    Here is a few old pics of freeriding in 2000. The pic on the left was taken in Fernie on Big Trouble Small Chainring. The pic on the right was in Missoula Montana. I was riding a 2000 Big Hit. Things sure have changed. The pic on the right was a 6ft long 2x4 on a big stump in the bushes. It was crazy skinny. You could get some decent air though. :cool:

    I ran tioga 2.3 DHs, Junior T and a Stratos in the rear. I was getting about 5 feet off the ground in the pic on the right. It was pretty fun.

    I use to run a THE fender all the time. When I finally decided not to run a fender it was sort or weird.
