    Juiced!

    Well, finally got my fork in, so now I was able to build it up. I am really digging this thing so far. Can't wait till I can take it on the trail, but after riding around and running over anything I could find, I was pleased with the big wheels.

    So, now I get to dial everything in and put on all the finishing touches. I will probably lower the stem under some spacer. I want to get rid of the fugly QR seat collar I had to steal off another bike. That FSA Orbit Extreme headset really sticks out on the thin steel head tube. It looks kinda cool I think.

    Weighs 29lbs even exactly as you see it. I am hoping the bigger wheels boost my technical terrain confidence enough to put my lighter Candy SL pedals back on. With those and a little lighter wheelset, I can see this thing dropping to 28 lbs.

    It only rubs on the floodgate side. The air side barely clears. I will eventually look into a different headset to space the frame up a bit, but for now I will put a patch of 3M protective film on the bottom of the downtube.

    I like the bent top tube, let's you have a longer seat tube. Nice ride.
