All I'm missing now is to have the Tuned Z1, and I'll have my bike ready to ride!!!!

According to the notice, it was in the mailbox since 10:20AM on the 31st, and I have been able to pick the bike up not 2 minutes walk from my house since the 1st at 1PM.

Bummer isn't it?

The post office opens at 8AM only today, and I'll be in school by then. I'll have to pick it up when I get back. This'll be a looooong day.:madman:

Here are the pics.

The box


Woot!


Who said bike builder's can't make good packaging guys as well?



The bike as it just came out of the box


Lotsa goodies!!


Don't you wish your girlfriend was hot like me?


This was just to give me a general idea of the stance the bike will have once built up. This doesn't reflect the build in any way. The only thing that will remain from this pic is the front hub and rear rim.


I hope you enjoyed it!!

mm... eeeeehhhh..... just another

BADASS RIDE! man, what is it with this forum bringin' the HEAT lately? I'm sweatin' here...
Nice stance snaky, just makes ya' wanna get up ta get down! I got ants in ma' pants and I need ta' dance!!!!
and I like the new heat treatment facility, stress relieving there. haha.

but seriously, you're gonna strip that front wheel just for the hub??? not worth it IMO. With that S-type on there (seems to be a hot rim right now for resale) I'd try to sell it complete, then build up, or buy a new complete front using some of that money back.... It's not gonna save you much money at all to cut down a mid grade wheel, then pay someone to lace up a new $60 rim to the hub.... and I think selling it as a complete 20mm front will bring you more bucks than just an s-type alone... Also, Formula isn't that cheap... they have a pretty cool Carbon tube 20mm front hub and some solid rear offerings now too it appears... anyway, your choice...
and if you're only waiting on the tuned Z1, why not build'er up now and just run the DJ3? or is it some sort of purity thing? haha...

now get that thing in the air, snap some pics and make it 11 threads! :D
I wish. Way too much snow right now. I won't be able to ride 'till early may, and the 4x track won't open 'till the 23rd of june. I'll be sure to put in some shovel time to help though.
