    Good job! New Goblin - Don't fear the transit!

    Just wanted to post a quick message to allay fears some of you might have about ordering a bike online. My Goblin arrived today in MD (from CA) via FedEx in great shape. No damage to the box and the only thing that seemed dinged a bit was the bottom of the seat post... that's hidden inside the frame anyway.

    It went together quickly and without issue and so far (I haven't yet had time to ride) the only adjustment I had to make was the FD high limit.

    I hope to bed the pads tomorrow morning and then I'll decide whether it's smart to drive 35m to my favorite trail or not.

    I do need to take some more time to attempt getting the Reba sag correct. I weigh 225lbs so the fork said I should put in 135psi+. The bike barely sags though. I didn't, however, run the dampening knob back and forth... forgot that step. Will need to go through it all again.

    I took some high resolution photos of the bike too. If any of you want to see better (16mpx) images, let me know and I'll be sure to take some more.

    I'll second this.

    CA to east coast (MD also) with 1 small puncture in box, no damage to bike.

    Iso - where in MD? I haven't seen another airborne here yet, I'm in Gburg.

    I'm in Odenton... Pretty much in the middle of Annapolis, Baltimore and DC.
