    Well I guess I'm getting the blasted finish and you know what I think I like it, well I have to I guess. No it has really grown on me and I wouldn't change a thing.

    I think you will love the finish bOb...so subtle and clean, and that head badge is really really nice. Match that frame with some matte carbon bits and you will have a very nice machine. I am guessing too nice to bring out on anything other than hero dirt!!

    It is one of my specialties, and you are not my only victim.

    I see you edited your rant, but constantly missing deadlines and breaking promises says a lot about how a business is managed. History usually provides a lesson that places like that don't stay in business for long, as the shortfalls you are experiencing are usually not only limited to "just" missing deadlines. I am guessing the employees there have experienced some of the same headaches you have....come payday.

    Small businesses should do everything they can to meet and EXCEED customer expectations. That is the point of a small business!! To be able to work very close with a customer, and provide them with an experience and product that they could not get with any other business.

    Well they are doing me a big solid sending it next day so it should be here tomorrow. Burnt Orange told me the other day that I sounded like his wife and I'm thinking there might be some truth to that

    Overall there has been a few delays that they might have been able to avoid and a ton that couldn't be avoided but Todd had went well out of his way to basically reinvent his stock frame design to fit my needs. I do know in the end I am going to have a one off frame that should do exactly want I want it to do and I have never once second guessed my decision to go with them. Complete pics tomorrow.

    I sat and stared at the box for about a half an hour, kinda like waiting outside her on your first date and afraid to knock on the door.

    No way, I picture a kid on X-mas morning, going crazy, pieces of box & wrapping flying everywhere! Giggling, yelling, and jumping up & down....

    That is your first issue...don't just sit there staring at it. Get your fingers in there and do some work! Then when you've got the box good and loose, pull it out.

    Yeah, after all is said and done, he can't pull the trigger.

    Maybe...it's just a box; doesn't look batter enough to have gone through a proper shipping.

    I got er done last night just waiting on the proper furniture polish that will be in today so I can get some final glam shots before giving it a good thrashing tonight. Turned out better than I expected and the weight it decent as well.

    A little teaser before I put Bluto on.

    This thing rips, I couldn't wait to ride it so no complete pics yet. I washed it tonight and will get some on tomorrow. Here is a few I did manage to squeeze off. Oh and I am now a huge advocate for shortish chainstay length at least for summer thrashing.

    That sounds like a plan! Give us some notice and we could design and build your gravel bike that week.

    That looks incredible, Bob. What's the geo of the frame, particularly HTA & CS length?
