"Tig, what is that stuff on the ground? Looks like salt or styrofoam or maybe sand." Said the SoCal native. :D

Yea, I think my Ventanas are going to:

A) Be jealous

B) Be given a run for their money on the trail!​

TIG, Tigger, Catch, super nice pix! Thank you.

At least we have the holidays to distract us from the wait time! As soon as we have all the parts the build will commence. There will be photographs off the build, followed shortly buy the maiden voyage.

Sounds like we'll have 99% of the build here this coming week. Only waiting on 15mm axle from Chris King. We'll have this the week after. Soooo... we'll be building all that we can next weekend!

Sounds brilliant! A friend of mine has his Endo down to just a tad over 12kg! It's super sweet but he cries every time a rock hits his fancy carbon cranks. The bikes light but then you lose that advantage by having to carry a box of tissues ;)

Nic rides a large, she is just under 6 foot and it fits her well. Sad thing is she crashed her XC bike on a training ride and she now lives in fear of me claiming as my own;) .
Love Nic's cast......

.........and she's right. Duvet's are, in fact, a girls best friend. Just in front of down slippers, I believe.
