Haha, I've always wondered if that's what your screen name stood for. Always thought EWR's were cool bikes.

Saw Jay DeJesus @ a trail jam (I think I posted a vid of it) last Oct. That guy can ride a bike.

I've taken Alastair's McClung on a short spin and have seen the very vintage Fatty Chance on one ride. Both are very very cool bikes and he needs to get some pics up to show you guys how neat they are. Some sweet "past" bikes too like that Spooky and the Bontragers.

Here's some. Most of my pictures are on flickr rather than my hard drive... I'll dig up more later.

Yeah Don, I can't wait for my truck to arrive!

Is it wrong that I don't have a clue what brand any of my bikes are or have been? All I can tell you is there are three of them taking up valuable garage space

Well you guys are making me feel like I have a pretty mild case of both Rover and bike additions, but I'll add to the list anyway.

MTN: 2006 Orbea 29er - Fun bike that is my primary ride around town and on the trails.

ROAD: Trek Madone 4.5 Carbon - I'm not that into road biking, but I occasionally like to enter a triathlon or road race.

I also got a Trek 4500 for my 12 year old daughter to start riding with me.

I got a Different Bike since i last posted, and i bought it as a frame and cannabilized the Rockhopper, and ended up changing almost everything anyway so ill post up the new specs:

2005 Specialized FSR XC Comp 26" (frame, fork, shock, crank: $250)
Mods:
-2011 RockShox Recon Gold 120mm air fork ($275 wholesale)
-2010 Avid Juicy 3 brakes on 160mm rotors ($70 used near mint)
-WTB Seat on Rockhopper post ($35 new)
-Gravity Light Handlebars ($30 used)
-Truvativ stem ($20 Wholesale)
-Panaracer Fire XC tires 2.1" ($50 new)
-Mavic 117 rims ($100 new)
-9 speed Shimano Deore rear, 2 speed front ($100 for various bits)
-VP-001 Pedals ($50 new)
-ODI Grips ($5 used)
-Salsa 44T Bash Guard (from rockhopper)

Original:
-Fox Float rear shock (it blows, needs rebuild)
-Crankset

So the total cost as list there should be just around $1k total, but that doesn't include my tuneups, parts i have added and taken off over the years, and all the Diablo trips i have gone on.

Also anyone in the NYC area, let me know if you want to ride, i need someone to ride with now that it is nice out!
