.....well almost.

A set of deraileur cables and a chain and she's done.

She's a bit porky due to the heavy FR/DH wheelset that I had laying around, but I'll change it out for something lighter later.

I'm gonna wait until I get to SEA to finish it so that Washington dirt is the first dirt that kisses the tires.............Merry Xmas to me!

He also makes some sweet levers for most brands of disc brakes. Solid stuff overall. Not to mention that it is Canadian. eh?

I thought you had long since headed west. There's no riding in that frozen tundra till at least April. Let's break that thing in next Sunday morning @ Bull if your still around. How bout it? Nice bike!
I'd love to my friend, but I leave for a stop off in PA on Wed. and I will be heading westward with my Pop next Sunday morning.

Besides, I got enough red clay sticking to my VP-Free. ;)

See y'all on the Left Side.

Don't tell my wife that- I'd have to find a different excuse to go drinking on weeknights!

EIO, sweet ride, that thing will be perfect for out here! I wouldn't sweat the wheels, snow level is currently at 1800' above sea level here so it's not like youre going to enjoy lighter wheels anyway. Plus most of our winter XC rides involve some air time opportunities.

EB was right about the lights tho- spring for an HID. We do about half our riding in the dark between october and march...

I hear ya. DT told me that at 6'3" 230 that the air would be just fine. I have read some threads though that contradict that a bit. What spring rate is on there. What about that gusset, why don't you have 2 of those suckers on the seat tube? That black looks delicious!
