    If that's the course, we need to pull these guys out of retirement.

    I think we need more supportive statements from Giant dealers, euh I mean vital members. ;o)

    Needles bike now has a 63.5 deg ha and 13.7 BB "stock" without having to shorten the shock or use a manky headset to do it.

    we've actually used it for so long (years now) that i don't have original file name anymore. it came from our music licensing service...they have tons of random beats like this.

    stoked...it's on like donkey Kong.
    BTW what's the deal with saying "on a stock Glory" if every pic of Needles or his bike? I mean really, who cares if it's stock or not?

    Are his gloves stock? You should say that too.

  • Acadian

    8/30/2012 5:27 PM

    what part of the smiley face at the end of my statement did you not recognize? I was just being sarcastic and referring to mods they've had to make in the past. I have no doubt his bike is stock - was just wondering why it had to be pointed out every other picture/caption that's all
    disclaimer: this message was typed on a stock keyboard

    with that said...go NEEDLES.

    PS: I'm actually sitting in a custom chair.

    not a stock chair? weak.

    no weaker than my gimp backbone - I swear the human body was never designed to sit at a desk all day.
