    I traveled once in a hatchback ford focus for work and I hauled my bike in the trunk with both wheels off. For one trip I was not going to buy a rack that would mount to the rental car. If I was doing it all the time I might have a different viewpoint.

    Daamn! Pretty tempting, and i sincerely appreciate you willing to go out of your way to do it. I may take you up on that but i cant at this second. This shop near me has a bike tech who has a medium Scout and said he will let me test ride it. So let me do that, and also see how the Mojo feels and then decide from there.

    Just let me know what you end up deciding. I was between the scout and the ibis hd5. The scout was in stock and the hd5 was not but that would not have changed my mind.

    If you end up liking the scout and can’t get one locally, call around. A lot of shops will ship to you or LBS to you for reasonable pricing if you ask. You could even pay for a prepaid shipping label through bike flights if the shop insists on having the scout shipped to them.

    I’ve ridden a Mukluk. My sister and her husband both had them. This was maybe 3 years ago though. They were pretty heavy back then, fun bike though. Hopefully they’ve lightened them up a bit since.

    Who makes the fender, < dumb question. Lol - But seriously. Or is it a shock splash guard?

    Good times in Breckenridge on the Django. It’s easy to forget how fun blue trails are on short travel rippers.
    Damn smoky though. Ashes on the car when I got back.

    That looks amazing!

    Quick question. If you could only choose one 10-15 mile loop to ride in that area of CO, which would it be? I'm currently planning to ride the 13 mile Little Scraggy Loop near Bailey, but any advice on something better would be much appreciated. If you have any recommended camping spots near where I end up riding, that would be very cool, too! (the ride will be on the 28th of August if you're interested in joining me).

    Nope. What the market will bear.

    Different story b/c it was used but I own a 1997 GT Vertigo, got it in 2003 and I've not ridden much at all. If I sold it today, you bet your ass I'll expect quite a bit more than the $50 it cost me.

    I went for a ride this afternoon after work. I think, maybe... this was a mistake. I've been on vacation for two weeks with no riding and the worst possible diet, so i'm sure that didn't help either. After it was all said and done, I'm still glad I went but be careful out there and stay hydrated!

    Can you please put this bike up for sale? I’d love to see how that works out for you for entertainment purposes only! :popcorn:

    Not planning on it, but seeing as the same year with no decals, bad paint and some of the original parts missing just sold for $250..and the frame-fork combo alone sell for about $150 or so routinely, I think I'm confident I could get more than $50 for something all original except grips and brake pads. My chrome could use a polishing but it's in good condition. Wheels are straight with no dings either. Oh, the same seat my bike has just sold for $55-60 from someone I know.

    Sounds strange but this year even 1990s GT stuff has been going up in value.

    I realized while pulling into the trail yesterday that I am the definition of the stereotypical mountain biker. Toyota Tacoma hauling a full suspension bike loaded onto my 1UP rack because my rooftop tent is taking up the bed. 5.10 shoes, osprey pack, and most importantly a mustache.

    Ahh so it’s more of a collectors item. I read it originally thinking you were riding it and the people that were buying it would be doing the same.

    My particular one, not really ridden so still has even most of the wear items it came with. Honestly if I was willing to part it out I might get more all in all than as a whole, but that's if you find enough people to want each part etc.

    You would be surprised though, BMX has people just as into it as old car enthusiasts. Check my post a few pages back for a couple of my bikes, one which was a restoration project.

    Back then the bike wasn't anything special but nostalgia can do it. 1980's GT bikes have been expensive for a long time and now it's trickling down to 90's stuff..plus people that want to ride this year aren't finding new bikes easily if at all so the secondary market rose, plus having more disposable income in some cases.
