    Looks good Vern, but we need bigger pics, and once you get it more of them.

    The new shop is in Guelph, as of Apr 1. My frame has just finished being painted - I can't wait.

    See what I can do about the bigger pics, these are just what Hugh has email me with so far...the ability to run wider tires in a cross frame, drop bars with a custom speedhub shifter for drop bars, disc brakes(both ends). Can't wait to build it up and ride!

    I'm thinking it's a forum issue - I get the thumbnails but no full size. Hugh's pics are much larger than that.

    I saw the frame at the shop yesterday - looks good, from a distance anyway (it was hanging up high). I was there to finish building and pick up my new 29er. I'll get pics up shortly. It should actually be the next TN website update anyway...

    What is your intended fork, other than the P2? Carbon? Sounds like a solid build anyway; it should be a good setup for P-A.

    I'll be waiting. It's exciting when people get new bikes, even if it is not me. I should be due for a new bike by 2010 maybe. We'll see.

    Right now, so far I have the headset in and the P2 fork along with the salsa bar, Hugh will build up a nice "correct" fork for the bike later on, it was time frame issue along with the move to guelph and being a few builds behind to hold off on the fork, never though of it, but I should have had the P2 painted as well, oh well, later maybe...avid bb7 brakes are on the way..I suck at loading pics, no high tech camera yet, at least I figured out my 20 dollar coby mp3 player, music to listen whilst racing anyways..

    What a stunning bike Jeff!

    I think it is worthy of its own thread, but I will leave that up to you.

    Sounds like an ideal machine for P2A.
