Frame arrive yesterday. Built it up tonight. Still need a few minor things (adjust HB height, new chain, swap front derailleur), but given the forecast, I have till Feb.
Paul Love Levers bound to Avid Ultimates. Feel fantastic. I was worried about the lack of spring in the lever...not an issue. Rigid fork by Willits. Wheels are King/ DT 1.1s, 32h, 3x driveside, 2x non-driveside (Rear), 2x (Front). X0 grippies and X9 RD will be replaced with 2007 XTR as soon as my order arrives.
More of the same.
Under-TT cable routing. Pretty much the only structural piece that I asked for.
Under-TT cabe routing looks so clean in front. Head tube sticker to be replaced with badge whenever Willits gets them in.
Only one of these I have seen in/ around the shop.
All was not peachy, though. Brake bosses were powdercoated. I didn't realize that until I tried to put on the brake. Wouldn't come off, so I had to use a punch and a hammer. Knicked up the backside of a brake caliper pretty badly, and popped the bearing out. Also knicked the fork leg. That's what I get for working in low light.
It's been raining for like the past 8 months down here, so I don't know when I'll get a chance to ride.
