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."
They're Canadian. You don't need to know anymore. Actually, I don't know anymore than that...
Hardtail - Marzocchi, Race Face, looks like a winner to me.
