In the beginning, there was TeamCow. Who were they? Well, we rode, we rested, we ate, and we drank (not so much of the riding to be honest, but lots of the rest). And then I went on the internet to complain about stuff. It was somewhat popular. I also had The BikeGuide - pics of as many bikes as I could find. Now, they're both back, and always, our motto; "If you think you're in TeamCow, then you are."
Ionic is one of those little guys, based in Oregon. Nice looking bikes, and they make some really cool cranks.
E3 - Not a very good pic here. It's obviously an aluminum HT, but I can't tell what kind of forks are on there. Wait - I see now - they're Rock Shox.
