    I'm joining Club Vulture! (x-post SS)

    As I mentioned in a recent post, I need to dedicate my KM to commuting duty and get a separate rig for MTBing. Also, it's time to switch to get a suspension fork.

    I love the KM's handling, but I'm getting tired of the horizontal dropouts with disc brakes (gotta go EBB), would like a slightly higher BB and wouldn't mind losing a little weight. Rig would be an option, but I don't think the geometry's going to be right for me. So custom it is. And why not keep my business in Oregon and go with Vulture? I left a message today to kick things off.

    I'll probably stay pretty close to my current geometry, though with a few minor changes. I haven't decided on the paint job yet, but I've got several ideas. I promise it will be something befitting my moniker. More details to come.

    Can't wait.
