    Not Too Long

    I was told at Interbike that the '06 Moments would be ready by the end of March. I am definately not a reliable source, thats just what I was told. As for the Truth, no idea.

    Doesn't Competative Cyclist and The Path have the Truth listed on their websites? Or would one have to wait if they ordered one?

    I wonder if the backlog on Epiphanies is going to affect that. How do I know there's a backlog..? Hopefully I'll be able to tell the Paul Harvey bit soon.

    UP Dude, I just got the UP part after looking at your profile. So you're a yooper, eh? I was a troll for a few years (that's what they were calling people who lived below the bridge back then anyway). I had a mountain bike, but never took it to the UP when I came up to visit. I bet there's some pretty riding there in the summer and fall.
    {Principal Skinner} Hmm. Whoever did this is in very deep trouble.
    {Martin} And a sloppy speller too. The preferred spelling of 'wiener' is w - i - e - n - e - r, although 'e - i' is an acceptable ethnic variant.

    Maybe they have not sold out of their 05 inventory and have to move that first. Just a thought. They certainly won't be building up any 06s until they have gotten rid of the 05s. So, maybe they still have 05s sitting around.

    So...what color did you order? Personal use or for the wife or kids? Did you see the 24.5lb builds on that frame. Sick!
    Nothing to see here.

    All in due time, my little jaundiced smurf, all in due time. The wheels are built, though.

    Theoretically speaking if I built one it wouldn't be quite that light, but quite light nonetheless.

    BTWB - you're gonna have a pretty sick quiver.

    I'd like to see some Epiphanys in a heavier build, though, too. This bike is beggin' for a Pike and some 2.35s, maybe a DHX or Avy. It only has 3/4 less travel than a Moment! I understand the frame is different, but geez, the Epiphany is a trail monster waiting to be unleashed.

    The trolls are still trolls, and we still keep a watchful eye on them when they come North.
    The riding up here is probably some of the best you'll find in the Midwest. Well, at least its not your normal flat, smooth Midwest riding. We have hills, rocks, roots and "real" technical trails. We like to make the analogy that the Keweenaw (the northern-most point of the UP) is just like BC, except with 600 foot hills instead of 6000 foot hills. I should say that the western UP is like that, the Eastern UP kinda sucks, more like the rest of the Midwest. If you ever get the chance to come back this way, make a point to ride in Copper Harbor. Its the furthest north you can go in da' UP (Isle Royale aside), but it is well worth the trip. Otherwise, Houghton and Marquette are your two other hot spots.

    Ride On!

    I remember Copper Harbor. On the drive up, I was thinking "I've got to buy a Miata and come back and drive this road. I bought the Miata, I've just never gone back. Maybe some day.

    Small World. I went to school at Michigan Tech. Didn't have a bike then. Few of us go back and rie in the UP. We do Bruno's run and a few other trails.

    Way OT.

    There's nothing finer than taking the ferry out to Grand Isle and taking your time poking aroung the island, camping on the beach at night by yourself with Lake Superior to the front and hundred foot cliffs behind you. Da UP is great.

    Yep just did that last summer. Grand Isle is such a few loop. Nothing technical but spectacular views.
