    more than a little pal. it showed up today and blew my mind! saw it at the front door as i passed by the window on the way to work so i brought it in and took it down into the shop, of course i had to open up the box and take a peek before i left. then i just had to put it in the stand. after that ther was no choice but to gaze i bit as i went through the envelope and tube. i was a few min late gettin to the station.

    after i got off about 10, i picked up candycorn for a late dinner without a glance, met squish at applebees, grabed the h/set press, crown race setter and steerer cutting guide in his messenger bag, had some pesto shrimp pasta and 2 brutus's and made a beeline back home to build it up. took longer than planned but as ya know ya gotta treat every piece of new h/ware with a lube of some sort, theres a few mods to make and some new cable routing to play with till i was happy. all the pics i took were time killers too.

    by the way, instead of cuttin up a reducer, a old school jagwire stepped plastic ferruel works sweet! pics of that and the routing around the s/t are below. thoughts?

    thanx buddy. this is a 11 year dream come true!

    Wow, I am impressed. is it too late to nominate this for TOTM?

    If not, then next month for sure, because we have a definite winner here.

    Good work, CC!

    Old Skool indeed

    So...rear travel is 3"? Is that 3" of travel like the Nitrous is 3" of travel? Obviously, if DT made a bike with this style of rear suspension his was the penultimate transcendent iteration. Do I see a horst link somewhere?

    I bet PUSH would buy you a six pack of something just to have the honor of mapping the suspension curve on one of their fancy shmancy machines.

    On your parts list I see you listed XTR 952 shifter pods and Avid black brake levers but your picture seems to indicate separate XTR shifter pods and XTR brake levers. Hey, I've got two of those 8 speed XTR shift/brake combos on my Turners and I love them. And rapid rise, of course.

    What's the entire word that is only shown as "...tion" in one of your pics?

    And...how does it ride?
