Dropped off my wife's early b-day present. Chainlove.com had a Blur LT2 with RP23 for $900.
Brand new, complete with grease gun and shock pump...even a chainstay protector.
Headtube and bottom bracket were even faced already!
I told her that I won't move the parts over from her Bullit until her birthday (mid Jan). :devil:
I think she'll have to one more ride on her beast so she REALLY notices the improvement.
Looks like I'll need a new seat post and definitely new cables, maybe some new tires to make it fly like the wind!

I'm almost as excited as she is! :thumbsup:

Who are you kidding, you're way more excited than she is!!! ;)

She'll be blown away by how much better it pedals and climbs, and you'll love that she is that much faster on the rides. win-win.

Parts are stripped off of Bobby's old frame and cleaned.
Some new parts arriving tomorrow.
Assembly begins tomorrow night.
Replacements for parts I broke should arrive in a couple days. DOH!
The forecast is even changing to a sunny Sunday for the inaugural ride.
...
Woot Woot!

It's the personal touches that make it your own

First ride was a success. Quick loop in Waterdog and down Carlmont to test out the climbing and how it handled the rough stuff.


Tonight I wiped off the speckles and Bobby picked out where she wanted her personal touches.

Maximum Overdrive!
