my old 26er fully rigid lovefest

loving the fun and nostalgia that comes with riding my old steel mtb. Not the lightest but s joy to ride. Simple responsive fits well sans the seat post which i just ordered as i need more set back. Decals on way also...Gary Fisher.

No booze, no dogs, and you can't go over 5MPH? Man, I don't miss NJ


Cool bike, though

I'm with you thehammerdog . I have been riding my recently put together (but not complete) Cannondale rigid mountain bike through the trails of my local state park as well.
