    been wanting a MotoLite for a while now. finally got one less than a month after the shop i work for dropped Titus. damn. c'est la vie. such a fun bike. glad i have one of my own now.



    nothing crazy...X9, XT, Thomson, King...Shadow Conspiracy grips...

    new 2008 XT XC wheels...nice. good value it seems at $550-ish. riding them until my I9s come.

    Nice bike. Too bad about the girly golf clubs in the back. Didn't you have a HH before? I think I would move to a motolite if I ever got rid of my bike, the extra inch of travel would be nice.

    2006, maybe? prior to the paint fiasco, if i recall.
    i did. sold it when i got the Willits. Missed it. Wanted another and couldn't find one. Then this little guy came along on Mojo (the frame).

    The frame was on mojo and I missed it. Dammit! I don't need a new bike, but a frame is another story....

    Stable -

    Trail King



    System 6



    Moto Lite



    I have a Trek 1500 from Texas 4000 that I keep for sentimental reasons, and another Willits (Monster X) that has been stripped recently. The Motolite will likely be sold once my Pivot comes in...assuming I enjoy it more than the Motolite. The Motolite is the best bike I've ever ridden (other than my Trail King).

    I desperately need some red hoods to come in stock. I have some Hudz ordered as a contingency plan though.

    They all look nice, Dustin.
