    ... and if we just ... uno dos tres.....mi 5 Spot

    ok guys, i owe you some pics. got this bad boy back in november from 123. Solid build, great service, sexy bike. One of the reasons I love this bike is cause it reminds me of a bike my roomate had in college that I used to covet - his red Klein Attitude.

    Now whats even more fascinating is comparing it to my old ride, ahh yes the trusty old Trek. Frankenbike, i called it. The last of the triple butted steel Treks. And I could rip on that hardtail. It was fun, but as with all things, it's time has come.

    thanks for all your input in the buying process, guys. and 'Zilla for the gold headset idea. it's the only way to go on the red 5'er.

    build:

    large 5
    vanilla rlc/romic rear (soon to be push'd vanilla rc)
    king iso/mavic 3.1
    conti vertical pro
    XT hydro
    XTR rear/XT front
    XT cranks/BB
    wtb saddle
    answer pro taper carbon
    959's

    sorry about the poor pic quality - scanned, then reduced, then uploaded. sucky.

    Gott love that gold CK!

    Dude, get some better pictures before Pete sees these and spontaneously combusts!
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    Ha! Atleast it's not "leaning against couches, leaning against garage doors, or propped up against a tree." But whether a fence in the midst of snow is any better for Pete is to be seen... [SIZE=1]the suspense thickens[/SIZE]....
