    Nice bike, is that a small or medium? The Ano Gray is the perfect finish. :thumbsup:

    Twinsies! Yours is already built, though. Mine's still in progress.

    Seriously, I've had mine for over a week and all I've managed to do is get the BB and FD mounted!

    Judging by your avatar I'm guessing we have the same reasons for delay. Cute kid but ain't it hard to get anything done?

    Ya, she's a year old. Too damn cute! Definitely taxing my bike time though. I have to wait until she goes to bed, which means night skiing and probably a lot of night riding this summer.

    Oh yeah, because I bought the XCL, my wife wanted something of equivalent value for her. Fortunately, I have the best wife in the world...she wanted a new 50" plasma TV and surround sound system! So, I've spent a lot of time getting that all setup. :D

    I have 5 year old twins and a 1 1/2 year old. When the twins were born, I did not ride for 2 years. I was so exhausted, just the thought of pedaling up a mountain on a bike was enough to make me almost puke. But they're bigger now and it's all good.

    The stem is long...it's getting switched out with a shorter one, but the big ring is staying...not because it's going to get used a lot, but because it's pretty and looks cool with the cranks!

    You can install a nice bashring and there are many colors available... :ihih:

    That bike would look killer with a transparent bashring. My choice would be black, but that can be kind of "me too" for some people.

    White is fashion now, but a bashguard will get scratched and bruised and white will look old and crappy... not to mention grease sticks ugly to white.
