    Finally ordered new Strong HT frame.

    Now i just need to wait. I am getting giddy like a little kid waiting for Carl to build my new Steel HT. I was going to go Ti, but i decided to just do the custom steel and call it a day.. Waiting is the hardest part.

    Carl built my road bike a few years ago and it rides amazing and fits perfect.So i couldn't wait for it to be time for a new mtn bike. It should be here in 12 weeks or so. It is winter time anyways so it will work out and i still have my other mtn bike to ride anyways. As soon as it arrives i will post picss.

    2 more months and it should be here. It is serving as my late x-mas present to myself.

    You will not be dissapointed. Carl is one of the best builders in the business.

    I have two wonderful steel Strong frames. Carl is a pleasure to work with, and his craftmanship is superp!

    Espen - I know what you mean about not being disappointed. Carl built me a steel road frame a few years ago, and i couldn't wait to order my new mtn frame. It just is tough to hold out and wait..

    One more. This color is magic, but it's hard to take good picture of it.

    well i talked with carl again yesterday and settled on the frame specs. 71deg head tube, 74deg seat tube, 11" bb height, 23" tt length, true temper OX Platnium TT and DT, Colombus Life rear triangle. I should have the blue prints in a week or so.

    Went a little bit lower on the BB than my current bike and tad longer on the TT than my current bike. I will run a slightly shorter stem to make up the difference in the TT length. This should make it a little more stable.
