i bought a crappy "kranked progression" bike form canadian tire a couple years ago. big mistake. however, i modified it, and now its not so bad, just heavy as hell. i took out rear suspension, put on unused 2005 marzocchi dirt jumper 3's on it, put new pedals on it, and put on a sram x-5 derailluer. some other small stuff too. its been through alot of abuse, over like 500km of biking, about ten 4ft drops onto pavement and grass, countless jumps and so on... first pic is original, hard to see though. rest us what it looks like now. seats a bit lower though, but that changes depending on how i ride.
