    Same here. I have the bike picked out, but I'm missing several parts to complete the build - so the frame is sitting bare until I find the final parts. A week before Keyesville I'll likely throw on the parts that I have plus whatever I happen to find to "make it work." With any luck the "correct" components will materialize (at a reasonable price) sometime in the next six months.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Hey Eric, are you offering it to him for free?

    Or something you are trying to Sell on the forum w/out paying for a Classified?

    You are always getting your panties wet over others' 'for sale' implications...yet you do it yourself. punk

    There's a difference between offering to help a buddy and making new threads to hock goods and fish for buyers. I'm sending him the wheels, no money has exchanged hands.

    You feel better now. Punk.

    Oh so you are or you are not selling the wheels? A Classified Ad costs $2.

    btw, the market value on the frameset was the price that it went for twice.....duh

    Actually, you are trying to sell the wheels. Take a look at page 9 to see how you react when someone else does exactly what you do, drama queen. Official Specialized Picture Thread

    I believe you are wrong based on my experience w/ Rumpfy here. When he says he is giving something, that's what he is doing.

    This is already ugly enough so i will refrain from saying anything else.

    Are you giving them away for FREE or not?

    If not then you are selling them and you need to buy a Classified Ad for $2. Simple as that.

    I think the big difference here is that Eric has given away literally hundreds of dollars worth of parts for free. Trying to imply that he is using the forum for personal gain just doesn't hold up. So have I for that matter. I don't know about Eric but I always just laugh it off when someone on these forums tries to imply that I am greedy. Not to mention that Eric has sold alot of stuff here and each time he has paid his 2 bucks for the classifieds.

    Confirmed, no exchange of money on this deal. A fellow bro deal passed along. Pay it forward mind you. If Eric wanted to sell these wheels for a gain, I think he could have quite easily whichever way he would have chosen. Peace.

    Progress being made!!

    Silver CK headset installed. XT Wheelset installed. WCS Ritchey Ti Vector onboard... XT thumbies, FD and RD, check. UN71 BB and Logic cranks ready to go! Pending 987 brakes installation with Ritchey levers. NEW ZMax tires on the way.

    Only issue so far is I should have installed a headset with a lower stack height. The CK left no room for the Ritchey hanger. Which explains why there was an incorrect stem (Controltech w/ integrated hanger) included when I received the bike. Looks like the Ritchey stem planned for this bike will get sidelined for now and the Controltech will get used until something better comes my way. Overall, this bike is coming together quite nicely. Should be a rider in the next few weeks!!!

    My exact thoughts!

    The CK worked with about 4 1/2 turns. Specs say 4 minimum.

    Rumpfy, yours looks worse than mine!

    Sweet, Ben. That looks great. After I got my Ritchey and Salsa, I sold off all my Bridgestones.
