I used to run a set of those Maguras on a hardtail...they were awesome (sometime in the 90's!)

I've got two Joe Murphy original Konas hard tails tucked away in my basement. Can't bring myself to use them on trails anymore. I'm strictly road nowadays anyway.

These are my two Dean Dukes, both Titanium wonders. The first one I bought back in í98, It has over 14,500 miles on it. Third wheel set, second power train and second shock fork, Frame still looks excellent, since if you dump it, a bit of Scotchbrite and WD-40 buffs all but the deepest gouges out. And if they are too deep, your probably dead. The other is my second Dean Duke build to spec I have had it now two seasons and it only has around 1,500 miles on it. Instead of paint or decals on the new one, the logos and such are sand blasted into the frame and bars. Flagstaff is kind of bicycle heaven. I try to put in 1,500 to 2,500 mile per year here on the bikes.

I also got a Cyclocross bike last year and it eats into my mountain biking time. It is just such a hoot to ride, kind of a road mountain bike hybrid, it is a Scott Team. Finally, my road bike is a Colnago CX-1 EVO carbon fibre, well actually compressed humming bird scrotums. Blows away in strong winds. You donít lock it up, just attach a string and it floats behind you like a balloon.

I started mtn biking in the early 80's, I had a Suzuki, 20"w/rear suspension Waaay heavy bike, then graduated to a Stumpjumper sport and bought my first full suspension bike in 96 a Schwinn S-20, couldn't tell you how many miles but thousands on it. I still have it and ride it some days. In 05 I bought a Titus it does the heavy work now.
Pic is me and the S-20 in Montana on the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route in 03.

This weekend isn't great for me as I'm feeling a bit under the weather, but next Sunday might work for me.

Hey OP, nice bike! I'm riding one of those, also, just a different paint scheme. I can't get over the Lefty, I don't think I will ever go back.

The agility is unparalled, not to mention the geometry of this Canny climbs like a billy goat. Thinking about picking up a dropper post for a little more freedom on the descends

On the website you can click a link to fly the route in GoogleEarth, also moving the curser over the Elevation graph puts a marker on the route at that elevation.
