I've had the 29er itch for quite a while and I finally convinced the wife that I "needed" a new bike :D so after a few weeks she is finally done and here in Mexico. It's such a beautiful thing that I almost don't want to get it dirty ;)

BTW, thanks to Larry for "geting things done"!

Way nice. WAY nice!

That's an XL Sultan frame + Rockshox Revelation... I've got the same plus a bunch of other components scattered around my room. Black + black like yours. Thanks for the inspiration! Yours makes me eager to get mine built up.

Hints, tips, tricks, suggestions?

Looks Sweet! I was thinking about my next Turner recently and the anodized black with the red anodized parts was a top choice for me. I would like to see a red anodized rear triangle with a black front. I wonder if Turner would do it and how much extra it would cost.

Looks just right. I like the red tidbits on the black frame as well.

Great shooting too. Nice photos.
Thanks, I used a 50mm 1.4 lens which is awesome to get that type of depth of field.

Let me ride the bike and I'll let you know if there's anything I would change; so far the only thing I can tell you is that its TALL compared to my 5 spot!

Also, the other color I considered was blue, which would look really cool against black also!

What he meant was swap the skewer so the lever is on the non-drive side.

Great looking bike.

I know, I swapped it for the picture of the skewer lever and the derailleur. Its back in its place now!
