My new Inbred!
I got a good deal on a partial build through Team Planet X a few weeks ago. Funny, I sold my trials bike (Planet X) and used that money to buy this frame. Hmmm... Anyway, I finally got to ride it today after the trails (okay, trail) dried up.
It's my 3rd SS, the first two being converted gearies. I have to say, this bike is noticeably more compliant than my Aluminum Rocky Mtn., and not entirely dissimilar to my old Kona (steel).
I'm happy to be on steel again. Dunno if it's the looong top tube, but the front end has less of a tendency to wander around than my old SS. Maybe that's it. It is corrected for a 100mm fork, and seems to sit a little taller up front. It's been a great bike so far, but that's only after staring at it for a few weeks and riding it once.
I ran into another SS'r at Green Mtn. today on a black Spot w/vicious fork. Nice guy. No other SS'rs today. Lots of FS bikes though. And in other news, apparently Thunder Valley is getting a facelift and will be on the national circuit next year. Good news for MX fans.

I had a sweet pair of silver/red spider Caramba cranks to put on there, but after installing rings on it I noticed that it spun a bit out of true. So either the spider is screwed or the taper is out of whack. The tapers aren't worn out at all, but something's not exactly straight.
Thanks for lookin'.
