Check out the size of her big ring! :shock: :twisted: On her xizang :(

Still need the leg power to produce the speed though. Must've been strong.

It is the RidgeRunner => Many pics

Very nice frame out Miyatas own Hardtlite FM-1 triple butted spiral spline tubset => Image

Pretty light, agile and comfortable frame. I have 2 in euro trim (yellow with panther design). For the 1989 year it came equipped with XT with thumbies, HG (1st year for HG!), 7s.... all the right stuff => 1 of mine

The bike on the wall is H-Balls' 1990 DH worlds winning => More

The size of the bike is 20,5" C-T.

Amazing... I want that Xizang.

All of those bikes are what got me into the sport.. and keep me there now! I was genuinely awestruck by those pics.... I dont feel normal.
