I don't have any pics.. but it's a Giant NRS carbon, full XTR with a fox up front. I'm considering going up to a 100-120 mm fork and tossing the 80 mm fox though.

2006 Specialized Stumpy. Fox Triad on the back, Fox Talas on the front. Juicy 7s to slow you down. Best XC bike I've ever ridden, but set the cruiser project back a few months to buy it. No pictures on work computer, but this is it:

When you toss the 80 mm fox, let me know! ;)

I want to be there to catch it.
If'n you're serious about wanting it, PM me. I could use the funds to help with the purchase of the new 100-120 mm fox.

Here's my rockhopper. Its an 87. Fixed gear, 48/17 2.1 tires (slick) front brake only. Narrowed handle bars for comfort. Racks front and back now, with a pannier in back on the left for commuting daily to and from work. IRO Fixed/fixed hub in the back on a Velocity CliffHanger rim. Front is just a cheap mavic/deoreLX combo that I hate (The hub is dying after only 2 years....)

Shown with 1.25 tires and platform pedals, it now has 2.1's and shimano SPD mountain pedals on it, and a front rack to match.

Hey, since all the pedalheads are assembled, what's a good, quality bike for children? I've bought my kids Treks and Schwinns, but are they ever heavy! Heavier than my road bike (old steel Fuji), mountain bike (Trek), and the wife's hybrid (Trek). Why are "quality" kid's bikes heavier than adult bikes?

How little??
My son is on a specialized hot rock, bought for him 1.5 years ago 6 speed and he seems to like it, It is almost as heavy as my hard rock sport (05) but hard tail rear and shocked up front. We will move him to a 20" rim next spring.

dude, you aren't lying. I just sold two of my freestyle bikes that I grew up with in the Mid 80's, (a Mongoose FS1 and a Haro FST) and they were each twice as heavy as my Fisher... and my Fisher isn't light by any stretch of the imagination. I'd be suprised if the Haro weighed less than 45lbs.
