My name is Grim, and here are some bikes:

This first bike kind of speaks for itself..!
It is built around a cruiser frame I had, and with a reversed stem and the handlebars upside down it handles, well, a bit spooky...
Notice the '90s toeclips and Panaracer Spike tires!

The other one is a CroMo Ritchey frame with a dubious-spec-trial-setup.
All you really need are cantilevers, some flat pedals and a RockRing!

The last one is my oldskool Klein Mantra Race, kitted out with matching coluor DX-pedals, riserbars and the shortest stem I could find.
Believe it or not, but I used this as a freeride rig in the good old days.
The only(!?) drawback is that the suspension only works when you're sitting down.....
I'm wondering maybe some red Michelin tires would be a nice upgrade? ;)

On snow it feels like you're the Worlds Slowest Indian, with only a worn out rear brake and your chin dabbing on and off your knees, it's pretty special.

How can I post more pictures? It seems I only have "room" for four..? :P
