USA-Made Torker Pro ST

$1500 USD
This is a late 90s, early 2000s, USA-made Torker Pro ST race bike. I bought it in 2001 from Dan's Comp. It is a custom build with some solid parts. As you can see from the little circular holes in the gusset, this is a USA-made frame. This bike is rare, and in excellent condition. It's even rarer in such excellent condition -- you will likely not find a mid-school Torker in such great shape like this anywhere. I built the bike, and it was slightly too small for me, so I rarely rode it. A few times on the track, a few times on some trails. The paint is original. There are some cosmetic scratches on the top tube from putting it on the bike rack (see photos), and some scratches on the handlebars. There is a little rust on the stem bolts. I used the pedals on other bikes, so they are pretty well worn. Other than that, this bike is in near-perfect condition. It is really, really nice. Run-down of parts: Frame: Torker Pro ST, Made in the USA, bought in 2001 Fork: 2001 DK Race Forks Crank: Torker 3-Piece, Tubular Cro-Moly, Sealed BB Chainring: Torker, 44 tooth Pedals: Sun-Ringle Platform Wheels: Araya Rims w/ GT Mohawk Hubs (roll endlessly) Tires: Tioga Comp III, 2.10 front; 1.75 rear Freewheel: ACS, 14 tooth Headset: A-Headset Stem: 2001 DK Race, XL Handlebars: DK Race Brakes: Tektro V-brakes Grips: ODI Rogue Seatpost Clamp: Torker (stock with frame) Seatpost: Odyssey Saddle: 2001 Redline Race Saddle Chain Tensioners: Redline Chain: ???? Works fine; in good shape. Extra: I will throw in a matching set of Lizard Skin racing pads. They're pretty much the only pads that will work with the twin top tube, unless you have some Torker pads. I also have more photos. If I have forgotten anything, or if you want more information, let me know.

Pinkbike Poll: What's the Most You'd Spend on a Mountain Bike?
This poll has no real bearing on price. The market tells them what they can sell -- not some poll on a website. Yes, I would rather pay $1k for a bike, but that's not what they're selling them for, so I guess if I can, I will pay $4k. Competition is what drives the costs down. If a company feels like its losing customers to another company because one company is selling comparable bikes for a lower cost, then that company will lower its prices. If it can't move inventory at a certain price, it will lower its price. That's the bottom line.

Review: Fox Ascent Gloves
@jamieridesbikes: I returned the Flexairs because I couldn't get them on, and they also felt cheap. But mostly Fox has been all right by me. I had a pair of Dirt Paws that lasted 10 years or so. I also had another pair of Fox glove (forget the model -- maybe Rangers?) that lasted just as long. I had a really good pair last year that fit excellently, but I lost them, to my dismay. Went to replace them, but the fit these days seem inconsistent -- one pair of dirt paws is too tight, the next too big, and they're supposedly the same size.

Pinkbike Poll: How Long is Your Average Mountain Bike Ride?
@nvranka: Maybe. But I'm right. Life is bigger than yourself, than going on a bike ride. We have been conditioned to see having kids as a burden, and it's scary to let go of everything being about yourself. But I'm telling you, having kids is one of the biggest joys life has to offer. Anyway, nothing wrong with going on bike rides -- we need it. It's a worthwhile pursuit as far as recreation goes, but it's not the end-all and be-all of life.

Pinkbike Poll: How Long is Your Average Mountain Bike Ride?
@DaveJube: I'm really only doing what I've got to do. Don't get me wrong -- I love bikes and riding A LOT. Riding is fun. It's great. But it doesn't give much meaning to life. It's like a video game in a way -- you go out and get that rush. Family gives life meaning in a much more significant way. I can trade a few hours of riding for something that is, for me, a lot more fulfilling. Doesn't mean riding isn't fun, or no longer worthwhile -- it is -- but there are more important things in life. Glad I found it.

Pinkbike Poll: How Long is Your Average Mountain Bike Ride?
I don’t ride or ski nearly as much as I used to because of my kids, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
