    So Robyne and I bought new Mtn. Bikes a few weeks ago, haven't had time to snap a few pics yet however, the pic below is my bike. So far I love it. Very comfortable, shock is great, frame is light, and the components are even better. I love the Hayes hydraulic F/R brakes as well :) Definately worth the $$ if you are an avid trail blazer...

    Robyne's Bike isn't as spec'd out as mine since she is really just starting to get into the sport. The only difference between the pic and her bike is that she doesn't have discs:

    Between both bikes and the hookup I got from our local bike shop, we paid just over 1100 for both bikes :)

    Nice. Katie just bought a 4300 a few months ago. It's a nice bike! I need to upgrade my 5 year old GT junker.

    Whenever you want. Just not next week...to busy at work. :) I bought a rack for the heep to so we can go wherever.

    And yeah, I got them from edge, my cousin used to work there, and they remembered me from way back in the day, so they hooked me up :).
