    Just because you have money you don't have to spend/waste it, you could just save it you know.

    guys this money is completely spendable, I have savings so Im not to fussed on what I spend it on, the only rule is it has to be cool :). A hd monitor and a blu ray drive looks promising at the moment but it'd be cool to see what others bring to the table :)

    I'm 31, and I ride the hell out of my bikes. If I burst an aorta doing that, then so be it. I love it, and will do it til I can't any more.

    No lady, then I refer you to the fourth thing on my list.

    Looks good! I'm not a jumper/trickster, but that's a good start point. There's no reason to not buy a good bike, there is always a good use for them, secondary transport or exercise, or both. That's how my Giant started, a basic bike, then I replaced whatever broke or was too weak. Now, the frame is the only stock part.

    I also saw this dude on the page, you could get two of 'em... Maybe make a tandem...:nerd:

    I'll post a couple gratuitous pics of my bikes...

    The Giant, '08 Boulder SE. Not a great pic, but I don't feel like takin another one yet.

    Tora fork with U-turn(LOVE it-80mm-160mm), MRP Bash guard(already saved ma a ring gear or two), TruVativ Hussefelt bars, Shimano shifter/lever combo with Shimano derailleurs and Cane Creek brakes(they'll flip your ass over quick as hell), Shimano 22-32-44 crank and 11-34 cassette, Mavic CrossLand wheels and hubs(oooh, they are the shizz), Specialized seat and post, Salsa SS skewers, Specialized stem and Cane Creek S-3 headset...

    [​IMG]



    The Specialized, '09 Rockhopper 29er Expert.

    8" front and 7" rear discs, TruVativ FireX 22-32-44 crank w/hollow spindle, TruVativ Stylo bars and stem and post, ODI lock-on Rogue grips(after lock ons, nothing else will do!!!), Profile bar ends, everything else is stock; Tora 29er fork with air spring and damping adj./lockout, Tektro Auriga Comp hydraulic brakes, etc. This is my main bike, though both are my babies.

    [​IMG]


    I can't leave anything in stock form. I hated the way Specialized painted the 29er in '09, it was too gay, so I fixed it temporarily. It's getting painted this winter during annual teardown, prolly flat black like the Giant. I like the "murdered out" look....
