    Congratulations!!

    Use this time to do the following:

    1. Pray that it doesn't rain for a few days when you get it
    2. Make sure you're in good cardio shape so you can ride the crap out of it
    3. Bone up on your photography skills so you can upload lots of pictures
    4. Watch a YouTube video on fixing bent derailleur hangers

    5. When you get the tracking#, take the day off work on the anticipated delievery date so that you can be certain you are there when the FedEx Santa arrives.
    6. Clear a spot in your garage so that your new bike has a nice place to reside when you aren't riding it, or better yet a spot in your den, bedroom, or living room.

    PS: Thanks for the order! Hope you love it!

    Awesome list, lol! Airborne jersey, I'd definitely rock that in my next race.

    I actually have good pedals (Gusset Slim Jim) I put on my Diamondback. They're about the only things that aren't garbage on that bike.

    Guardian...

    11. Don't get on here and ask why the stem is backwards. Spin it 180 degrees and go ride!

    LOL!

    On the jersey subject, the black ones you have seen are DH jerseys for the sponsored riders and employees only. We are working on XC and DH jerseys for the general public but its taking longer than we would like due to high workload and short human supply! Right now we are spending more time on bikes and graphics and focusing on them.............

    Thanks!

    The waiting is the worst. Ordered my guardian the week before Memorial Day and was pleasantly surprised that it actually shipped out despite the holiday. Loving the bike so far.

    Be ready for time to slow down as the delivery day approaches! The day before my Guardian was delivered took forever - time turned into slow motion. Tick.............................................. ........................................Tock...... .................................................. Tick.............................................. .........

    And clear a spot in the garage? Why would you do that to an Airborne?! My Guardian sleeps in the home office, all tucked in comfy and cozy!

    Well, when you are like me, if you already have bikes in the den, the living room, and in your office at work........then the only place left is in the garage .
