    I should ask my friends there to drop some large ball bearings into frame, that way you won't need a bear bell.

    Your friends have a bit more integrity than that, unless you just forgot your . Internetz may be serious business, but messin' with someones ride is REAL LIFE!

    Though I wonder if that would satisfy the legal requirement for a noisemaker?

    Now it makes sense...

    Does anybody make fork's that are over 32mm in a 29'r geo?

    I'd pick Green also.

    let me get this straight you are saying you will get a bike shop employee to willfully sabotage a customers bike at cycle solutions...

    i can't believe how stupid you are to make such a statement in a public forum.

    i have no concerns andrew, though legal ramifications of such an act/statement that is now out in the public is quite serious. because at this moment such a statement has increased the liability of the shop if something happens (if i was nelson i would be livid). i would be careful mixing your friends with your place of work.

    I think there's a couple steps between "I should ask my friends to..." and "I will get my friends to...", specifically: should -> will, and ask -> get.

    yeah it was a toss up, lots of sleepless nights. fat tire is still in the works though, they are just so cool and have a place in my stable of bikes.

    the rational for this build is mainly for icebiking on the humber river (studded tires) and to experiment building features for 29ers (oh i will take it to blue ).

    doesn't matter how many steps, this is also coming from a person who has also said on this forum that he will try to get me in some way... i can only draw two conclusions... he has extremely poor judgement or psychiatric issues... one thing i can say that this can be easily construed beyond banter and into harrasment. perhaps having this out in the public will make him think a little before posting such statements, then again perhaps not.

    I like the green best too but it is a shame that the other two colour choices are so mundane.

    What are you thinking for wheels?
    Please enjoy seeing this terrible collection of me - something wonderful is about to happy.

    Do you have a stick up your arse or are you even dumber than I thought?

    Let me explain this to you once more, you've seen this before, you'll likely see it again.

    You seem very sensitive. Remember, you are willingly volunteering information about yourself on the internet. Nobody is forcing you to post what bike you are getting and where it is being built.
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    I like pink for an accent color .... so if it was my bike I would go polished (more options to play with). Pink and gooseshit green is harsh.

    Wheel set choice will be interesting

    Transition needs to turn down the suck, turn up the good!

    Green might look pretty dated in a few yeas anyways... usually polished or bare frames don't end up looking old.

    Philshep spent the better part of last winter polishing every inch of his Nomad and it is totally sick looking!

    Hmm, not sure i approve... I will say it's healthier than polishing a rifle collection.

    that does not justify on what was said nor negate forum rules based on what was said. what's good for the goose is good for the gander as they say
