New arrival.... a happy, healthy ML
Just received my new rig and couldn't be happier. Thanks to all that gave up your advice and the folks at Comp Cyclist for building up a sweet bike with a prety short wait. Now it's time to go abuse myself on it. Will post on the database when I get it dialed in, but for now...

Nice bike. Did you ride that spec before? It woul be interesting to know the differences...
no, the brakes were bsically off of reviews and backed up by Drew at CC and the the demo from CC was very decent but not was I was looking for (exactly). That being said, I put together what I thought made sense w/o losing durability. Thanks for the reply!
Congrats on your new ride - nice specs and light at 27 lbs. Hopefully you kind get a lot of riding in over the long weekend.
Very cool bike, dude....
Have more pics?
Please post a review on the K24's... I'm eyeing some K18's
Congrats! Awesome weight! It has very similar build as my friends. It's nice to know that his will be around that weight as well. The frame will arrive next week and we plan to have build party on the weekend as we will be putting together two MLs. Will post pics once they are complete.
Great looking ride, oh its great seeing so many ML's coming onto the scene.........
