For the small cost, if I can become a faster rider then it's worth it. Nothing feels better than ripping down a-line right on your tail.

Yes, we have one extra spot.

I called EB today and booked July 12. They'll have an invoice to me by the end of this week they say. I'll forward it to everyone and you can all settle your portion of the bill with EB.



I overheard someone once say that MTB fashion changes all the time. One year it's xc racing, then it's freeriding, then trials, dirtjumping, DH racing, street trials, or dirt jumping again... But the thing that's never gone out of style is going fast. Being able to drop your riding buddies will always be cool.

It may be a little late as they're getting low, but Giant has last years Glory's reduced quite a bit. I picked up an Glory 01 for just over $3k and the 00 was $4400 out the door.... For someone looking to replace their old rig it's a killer dealer!

I wish you good luck sir, those prices are a bit high though. New Race Face cranksets with BB are in the $300 range, as are Saint and Truvativ stuff.

Those prices are super high... Like 4-5 times what I could see it selling for. Remember, discontinued often means obsolete, and rare only applies to collector's items...

Sorry, but the truth sucks sometimes...

Thnx for your input ..cranks sold already pending on bb


Btw these were the old skool forged set up they produced back in 2001ish in brand new condition so me think collectors items apply.

Bump for wicked Chris king hub

Just finish putting my snowboard to bed for the summer so now it's time to get the bike ready

Saw lots of bikers on my way down from Cypress today so I guess the season has already started!

you should check meaning of 'brand new'... I do not think it means what you think it means.

Nice bike! Probably a nice scratch where you leaned the metal bar up against your truck too!

There are a lot of really beginner friendly trails and a few bigger stunts as well. The main gravel trails are easy to follow but actual biking trails aren't that clearly marked though.

-Carrying speed better
-Skinnies
-Drops and jumps

Haha no problem Tim, I don't need those parts.

Thanks for the comments on the bike guys

No scratch Kevin, I was careful!

You're right though, I need to get riding! The baby has been a spare time killer for sure.
