Haven't posted a lot but I've lurked, learned and updated my knowledge base that was slightly outdated.
I also purchased my first bike in 25 years. Dayum - where did the time go? Oh yeah - working hard & enjoying life.
I have a few things to wrap up - determine how high I want the stem, cut the tube, get black spacers if necessary (shop only had the chrome), crimp off the cable ends, etc. I've rolled the handlebars forward a bit and added a speedo already. Those aren't shown - the pic below is the build+5 one.
I've been doing only short & easy rides - I'm going to enjoy this bike.
I'm thinking Copper Canyon, Chihuahua and Batopilas for the first big trip next year. We'll see.
Edit: I'll still be lurking and maybe asking stupid questions! I ain't leaving.
