I saw this one in Asheville the other day. It belongs to a local guy who also has a 90 I believe.

Went mountain biking today. Thank you LA for it being 80 in January. This 97 was parked at the top of Sullivan canyon.

Like the Moots sticker on the back - not surprised - Asheville is supposed to have a great mtb scene. Very clean looking truck.

Kinda jealous - although I got a few runs on 9" of fresh up here in VT yesterday. Not epic conditions but still very decent for the northeast. 80 degrees and the ST still on? What are you using to carry your bike to the trails? Noticed that SW had a receiver mount setup which I can't stand but the Thule and Yak tire ones need modification to work and even then aren't the most dialed setup.

Funny enough the green sw had a moots sticker in it too. Saw a guy in the woods on a moots but we were going in opposite directions so I didn't accost him about his truck.

I have a Thule hitch mount rack but I agree they suck. I tossed the bike in back for the day. Top stays on till I know I can take it or the windows out for longer than a few days.

I was actually thinking of getting the tire mount Thule. I thought they would work fine with normal size tires.

That funny about the Moots - although I can see the correlation between them and Defenders. BTW - what mtb rig are you on? By the frame it looks like a Turner which are amazing bikes.

I hear you on the top but I thought you SoCal guys have weather all winter long that is above 50 degrees :D

The Thule tire mount will fit but needs modification - the bolt holes don't line up. A proper D90 tire bike rack are one of those things I think would make a nice product although very limited production.

Thought i'd share this. taken in Iceland at the end of the summer when we went out there. There are no bridges in the interior, and loads of rivers. I totally recommend it as a holiday destination.

My company converted this TD5 90 for my friend, this vehicle is located in Iceland and is for hire along with 2 x TD5 110's that we also converted.

You'll notice there are only 60mm lifts with 35" tyres, which are more than enough for this terrain. (summer only).

Uh - how much (vague approximation) would it be to make a TD5 110 like one of those for import to the US?

The guy also had a independent fabrications sticker on his truck. Would have liked to see that out there. My bike is a turner burner with full xt, king wheels, reba fork, and xtra discs. I built it in 04 I think which by today's standards makes it a dinosaur. Would love a new 29 inch specialized with the new xtr but don't have 9000 laying around.

Also the weather is good here but I would rather be riding in ringwood.

Steve, it depends on so many factors, galv chassis? obviously new lift kit, but to what quality, lhd or RHD? there are many factors. if you email me a list of specs, i'll be happy to quote you. The icelandic vehicles also have Eberspacher D2 diesel heaters.

I swear that is a Minnesota Vikings logo on the 90:

I just put farmtek flooring on it - you might as well take that, too.

Just drove back by that glassed-in private garage a block from my house. Funny, because when I lived in NYC, Jason had a white SW a few blocks from me, and in Hoboken basically the same truck down the block again.

Missed your post. Would keep the Turner over the Specialized 29er although adding a rigid or HT 29er SS would be different enough but still fun.

Ringwood - I haven't been in years but remember it being nice!

Smile Black D110 SW on Music Row

Saw this Black D110 SW TD5 down near Music Row in Nashville yesterday. I guess you can see where it was bought!

Ringwood is awesome. I have a rigid singlespeed but am too weak to get far on anything that isn't rolling.
