We should re-visit the shoe thread.
I get bored, sorry. :D

I also tend to go through a cycle. Buy a big bike, end up not riding it as often as I should, sell it to build a logical bike, miss the big bike, and repeat.

I wouldn't be selling my current bike, but I offered to "sponsor" a friend to race this year. I am building the RM7 to be his race bike that I will keep at my house to ride when not being raced. I love the SS and I will likely build something to replace it if he takes the RM7 at the end of the season.

<edit> I also build them on the cheap. My race bike this year will total $1100 to build, but here are the specs:

03 GT DHi with iDrive MRP guide
02 Monster T
08 Hayes Stroker Ryde V8 discs
07 Sram X0 shifter
07 Sram X9 rear dérailleur
Truvativ Hussefelt cranks w/ Howitzer bb
WTB Speed Disc hoops on Formula hubs 12mmx150mm rear/20mm front

Everything I have picked up on clearance or as take offs except the frame/fork/cranks. I started with nothing and to have as sweet a ride as this for what I spent is a whole new level in cheap bastard builds. It's awesome.

<edit2> I only have the SS right now, but the DHi will be done this weekend and the RM7 will be finished in a month. I have never owned more the 2 bikes at any one time.

I'm sure everyone is off + or - 1 to 3 years on a bike or two. I wouldn't sign a sworn statement for mine either.

:crazy: What are you talking about?
I got my RM7 this month. The model year is an 03, but I got it in 08. Listed in order that I got them, not by model year.

<edit> I have no idea what model year of most of my bikes are. My R&R was a '77 or something, but I didn't get it until much later.

Ewwww.... I have one of those. I do not like it at all.
I have had poor experience with some of their bikes and Haro the company. In their defense it's because they wanted to become a big company and took away territory from my little shop for a Nestor's and wouldn't give me back territory a small bike shop had near Bikeline. What I didn't understand was my prices were higher too so why would these larger shops feal threatened- but real riders came to me. Big business runs the world, even the bike world in many cases.

my apologies for the drailment:)

I've never had to deal with Haro the company, but my sole experience with Haro the bike is not a good one. It has no tire clearance, the geo is way off, it's heavy, the rear triangle is flexy, the cable routing sucks, on and on.
