    Can't wait till ThursGhey!



    Gotta be honest though....in talking to El Beastro and Larry, they seem more excited about what is in the box than I am! El Beastro even warned me to not have my wife around when I open the box and believe me, its not because of the bike.......I am very afraid

    Okay, what bike did you get this time, Fo? You better tell me. Is it a TM or an Endorphin?

    Edit- I just realized which forum you posted this in. So it's not an Endorphin.

    Hmm...38 lbs. I wonder how much a bike box weighs.....

    Okay, scratch the TM. Is it a Ciclon or an El Rey?

    I think 38 lbs is the standard for UPS oversize packages. At least that is what they rip you for.

    Mine will be here tomorrow. Could have picked it up Monday but work intervened. I'll post a thread up.

    It is an El Rey. I figured since all the kewl kids are riding those ghey 650B bikes that if I added another 29er to the stable, my average wheelsize would in fact be that of the 650B!

    thanks....though I would honestly not call it a blinged out ride in that many/most of the parts are X9/XT level which is what I want......generic juicy brakes, etc...Couple parts I guess are bling I guess like the wheels but frankly, on a 29er in particular, I9s are FAR more than nice to look at....the extra stiffness (IMHO) is very welcomed and has a tangible benefit.

    Fo, you better take pics of whatever is in that box. Let us know how it rides if you ever do get a chance to do something silly like that.

    Dude, Fo is way more serious than that. He almost always takes a bike to the park where his kids play. Sometimes he even races the other kids on their tiny bikes. Sometimes, he wins. See, he ain't no pushover.

    29 lbs for a complete El Rey, 5 lbs for a bike box, 1 lb for packing material, and 3 scoops of elephant dung at approx. 1 lb per scoop.

    Don't insult the build with the "Shitmano" reference of 'XT'. There isn't a single Shitmano part on that Rey you punk!

    I'd think the '08 F29 w/DT Swiss QR 9mm front axle, custom ordered I9 Enduros w/Flow rims, PUSH Factory Tunes RP2-3, and the Moots Ti seatpost give it some 'bling'.

    YES! Way to give up the whole secret of what we shipped in the box.

    You actually have it wrong. UGI implicitly stands for "upgrade". How can a new 29er FS be an "upgrade" when i dont have one to "upgrade"? As such, this is definitely NOT UGI, but rather, a necessity and really does not count towards my allowance from the UGI funds.
