    I step inside away from it for a minute and that's all it took.

    I thought I lived in a good neighborhood too.

    Bite your tongue man - how could you harass the guy during such a difficult period? Jim - so sorry about your loss man. I've got a Proflex 856 frame hanging in my garage that you can ride. Thieves can be such bastards....

    At least they left you your front derailer and headset. The street value of those must've gone down....
    I have no idea what I'm talking about...But yeah, that sounds about right.

    I didn't think it was really a theft, I thought it was a picture he staged. If it was theft, then I am truly sorry and I didn't mean to harass you.

    I was just being a smart-ass. I'm sure that his insurance will cover the theft.

    and add a few inches of suspension.

    I was holding out to post a pic of it, but I just noticed something about my large frame... it's not a large. My receipt says large, I had a "large" one set aside for me... As I was peeling the half dozen retarded stickers off it, I came to the last one. (frame 18" size). Medium in other words. So now I have to go down and test ride a 19 to see if I can stick with the 18 that I have built up or if I have to come home and tear it down to swap.

    Feels a little short, so I might just go ahead and tear it down.

    Man - that's rough, build up a new bike only to find out it's the wrong size. Don't trust 80% of the people at that shop.

    No biggy, they took care of me and I've already tore the old one down, took it down to swap, brought it back, built it and test ridden. This one feels WAY better. Not as cramped and the shock feels better too. I still have to desticker it, drop it to 5.3 and photog... First things first though, DINNER.

    is making a comeback.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    For a true test ride, you should come down for a brunch ride at the Park. I'll be taking a "smoking break" at work some time in the late morning - they won't even know I'm gone....
