just got off the phone with turner and as the convo went on the ups truck picked up my new frame for delivery! what timeing huh? so heres a update. turns out its gonna be a slightly used '05 h/l rear, not the '06 tnt i thought was gonna be on it (not that it matters), on a slightly used put freshly powder coated '02 RFX front with some tastey custom mods to the hydro guides on the top tube. it will indeed have both 5" and 6" rockers as well as a DHX coil and a AVA. the color is a custom "blue streak" from olympic with silver bold turner logos if they got those on and im sure they did. oh, a rainbow headbadge to make it more old school. always liked the way those looked anyway. should be here next week if all goes well.

funny note. i was emailin with dt just before i called to check up on it and askin for a total so i could make payment. mid letter i checked my balance to make sure i was good to go and got the scare of my life. a $????.?? charge was "pending" and i saw my new bike go up in a stenching black cloud of credit card fraud. it quickly dawned on me that they had my bank info on record after the flux purchase so i immediately called turner to make sure the charge came from them, dt did some fast dbl checking and indeed it had. PHEW! dont think my heart rate was that high climbin mt eldon in flagstaff! i calmed down fast enough and had a great chat with dt for another hour so all yer new frames shipping dates are now 1 day later. sorry folks. its all my fault!

pics to follow in dec. you betcha!

I mean, nobody really thinks DT just looked in the trashcan, saw some bits, had the front end PC'd, then thought 'I can sell this to cactuscorn', for some cash did he???

LMAO CC!!!

naaaa. i didnt think that, man. wasnt sure were you were goin but it looks like i missed my own joke huh? thanx for bringin me back down to my station.

hell, i didnt know about the anno green! but if i had..... maybe, just maybe. i used to pine over this old bmx team that ran blue, green and white stuff. think of it with blue king bits and some polished bits! but in the end im a blue guy. if its blue, i own it! dt did me a real solid by helpin me with this color.

Your bike shipped, your fork arrived today, and your gonna crap when you see how beastly that bad boy is. Man now all you gotta do is get yer front hub bits and you'll be set.

By the way I need to sneak that Titec back from you. They're gonna send me some new hardware for it, but I need to get some pics and bolt sizes to send in.

I wouldn't say your old, just well wheathered. Same as yer old Burner, and apparently your new RFX (JK)

happy trails...

oh, and dont forget i gotta pay for all this crap somehow. even though the frame is so old dust chokes next to it, it still set me back a pretty penny. ill assume the rest of the parts came as well.

the stem is in hand. i wont forget it.

Sadly that's the only thing that showed up today strangly enough. I'm pretty sure you'll get that crap paid for pretty quick. You won't be able to let it sit there that long. It's killing me having that Talas and Float RL sitting there, have to wait till after the holidays though. Then the fun starts.

happy trails...
