Smile Show me your Bike (Bicycle)

Just wondering how many bike riders are here on the forum, as i see many have racks but no topic on the thread of bikers/bikes

I have just recently been influenced by my brother and friends in riding, he a road bike user in Houston, but i moved back to South Africa now and friends are on mountian bikes, i have decided on a mountain bike myself to join with friends for some healthy fun activities

Bike is a Specialized Epic Comp 29

Anyone else?

just got the bike less than a month ago along with some accessories

Am still waiting for the rear Cateye safety light to ship to South Africa

*sorry for the bad quality pics

Yes sir! Got a front brake installed on the TK3 as it didn't come with one when I ordered it from Felt.

Question

How do you embed photos in text? All I know how to do is attach them at the end.

Love it. Thinking of getting a non S Works Carbon this year, but really want the CCDB, so may just build up from the frame.

Thanks man. I really debated a long time about it, but just decided to splurge.

The new CCDB with the climb switch is excellent. I've thrown some clipless pedals on it, and it climbs decent.

Really old pic of the road bike and previous 26er:


Departed monkey motion, likely to be replaced by a Spesh Enduro 29er

You guys give me tons of motivation to go out and buy a bike, but there's just too many idiots out there. A biker was killed today not far from my house, and this is what's holding me back. My city offers biker lanes, but still that's not gonna keep you safe from an individual that's texting nor a 70 year old who can barely see.
