    ... and if we just ... Enough pondering...finally some action!

    Well, Santa was very good to me and surprised me with a new Reba SL and a WTB wheel so I could stop thinking about 69'ing my Raleigh and actually do it.
    I haven't has a chance to do a full ride on my favorite loop, but I immediately noticed the change in the fore/aft balance of the bike. I can wheelie much easier (man I can almost manual!), I sit more upright, and It rolls over stuff really well. I don't know how to describe it, but I feel more in control. I am very excited. I am now wanting to upgrade the stock Fox Float R shock and put on a RockShox MC3.3 or Ario 2.2 with a remote lockout. I will post a more thorough post ride report later.

    Sign me,

    No longer just a Lurker...

    If you can still find a MC 3.3 - it makes a great platform shock. I'm running one on my Lithium.

    I checked out your web album. I am a little worried about the shock clearance on the rocker arm. Your Lithium seems to have a little more. How did you like the Exiwolf on your rear?
