I ride a Trek hardtail.
Same here, a 6500, they don't make that model anymore though :(

Nice bikes though.

I thought I had some stored on line somewhere, but I can't seem to find them.

I'll get some new ones if you want to see it!

I DID find a pic of my not quite finished Fatty though.

I still need to mount the light on the fender and have the fork powder coated black.

Yeah I have a hand made road frame I've built up.
Since it's a retro (70's) frame I built it up with old Dura Ace components from around the same era. (mostly) I'm still looking for a Black Dura Ace front dérailleur.

As far as how much I have into it it's hard to say since it's been a work in progress.

(like everything else I own it would seem :confused: )

You gonna ride it around the rim of a canyon and have a friend film while you plunge into it, like that video linked here not to long ago? That would be cool.

Someone, explain to me, please why do people go crazy over bikes like this?
I was never able to understand.

Is this a Harley substitution? For cruising along your local boulevard?
But then, US cities do not have boulevards to cruize along. They are all taken up by cars...
