In Dec 2013 I built up a old Pipeline. Was excited to get one of these bikes. Luckily the frame was in descent shape and had the OG cranks and forks. I added a few things and shes good to go. The forks do need a rebuild. I also will change the tires to something bigger. Love the ride of this bike. Great pop for bunny hops.

That looks solid.

I bought a 2000 for my dad (overkill for the riding he does I'm sure, but it was too good of a deal to pass up) and rode it around a bit after I tuned it up - I didn't want to give it up.

Thanks man. It is one of the funnest bikes I've ever ridden. I wish I had one when I was in my prime. Would have added a bit more glory to my glory days.

I see you have a 1990 Mammoth, very awesome. Rare as hell.

Got around to changing some parts out. XY post, pedals, and Salsa skewers that match the lock grip rings. This is by far my favorite bike. Of the stable I ride this the most. Just need to swap the handlebar out for a Race Face bar. Eventual fork rebuild. Maybe some replacement decals

The other day I realized that I had never checked the serial number on this frame just assuming it was a 99. Will it says it is a 2002, which weird because thats the year they switched to RAD tubing on Pipelines. Learn something new everyday.

Updated my Pipeline for the coming year. The original Z1 was blown and pretty old. Threw on the Marz DJ from my Lizard which is getting a rigid fork. Added new bar and old Azonic shorty. Rides real nice and looking forward to getting it dirty!

Got bored waiting for other projects and threw some stuff on my old pipeline. This frame is so weary but I love it. Rides great for a old rig. A bunch of extra chromag parts and a old toro are on it for the moment. Not sure I will complete it now or later. Just fun to see the old girl on legs!
