A Death Star-like Tractor beam... luring me into the world of the two-niner. And one of my bros Mike Ahrens of Ahrens Bikes is interested in dialin-in one for me. Mike is one of the first people I met when I moved to the Bay Area. In fact, he had just completed a design for a senior year engineering project at Santa Clara when I met him literally the month I moved there in the mid 90's. It was a full suspension rig which Paul welded up for him. I just had to have it. Totally unique design. And so, it was done. Big and was free ride before free ride. I had a White Bros DC110 triple crown and a tuned Risse Racing rea shock on that thing. Steel frame. Boing!! We proceeded to ride a zillion miles together in the rolling hills of CA from Napa's World Cup courses to epics weekend after weekend in Santa Cruz bombing the super secret stuff. Memories...

Well, Mike's all grows-dup now and so have his designs. D-E-L-E-C-T-A-B-L-E . He's applying is deep engineering and CAD piloting skills to manufacture lots of core bits such as lugs, stays, slider drop outs, etc that are almost too pretty to ride:

So I've posted the Moots to Craigs if any'n is interested. I love the Moots but I need to move on. The 29-er is calling.
