Paging Regis!
They finally named a bike after YOU!

http://www.giant-bicycle.com/cn/030.000.000/030.000.000.asp?model=10082&lYear=2004&bikesection=8816

- it's odd that they picked a dirt jump/urban hardtail, instead of some lightweight XC racebike

btw - here's your next dreambike to lust after....and it's a Turner!!!

    The Turner is suh-weee-et! I like the pimp-gold colah! The STP is the second bike I've seen, you prob'ly remember the Trek soft tail from a few years back. By the way, Fuji made a "Regis"! It was a totally fay bike that you wouldn't catch me dead on.

      yeah, the Nitrous even impresses a complete non-racer like me...(although it might be my bike of choice if I ever do the VQ again) - 22lbs f/s WITH disc brakes?!!!

      did you see that the guy riding a Nitrous took second place at Sea Otter?

          Poor job on the Photo Shop. The guy's index finger is flexed at the MCP joint. It should be in full extension...

      This is really a dream bike for anyone who love bike riding and feel the passion in bike riding. It just got good reviews in writing essays uk blogs too. This one is has very good sleek design which helps the rider to do more stunts without any problem to the front shocks.

      I hear ya, I think the XCE is about as XC as I could go although like I said, if I ever wanted to go into the Abu Ghraib of mtn bike races, the Vision Quest again - that's probably the bike I'd want under me...

      I want to test ride a Highline soon...

        When I get my hands on one, I'll bring it out to the 310, we can ride it on some of those famous fire roads you got out there ; )
