    Get a load of my grey friends! (28.9)

    Ok, so one of em has been around for 11 years. The other, 2 days!
    I'm on my way back from Breckenridge yesterday, and the bike shop calls. "Its ready!" So, I whip a quick u-turn and head to the shop. After a run down of all the bells n whistles, I head to the hacienda to change and take her for a spin!
    Tired snowboarding legs and all, I go out for a jaunt! WOW!!! Everything I had expected. Nimble, strong, quick, its all there! Well, here she is. I know...VERY strange color, right?

    Thomson Elite X4 stem
    Race Face NEXT SL carbon bars
    Thomson Elite seatpost
    Chumba saddle
    Crank Bros Candy SL's

    Nice rig, Sean.

    Now swap those tires for Schwalbe Fat Albert/Albert or Big Betty/Fat Albert combos and you'll be good to go.

    I was curious because I had mine built in CO. also and it appears your front derailleur cable is routed quite differently than mine is. Just wondered if the same shop did both? My cable is on the other side of the seat tube, almost hidden..
