I scored another new old fork. Getting harder and harder to find a new fork that is eight years old.

Fatty fork

 The legs are single butted Supertherm. If I were to make this fork by request, I'd definitely have a slimmer dropout with some speed holes and a thinner steer tube. This one will fit 4" tires with a ~.35" gap on each side.

 That is a stainless brace. I'm going to take advantage of this fact with the paintjob.

 Half trails, half skatepark and half pumptrack. That splits them into some kind of fraction I can't even measure.

 I really could have used this last weekend, but here is a quick little 31.6mm pivotal post. My dropper post is 2-3" taller than this and prevents this hardtail from being a good dirt jumper. The added standover makes for a much better rocky terrain DJ bike.

 Sand bike in the works. Just waiting on 100mm BB shells and some RaceFace cranks
 some V brake posts and a disc tab for Dave's polo bike

twin parks

thanks to Abel, Pepper, Cullen, Brandon, Ramon and the rest of the Austin guys for making Twin Parks a kickass place to ride bikes. I got a few more clips but technology is failing me right now. Go to the Trailpirate Facebook site and Youtube to see other views/lines in this place.

nice day out

A neon orange color accomplished with the tennis ball yellow plus a trans orange top coat:
 I refer to Alain's 24" MTB a lot so here it is again:
 Swaffords Anthills frame
Alain's parky 24:
 I didn't mention it in the post, but that broken Californian frame got a Stout downtube (bigger 1.5" diameter and a properly welded gusset) Better then new, with a pearl gray coat:

 Andrews light 20"
