    Merry Christmas!

    Now I have to decide on a color!

    Brand new freshly welded Edge Cycles frame. Foco and Ultra Foco tubing mix. 'Nuff said, have to get back to the family.

    OK, a few closeups....

    This is what the welds look like before they are painted.

    Merry Christmas Too!

    Brilliant!
    Colors? Dare I say pink? No I won't do that. Someone else can do that.
    This probably isn't for you, but how about multi-colored stripes running in a vertical pattern over the whole frame? Kind of like Fruit Stripe Gum. Yipes! Stripes!
    Maybe not. On second thought that doesn't sound like a good idea. Don't listen to me.
    My morning espresso is starting to get to me. Must be time for another one.

    But whatever you do, don't paint the drive side furry tail. They tend to get somewhat less-furry after painting.

    Can't wait to see it built up. But I'm sure you can't either.
    Enjoy the family. That's part of what today's all about anyway isn't it?

    Go to your favorite local trail and look for a really cool rock (it will present itself) and have the frame painted to match.

    Looks like your talk about having a itch for a new bike worked! Rigid or bouncey up front?

    OTE is working? They didn't answer my email query as to why I can't select somthing other than USPS priority at $5.99 to mail their $11.99 Trail Guide. Media mail at $1.42/lb is OK with me.

    I second no paint, just clear-coat it. Besides, when it breaks in 6 months, you won't hafta worry about getting the new tubes painted!



    Yer gonna paint it glitter, aren't ya?

    It's not just shipping, its shipping and handling. Finding envelopes at OTE is a b1tch.

    Actually, it'smore than that. The computer program that takes care of the charges from the website would have to be programed to allow for that, that's a little expensive. Then the employee would have to lock the door while they go to the post office to take care of the package, as there is only one employee on at a time during the slow winter season. You are not going to get one to do it on their free time unless there is some sort of bribe (read:beer). As it is now, there are prepaid envelopes at the shop and the mail carrier picks up the packages, so there is no need to make an extra trip to the post office.

    If I were pacman I would give them a call and order it directly from a person and speak of mentioned briberies...

    really cool rock
    Too many things here are red sandstone color, like all the McMansions that are being built. I think it needs something non-native.

    I think I'll keep it rigid, not completely decided

    Pouncer is insanely jealous of the attention the bikes get. She always tries to be the center of asttention, so when I'm taking photos of the bikes, well, what do you expect?
