Well Mr. Warp and Mr. Rzoz have covered the weekend events, what I can tell of Expobici is that I scored a set of cheap wheels ($1600 with 11-34 cassette), this are the the same ones that I have on the Merida but with mountings for discs... So today I took the bike to a Competent Wrench in order to finish this build:
- Cutting and replacing the standard Hope lines for the braided ones.
- Centering the calipers and bleeding the system.
- Dialing derrailleurs, cutting the chain and giving the correct torque to all components.
- Setting shock pressure.
There are still some items missing, the original set of wheels is still 2-3 weeks away from here, I lended a race face seatpost meanwhile the Thomson one arives.
So this weekend I'm riding on the Flux!!!!! Weeeeeeeeeeee!!!!! Maybe on saturday I'll just seat the brake pads and on sunday I'll try something not too extreme...:rolleyes: I want to make sure everything works fine while the bike still is on D.F.

El Rivas
ps. WARP: Escort is a different line of work than edecan... btw, the pretty ones were in the Moto thing..!

We really don't care about your bike.....:p

JUST JOKING!!!!!!!!

Glad you have her built already and redy to roll!
It's certainly a blingy build that of yours.

Thanks for the clarification on the Escort word use. So, what's the word in english for "Edecan"?

I'm sure if you made the right offer, the "edecan" will become an "escort" :D The word you were loking for is "Hotchick"

Arivas: your Flux is turning out to be a bit like Rzozaya's Chameleon!
