May we meet again someday.

Come on lads, get digging through that folder called bike pictures (we've all got one).

Let's see what you've got to offer, be they fallen comrades or just left in the shed since you bought that levelboss which was never as much fun.

The first person to post anything long low and silver will be forcibly ejected from the premises.

After that came the Bt raven 4 but that counts as long as low so no pictures :P

This is my Zebdi, date on the photo is 2003. I had a DMR sidekick before that which I regarded as my first trials bike, but I don't have pictures of that :(

Snow Flake lacing used to be all the rage. I remember doing it to one of my front wheels because I saw Si Sagar with it done, and thought it looked amazing haha
