    Joining the NRS Clan (again...lol)

    Well.. just got word from my LBS that my NRS frameset should be here by the end of the week! I'm going back to a NRS for my XC ride. I had a 2001 NRS1 and liked it but I was dead set on needing a bigger "trail" bike. So I sold it and ended up getting a new Heckler - and I'm realizing it was way too much bike for me and my usual trails. So I'm in the process of parting it out to pay for my new NRS. Currently the bike build looks like this.... 2004 NRS Air frameset, Manitou Black Super 80 SPV, Full XTR, Mavic XC717 Disc rims, Easton EA70 stem, Monkeylite bar, and EC70 post. I'll post some pics as it comes along but with a little luck I should be together this weekend for a test ride!

    I'm outta here!

    I'm so excited to get it - the Brown truck is going to be a Brown Santa to me - I'm very pumped to get it and ride!
