    Smile New VF2 Finally ready to roll.

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/

    I am a common lurker in the forums and dont post much but figured I would throw up the VF2 I just built up. Sorry about just having the link but every time I hit the upload button to put up the pics my computer would freeze. 10 minutes trying to figure out why was enough so I just threw up the link...... Still waiting on new pedals to arrive. I am also still stuck using the rims from my EVO on the bike but as long as it is rolling at the moment I am ecstatic. After I get my student loan payments in check (if ever) I should be able to get some new rims for it. Only took it out for a short ride so far ( snow just melted and its still a horrible mess out here) but I came home smiling huge. I cant wait to take it out for a full day of riding to really put it through its paces. Will try to get a weight on it soon as well, I know my rim and tire combo is going to put a penalty on that for the time being.
    Specs:
    Halo Freedom Rims (to be swapped out soon for a more XC rim)
    Hope Pro II hubs
    WTB Mutano Raptor tires
    Revelation 426 fork
    Cane Creek 110 headset
    Hope XC stem
    Sram XO shifters
    Sram XO rear der.
    Sram 990 cassette
    Sram 991 Hollowpin chain
    XTR crankset
    XTR front der.
    Avid BB7 brakes (are going to take some getting used to)
    Avid SL levers
    Thomson post
    WTB Rocket V saddle
    Salsa skewers

    Thanks Nels, saved me a bit of frustration this morning as I was going to try again before work. I am sure my computer has figured out my breaking point by now and loves to push me just to the brink of total frustrated rage, especially on what should be simple tasks. Anyhow, it was much appreciated. I am sure you saved an item or two from getting hurled across the room this morning.
