Not a racer but love to hit up the knarliest trails...rock gardens, roots, jumps you name it. Sure i can ride a lighter bike but love the confidence of riding a burly bike. Sort of a freerider?

Time Capsule: 2001 - Pinkbike's 20th Anniversary
I remember seeing a picture of a large yellow monstrosity called the rubber ducky. A brooklyn machine works dual chain driven steel fs frame with like 10 inches of travel and a mx fork.and rear shock. And a floating rear brake. All weighing in at almost 80 pounds. And I also remember reading the story on how the owner used to ride across the brooklyn bridge back and forth between the shop and his apartment with it. Craziest part about it was that I wanted a bike just like that but had no skills or need for it lol.

Bike Check: Graham Agassiz's Kona Operator - Black Sage FEST 2018
@jaame: I think I remembered the sizes wrong. 28in. is the newer standard, which is labeled 622x25 or 622x54 on a 29er. Ironically it's the 27inch that's bigger at 635mm bsd lol.

@DGWW: yeah name-wise the tacomas been around since the 90's. They are practically the same class truck as the original pickup (just like the t100 is to the tundra).

What Are Your MTB Pet Peeves? - Opinion
When people log the multi-use xc trails and leave the mess all over the place. Very difficult to walk around and damn near impossible to ride over!!!

@number44: 28 inch was the old road tire size. It's ever so slightly taller than a 700c.

GT Bicycles' Timeline Museum - Sea Otter 2018
Putting an igh in the frame would probably be so much cheaper to develop a gearbox bike than to develop a whole new gearbox. If more companies followed suit, that would likey be the end of mtb derailleurs. I would totally ride a bike similar to the gt it1
