Jimmy Wynn's Vintage '98 DBR WCF

This bike is bad ass. It's about as O.G. (Original Gangsta') as it gets for a bike that still gets ridden almost every day. This is a 1998 Diamond Back W.C.F. The W.C.F. stands for Welded Carbon Fiber. It is a really cool frame that has some innovative features you probably have never heard of...kinda like a virgin in Catholic High School. The tube set is carbon bonded to True Temper TT Light steel. The top, down and seat tubes are carbon that was woven on a LOOM, not rolled and formed in a mold! It has a Titec Ti Hell Bent riser bar, Titec carbon post, SRAM 9.0 PLASTIC brake levers, XTR rim brakes, Speedplay Frog pedals, Race Face Next LP cranks (1st generation), Manitou MRD Mars Elite fork, XTR/Mavic 517 SUP wheels, XTR cassette and derailleurs, S-Works Ti xc saddle, Specialized Pro Enduro 2.1 tires, Chris King red aheadset, YETI grips, Salsa Ti skewers, and Grip Shift 900 ESP shifters. This bike is in great shape, and I LOVE to see it getting rocked on a daily basis.

Jim Wynn used to live in Telluride, CO. He managed the Telluride Velo Club and created Team Telluride, a mountain bike team in the area! Jim is legit, and a funny-mo-fo who has been around ALMOST as long as Bert....ok, that was a cheap shot, sorry.

This old Klein Rascal was seen at Sea Otter, and was in GREAT shape!

This was a Mag 21 fork that Specialized licensed out and put a carbon sticker on, calling it their S-Works XC fork for a short time. This one was on a Stumpjumper FSR (about a second generation, I haven' seen this one in some time) at Sea Otter!
