2000 2 Hip Terra Firma

2000 2-HIP TERRA FIRMA

After being a die-hard Haro rider for years, I decided to try a different company...The next best thing:

This is my 2000 2-Hip Terra Firma.  This frame was one of the first of the Terra Firma frames from the initial production.  I read in Ride that Ron was coming out with a flatland frame.  I contacted Trend Bike Source, who informed me that the inital frames were done, but the company in china that was making the stickers didn't have them ready, yet.  I agreed to have the frame drop shipped to me right from 2-Hip without the stickers.  I received the stickers about two months later.

I built this bike from the ground up, hand-picking each and every part:
* 2-Hip Terra Firma
* 2-Hip Forks
* 2-Hip Flat Bars
* 2-Hip Stem
* Profile Cranks
* Ukai HP Rims/Nankai Rear Freecoaster/Suzue Front Hub
* Dia Compe Brakes
* S&M Pedals, Seat Post & Seat Clamp
* Primo Hemerrhoid Seat
* Hookworm Tires
* Kink Pegs

Once complete, I felt it would be a crime to scratch this beauty.  Therefore...I only rode it a few times.  It has been packed in my attic since 2000.

I still have every receipt for every part (Totalling $1410.00), including the shipping info. from 2-Hip.

One day, when my boys are old enough to handle a cream-puff like this, it might be theirs!!!
