    I did it .... I'm a SS geek.

    Pulled the trigger this morning and Dave is building me up a sweet REEB. A customer didn't like the color that the frame came out so it was sitting there. He sent me the pick describing it as Caterpillar yellow, like the heavy equipment. I think it looks more short bus yellow, I'm kind of short bussy, I took it.

    The sweeper just got slower for now.

    The opposite happened to me when I got my first SS--suddenly I found myself riding a whole lot faster since I didn't really have a choice !

    Congrats!

    I've been looking for a long time. I think the REEB is the Galapagos iguana of SS. It's funny how close the new Niner ROS is to this bike.... wonder why....

    Groovy! You'll get some great mileage out of that. I agree with Kristian - you'll be faster, overall. What's the spec?

    Awesome! And by the way Jesus rocked a single speed. I just came up on my one year anniversary riding SS. Everyone is right, you'll get faster before you know it.

    Me too. I wonder if it has the Cummins 5.9 that's used to be in the long buses?

    If your going to make your bike look like that, is it going to be a fat bike?

    Will the REEB take a 140 fork? That's a key difference in the frames (between it and the ROS9), I think (not to mention EBB v. Sliders, shorter chainstays and slacker ht on the ROS).

    A 140 fork would be suboptimal on the REEB. You make a very good point about a few key differences there. The REEB is meant to do everything well in our environment - an all rounder per se. Epic rides, XC racing, aggressive terrain, you name it. We've spent our time on long travel, short stayed 29ers and have been less than impressed with them for our style of all day do everything kind of riding. While not quite a traditional geo, the REEB is still a little more classic in its numbers compared to the Niner or the Transition TRansam, or the Canfield Bros, etc. And don't get me started on EBBs...

    Nice looking frame, Jeep has a similar color called "Dozer" so that is some off-road cred. Enjoy the SS.

    Figured I better get on the ball. Can't be letting Ms. PBR get the jump too far on me. I can handle getting beat by chicks, but chicks on SS just make me look sad.

    So when is Lil' Mustard going to be on display for us, ya know, all built up and at a trailhead and such? Posing in the parking lot the first time out is mandatory.

    I did it .... I'm a SS geek.-reeb_008.jpg

    Rode a nice big extended lap at ridgeline last night with the T.I.T.S crew. I'm kind of pissed I waited so long to get this bike. It's everything I wanted. The ride is exactly what I expected it to be. Nice and supple and an extension of me on the trail. Another run and I'll drop the pressure in the tires and really cut it loose. The 2.4 Ardent up front and 2.1 in the back are going to tear it up. I spun the back wheel on two climbs and nearly ate it when the front end started to wash but expect that to disappear when I take the pressure down to around 22ish versus the 30+ that is in there now.

    Incredible service from Dave at Redstone. As he was building it up for me he tweaked a few things to make my build better and called it all good. Incredible bike from a top notch shop. THANKS DAVE THIS BIKE ROCKS!!! Anyone want to buy a 2011 Stumpy EVO HT? It's gong to get very little use in the future.

    Speaking of which, I really need to get up there for some Ridgeline sometime...

    Nice. I'm belt-curious so I like the belt drive set up. How do you like that fork? I found the surly steel to put the R in Rigid and moved on to a salsa cromoto grande.

    I really wanted the bike but had budget constraints. So far the fork is pretty decent. Later I might switch to the Salsa. The belt drive is the slickest thing around. Super quiet. I'm not tiny and when I mash on it, no stretch or anything. Really loving the bike.

    Thanks Tom!!

    I received the stickers and put one on! Saved the others for when this one fades or comes off. The Flag is on the seat tube.
