    And now the wait....



    Teresa got it out before they shut down for the holidays. The level of Ventana CS is always top notch!

    Robb I mustn't have been paying attention lately... what's in the box??

    10lbs.. either the packaging is light or that's a reasonably light complete frame...

    I showed Sherwood this...



    And he informed me that I need something with bigger tubes. I just specified that it had to be matte black!

    so is this a compliment to stable or replacement?

    Part of the deal was I had to ship the Ciclon back...so all of the parts on the Ciclon are transferring over. Works out nicely because I won't really have a need for another 5 or 6" bike.

    But it look soooooooooo good hanging on the wall! Like a trophy.

    I was going to guess 'moto but someone already did. Wow, can't wait to see it!

    And the sucky thing is, even tho the box only weighs 10, UPS still charges for 35 I could have picked it up for you; I'm only 90 minutes away from V.

    There will be plenty of pics to follow. I haven't seen any pictures of one in matte black yet on mtbr and I don't know of any in ga. I am pretty stoked about this one. Should match well with ALL of my friends 6" bikes being RFX's.

    I just wish that the holiday schedule didn't delay UPS so much this time of year!

    Here are all of the parts....

    Teresa made us track down the UPS guy on our way to our Xmas lunch. She wanted to make sure it got out before we closed. Now is that customer service or what.

    He is going to get a call from DT soon if he keeps dropping the Spot with the 36 on it anyways...

    Just a FYI...the Specialized Resolutions will not be making the switch over. The tires worked great for about 2 rides...once they start wearing (even just a little bit)...all traction is gone. I will be very happy to have the Betty's back on.

    Thanks cris....

    I am sure there will be a couple of pictures involved. In the meantime...I got in a TOUGH 20 miles in today at Rich Mtn. w/a fellow Ventana owner. I'll get some pictures posted up later.

    The Lyrik coil will match even better with the moto anyway ! I think mine might be a creaker though and may have to send it back to RS this winter ! TIG.

    It will match the TM frame much better. I am going to send it to Darren once he gives the ok on Lyriks too!
