    my old mountain bike Gary Fisher Ziggurat. snapped it a few weeks ago, which is why i have the fuel frame now. same parts list except the GF had On One MarySS bars and a thomson stem fork was set to 100mm. this picture was with XTR rear derailleur and LX shifter. also the kind headset and bb were new purchase for the new frame.

    Hey now easy on his Cherokee, we have to have someone haul the groceries for us now and then.:D

    Cherokees are the fat chicks of the jeep world, no one wants one but someone ends up with one at the end of the day.:mad:

    Plus 10 feet off the ground, nothing but concrete below him and no helmet. Something about that boy just ain't right. He does have some nice bikes though.

    i've broken, every bone in my left arm, left patella, 11 ribs total, right collarone, right fibia, most of my toes and fingers, both wrists, both ankles twice, shattered the left side of my face and had to have my lip reattached.

    oh and i love my unibody, real jeeps have square headlights and leaf springs :)

    umm i'm wearing a helmet durign the backflip! but that's only because it was required at woodward!.

    and why make fun of cherokees? isnt that was liverty's and patriots and grand cherokees and commanders are for? OH and the 4 door JK soccer-mobile?

    i hope you guy both have at least YJ's or older if you're going talk :D

    92 YJ 4.0 stock and motor is full of water from last wheeling trip. Rebuild will hopefully be a stroker motor. Snorkel will be included in build.:D

    I also have a 1970 Jeepster Commando runs good but tore apart for needed body repairs.


    My wife and I were out today and I noticed a 4dr JK, even after all this time I still don't like the look of them, and I am not to impressed with the 3dr JK either. I have been waiting for jeep to step up and say. J/K (Just Kidding) and take them back and bring out a real jeep. I am big jeep fan but the JK just doesn't do it for me.

    Fabulous fotos, bro! Seriously, some of those are stunning! Keep taking them and keep posting them, please!
    What's the story behind the one where it looks like a tribe of cylists with touring gear? Reminds me of a charity ride I did once out west with a group called the Superheros.

    Thanks man, i need to get a better camera ha! the touring caravan was the day we saw off two of my friends (the two with all that gear) on their cross country trip to oregon from new jersey. it was to raise money for a fellow bike mechanic who passed away suddenly last spring leaving behind two daughters and a wife. i believe the trip blog is Pedaling For Alfie

    unfortunately i had just taken over management of the shop i work and couldn't take the 2 1/2 months off to join them.... maybe next time.
