    Oozy in the Sky, With (raw) Diamonds

    I`ve started a new thread because I`ve heard several people mention they are waiting on their Uzzi Vp frames. I just, moments ago, received an email from the courier that mine has left the USA and is heading across the Pacific to me in Japan - exactly a month late, but all will be forgotten when I have her in my arms. That is, after the Japanese customs boys have their way with her....

    I hope the other people who are also waiting (we are quite widely dispersed if I recall correctly) also got some good news!

    Tokyo`s nearest gravity park, Fujimi Panorama Ski resort, opens in a couple of weeks and I may just be ready to roll......

    What bike shop are you picking your bike up from?
    Do you have a link to the ski resort? How far away from Tokyo is it? What prefecture?
    May the air be filled with tires!

    I went with WrenchScience in California; the Uzzi frame is like 4000$ from Japanese shops and they don`t import the large.

    Here`s a link to Fuji Panorama:

    It`s 2-3 hours from central Tokyo by car or train. 700m of vertical from the Gondola down. Also they have some pretty long cool-looking 20km descents to the Gondola base: looks good for dialing in a new bike; better than the more fall-line hairball sh*t! Everything is gonna be new on my Uzzi so I need some mellow stuff for the initial tweaking.....
