as we've all been subjugated to hugh's post about how he rolls....and i got an earfull from rut and Donkey about putting my wife (newbie to MTB...but prefers my 29er when going out for spins...hmm) on my only custom sled. so i took their warnings and went by the LBS and they had exactly what I was looking for:

a- steel
b- 29er
c- ss or geared


let's just say that everything was met. glad i've worked in a shop and had plenty of parts just lying around- the only thing other than the frame that I needed was tyres. rad.

her new sled:
Kona Explosif 2-9.

parts: yup. its got em (kidding)

bling to attempt to keep up with hugh:
titec Hellion ti bar
king pink headset (1st generation)
pauls levers

well, that's where that ends :D

else:
reba
avid mechs
thompson stem
truvativ cranks
XT casette
pc-9something chain
kona $25 platforms
odi lock-ons
salsa skewers
alex td-17's with xt hubs
x-9 shifters
seat
cables
housing
tires..

now, what the hell do i do with all this useless 26er stuff?

at one point, it took three bikes to assemble the parts for her bike. brakes and levers from the kona, handlebar and bb from the dean- that and my sofa king was built up as geared and a quishy front end. that had to go. so, those gears and floppy front end went on the kona.

btw- kona handles just fine....for a geared bike (what a snob!)

seriously- anyone want a kona cowen w/ beefy wheels and a sweet fork? not to mentiona deak with the trimmings you see. make me an offer- oh wait- wrong board!!!!!!!!!!! :D

Tread lightly. The Forum Stormtroopers sense a disturbance in The Force. :D
