Rider Found Dead

After lusting for a singlespeed for years, I have ordered a bunch of parts that I hope will soon be attached to each other in my basement. I couldn't resist the Zion steel EBB frame from JensonUSA for $299 (I'm still riding the last discount frame I got from Jenson - a Jamis Dakar Expert for $129). I'm going to build it up with a Zoke EXR 105, Avid mechs, XT disc/rynolite XLs, Truavtiv SS cranks and some other stuff that I found on sale at Jenson and at Bluesky. The final bill came to about $1100, which surprised me a bit, but I think it's going to be a pretty nice ride.

Can't wait!!
