway cus I have the thing open. At this moment, it starts sprinkling, and I start thinking I gotta get going because its gonna rain. No sooner had I thought that than the most unholy downpour of water from the heavens opens up. So I run inside and grab a tent/awning thing so I can keep working, while all my tools are outside getting soaked. I get back outside, set the tent up, and get back to work. Drum brake springs never want to cooperate dry.gif, but I get it back together and have my buddy test it before I put the drum and wheel back on. Turns out, his slave cylinder in the brake was gone, because I got sprayed with brake fluid when he tested them. dry.gif After this, we get to oreillys and pick up another part, get back, and I get to work again. As I pull off the broken cylinder, the wind and rain strike at the same time in some evil coordinated manner and fling my tent into the next yard while getting me even more soaked. Now I'm thinking, screw it, I'll keep working without the tent. In the rain I get the cylinder back on, bled the brakes, and put everything back together, just as the rain stops. All this took place over the course of 3-4 hours...
