His Cool New Bike

We've liked the Trek Sawyer bike ever since the Gary Fisher Collection was announced:

MY cool new bike

After searching and searching, thinking and thinking, comparing and contrasting, calculating and saving, I finally pulled the trigger on my first new bike since my "new to me" hand-me-down Gary Fisher Rig that I also still really, really like.  This will be my third fifth (I forgot about my 2 road bikes, both Trek's) ever brand new bike.  Bike #1 was a Trek Mountaintrack that I got for my high school graduation (1998) from Marinette Cycle Center.  Bike #2 was my Trek Cruiser Classic that I still have and ride quite a bit from The Sports Rack in Marquette.  This is a 2011 Rocky Mountain Metropolis YVR.  A crazy good deal was found earlier today and during lunch I bought it!  This is the first bike that I haven't bought in a shop.

I found this website of a graphic designer that may have designed the color block on the frame.

From what I could see in the photos on the graphic looks more blue than the graphic design webpage.  We'll see when it gets here!

After the Banshee...

After he sold the Banshee Paradox, he bought a Singular Swift (rigid, steel, 29er).  It looked a lot like this:

but had the Singular rigid fork that matched the frame.
