    Yuppers... hit SoMo and it did great. This frame is versatile and efficient enough even the Pemberton Loop was fun.

    You can tweak that banjo fitting on the rear brake caliper to get that kinky bend out of the hose. That's a nice feature on the Elixer CRs that the Rs don't have. Looks like a fun ride.

    Still need to do some tweaking but thanks for the compliments. Glad I went with the Spot... it replaced a 2007 PUSHd Flux... I almost went with a 2009 Flux because I was thinking the 2009 Spot was sloppier than the 2009 Flux.
