I picked it up for $150 on Craigslist (Thank you Craigslist)... very, very new. The woman who I bought it from rode it twice and put it away. I have new shifters for it ( im not a fan of SRAM) and will be installing Disk brakes and an upgraded fork soon. I want something that locks out for street riding. It's relatively light weight and fun to ride. I have been riding a medium GT Aggressor and I love it, but this is more my size.... a size 15. Im a midget on Specialized bikes I guess. My Jamis was a 19 and just a tad too big for me. Stock pic below.. Upgrade suggestions requested. :)

U can leave a rear Der on the single speed with spacers and jump to the smooth part( down or up a gear) and it allows u to ride fakie without having to back pedal... if u wanna build urself a nice streetride hardtail single speed

I do a lot of trail riding and some down hill stuff. I am going up to Mammoth on Sept 11 and 12th. Its for recreation; I really just enjoy throwing on my headphones on under my helmet and going for a ride.

Specialized does make some 29" versions of bikes in their lines BUT they are designed and built completely different to handle the differences in geometry and size between a 26 and a 29" wheel/fork. They only share the name

Yeah 150 is a smoking deal considering I spent 200 on my frame and wheels alone for my single speed!!!!

and your fork cost a pretty penny a psylo i will guess

Actually this came on my Specialized Enduro and I have another Psylo from another bike....

I got a smoking deal on the Enduro so the fork was cheap.. I ended up upgrading to a Fox Talas RLC

my dad has a distributor buisness so i use his tax id and have a buisness card that says im a buyer and thats all i need its the same ppl that do asr down in sd

Neccros

My friend is trying to get press passes..... so what proof do you need to present to them??

9otpwnd
08-27-2009, 04:57 PM
i dont know about press for distributors you need a blank invoice with your company name and address also copy of tax id then fax it so they have badges made and of course when you get there your id and a card but you can bring a guest

9otpwnd
08-27-2009, 04:58 PM
i think you can pay like 200 dollars and get in also but you get more free stuff if your a buyer
