Ok - being off the bike recovering from my hernia surgery has been expensive! Bought some new parts - M960 XTR Cranks and Jerich ring/bashguard, XTR/XT Disc Brakes, and swapped over my XM819 XTR wheels over.... Still waiting on my 2 cogs from Boone (19 and 21).

Whatcha think?

I especially like the "ting" of light from the cranks!

From the movie "The Stoned Age":

TING! SCHNAPSTER! :D :D :D

That's a Classic...

Two thoughts:

If this is what you get when you have a hernia, I have got to get me one.

If this is what you get when you have a hernia, you must have better health insurance than me.

Nice bike.

I agree.

Where do I sign up for a hernia?
I didn't get this due to the hernia... boredom off the bike got the new cranks and brakes (the bike is the same except I swapped my King wheels for the XTR so that this was all XTR). I still can't ride for almost another 2 weeks... 6 weeks off the bike mandetory - so I started tinkering because I can't ride.

I have good health insurance - $15 did the entire surgery. But most importantly I have an understanding wife... she understands and supports my biking addicition...

Thanks!

How long were you off the bike? I had surgery for a left inguinal hernia just before xmas, and hit the trails about 3 weeks later.

TrailGuru - had the frame/fork since July2003. Gene was awesome to deal with and I basically picked evey dimension for the bike. The only thing I screwed up on was the rear tire clearance on the chain stays - I can only run a 2.1 tire. No biggy... but it bummed me a little when I found out. But overall - one of the best bikes I've ever had. KAM used to have a Spicer Ti EBB frame also - I think he got like $600 or so out of his used on Ebay. The only reason I'd sell it is to get a big boutique frame - someday when money is just falling out of my pockets... (like a Seven, Moots, IF, or even a Ti Vulture).

24601 - I have he Aspide - liked it on the road bike and this one just says Singlespeed attitude... used to run a Fizik Cow Sddle before. :cool:

andy f - Dr's told me 6 weeks with no running or biking. I'm appearantly prone to these things - had a double repair 7 years ago also (no bikes for that one though...lol). I've ridden around the neighborhood but nothing serious...

Thanks Everyone!

Ah, good to know. Its always good to bring more independent designers into the consideration fold. I'll keep them on my radar.
