    Cove Handjob build finished...

    Here she is, I love it. Geometry is perfect, welds are perfect, good quality frame.

    Thanks to those for helping me out with frame specs and such during the decision process.

    Nope, one of these.



    I don't have a digital pic of mine, but the build is quite close to the bike above.

    I don't have all that much trail time on it actually. I mostly use it as my commuter bike, hitting the trails occasionaly on the way home. Most of my time on it is on the road. For trail use I'm usually riding either my Blur or Bullit.

    The Hummer has a great reputation here in Vancouver, and anyone that I've talked to that owns one, loves it.

    There are a couple of other Hummer owners that post on MTBR. They have posted in this thread.
    Cove Bikes Thread

    Maybe reply to that thread, asking them for their opinion?
