I don't have a photo of my downhill/xc bomber, an ancient K2 Attack 2.0. Looks like this one, except I ditched the rear caliper and installed a rear disc instead. They're mechanical, not hydraulic, but very stoppy. Even when wet.

This bike has been indestructible - except for blowing out the rear shock when I was at my absolute fattest, it has never needed anything except regular maintenance. It's also so ancient now that kids think it's cool again.

Hit twice on a bike, last time was a busted shoulder from the hit. Tend to pay way more attention in planning road routes when I do go out to use roads with more shoulder room.
