Ah, John! Thanks for changing my "subtitle"!


Here to help :D Had actually forgotten I could do that :oops:

Like the bike choices you've made. Nice to see someone chose some slightly more leftfield brands...

On another note. You must be the only person in the world to give a Trek 9000 some TLC. You did a very nice job with it. Wasn't it voted by MBA the worst suspension bike of all time? How does it ride?


Friend of mine was given one to race (briefly) when they first hit our shores. He described the rear end as being similar to rolling around on a slightly underfilled water bed with a lady of the night (not his actual words).

He used to have the frame hanging in the shop, but due to a lack of space its now hanging in his shed at home.

Funny! I heard someone equate it to an ejection seat in an F14.
