    Very nice!!

    I'm waiting on one more part before I start posting pictures of mine.

    How you liking that saddle? I bought one, but it wasn't compatible with my "interface".. at all!

    Lotta mods there.

    In hindsight, would you have rather opted for the SL or Ti version instead?

    I ask because I have the SL and am modding a bunch too. I wonder if I shouldn't have opted for the Ti after all is said and done.

    Or maybe, modding is INEVITABLE, regardless of the model...

    I do prefer the Pro's Charcoal Gray color (over the SL) and the White Reba fork certainly makes the Moto unique (vs all the black forks).

    Good job on your build!

    I bought the Pro also, (same color).... In hindsight, I would have liked to have saved a couple hundred more for the SL, but I imagine I would have found stuff to upgrade anyway!

    Yeah, I'm obsessing over upgrading to the fly team ti 29er frame now. That should come this fall. I'm glad I did it the way I did though, b/c I didn't know if I'd like the 29er thing or not when I got into it.

    I like the saddle. It does it my butt a bit the next day, but not at all while riding. It is super light too. I mean, there is nothing too it. I can't stand saddles with bulk.

    Thanks for the compliments. Feel free to show your pics. I'd love to see what others have done.
