Thanks Mike.

I'll break her in on my local desert trails. Exactly when that happens is up in the air as I'm in recovery mode right now... I know one thing for sure and that's that it can't come soon enough.

I'm swapping parts from my existing bike...

The black ano looks awesome...

But what is that color on your current bike? That is a sweet looking color.

How come? Whats the biggest deciding factor for you?
I like the new geometry, slacker, little lower, and more fork config options. Plus, I had a warranty issue with my existing Spot which helped me score the new one. The charcol frame goes back to Turner once the new one is built.

Yeah, I'm very stoked. The wheelbase grew by .625" so it sits at 44.625" now - I was expecting it to be a little longer so I'm pleased. The BB dropped about .1" to 13.7. I think the lower cup on the Canecreek HS is a couple mm taller than my previous CK headset. The HTA is noticeably slacker looking at the side profile and riding the bike - maybe 1*. I'm giving the Easton Haven carbon bars a try and I have a Chromag Lynx seat on the way to enhance the comfort factor. Only other changes I'd like to make are a 160 fork and possibly a new wheelset but those are further down the road.
