    Found what's likely the sole surviving biz card from 2000 - my second last year in the bike industry...




    What have you got that's like it?

    Job?

    Biz?

    not crashing your bike, doods - we've all done that and likely will again.

    I miss Stratos, but I guess I am the only one.

    I still have a box of pens from my days as a tow driver, does that count? I have a coffee cup from all the places I've worked as well.

    My very first job was teaching kids how to shoot rifles and shot guns...I'm sure it's only a matter of time before one of the little tikes (now older and angrier) shows up in the news. Fate will probably serve me some justice. Too bad I can't find the picture of me posing with a .50 cal muzzle loader...but I'm sure it'll surface if I'm ever convicted of anything.

    Oh, that would be death on a stick.

    Bullet Brothers...

    Funny thing, they were trying to figure out what to call their new fork while driving to Vegas for the bike show and drove past the sign to Zyzzyx Rd...

    Seriously.

    You can look it up.

    Oh, and for a bonus HaHa - check out this:

    Seriously, no doubt about that.

    I had an FR4 on my Azonic DS1, an MX6 on my Stinky, and an LR1 on my Bullit.

    I still say the LR1 was my favorite all around fork. The lockout allowed me to climb to the top rather than push. And I hate to climb. I had full steering radius too (not to mention the black looked awesome).

    I rode all of the 98-2000 products, but i loved the '97 Superstar 6 - the most over built and over machined fork of all time.

    i'd die for one, now... just as a wall ornament.

    well, maybe not 'die'... but it's in the ball park.

    Interesting that the 'hippie' became a Marine and is now a police officer.

    I had a DBR X-10 with fully extruded "Anodize, Inc." front end and a Helix Pro rear shock with lockout - a perk at that time of being in the industry.

    Likely the best FS 'Black Diamond' whatever all purpose rig I ever had...

    my mom used to call me "chubby jesus" ;) :D

    that was my transition haircut from the grunge era into the metalcore age. i couldn't imaging having it all shaved by some dude in boot came so i had my friend give me a mohawk the day before i left...it stood up about a foot :thumb: the drill instructor was not amused and made me dry shave my facial hair on the bus :twitch:

    i found another one...
    circa 1999, USS Boxer, somewhere in the Gulf. boredom hit hard (see the tape holding the cans...i thought it was rather genius at the time ;) )
