    well, got most of it done today... still need to grab an adaptor for the front brake and tune the derailleur and other small things, but here's what i got so far.

    Looks good will be interested in getting your wheel review.

    Why such a wide bar around here that would be tough to avoid clipping.

    Thanks guys.

    I just like wide bars man, my super moto has wide bars so it just feels right... Tree clipping can be a problem, but that's where I use those bike handling skills haha.

    I'll let ya know about the wheels. The bike came out pretty light, about 26 lbs.

    Got the rotor adaptor today, so I should have the bike wrapped up tonight!

    Finished! She rides as smooth as buttah! The Fox is really plush and stiff, drivetrain is quiet and the wheels just feel smooth and sound sweet haha.
