Well, mountain bike builds are not uncommon - yet it seems not that many trail ride... I could be wrong lol
If you've seen the SCSW BoXer: YouTube - Santa Cruz Scooter Works BoXer II
forum thread here: http://motorbicycling.com/f23/new-fu...oxer-7689.html
then you've prolly seen the best
My bike isn't anywhere near as awesome, nor do I have a rear suspension or even a jackshaft - but I offroad it all
the time. The exhaust is in danger from rock strikes where it's mounted and I need to help it through the knarliest stuff by pedaling a bit (need the jackshaft lol).
Sadly I don't usually bring my camera with me when I hit the tough stuff, but here is a few pics from my "shortcut" home from work (the one that adds 20min to a 10min commute
) - thus the cargo on the back.
What bike are you planning on using? What are the trails like where you're at? Lookin' forward to pics
