    I had some white hubs from an old bike that I had rebuilt as 29ers. I'll put those on tonight and post another set of pics

    The white hubs will match the white packing cardboard and foam perfectly!

    Just got my new FLY TI 29er

    UPS dropped it off yesterday and it took me about an hour to get it put together.

    This bike is simply a beautiful work of art. I got my first mountain bike (diamond back accent) in 1986 and have had upgraded many times. This is hands down the finest bike I've had.

    After I got everything dialed in, I set record times at my local single track. That would be my hallway from the kitchen to the master bedroom. I live in MN and there is 3 feet of snow outside.

    Wow, now I feel like a slacker. I managed to get the bike out of the box last night and the rotor installed on the front wheel. Life keeps getting in the way of building the bike. I'm swapping out the factory crank for a SRAM x9, that is the goal for tonight.

    Where in MN do you live, You So Powafo? And is that the 15.5"? Looks sweet! I'm in MN, too (south metro), and would love to check out your bike sometime if you were in the neighborhood. I've got an aging Litespeed that I've been thinking about replacing with a ti 29er.

    I live in Eagan, about 1.5 miles east of Lebannon Hills. You are correct, it's a 15.5 inch frame. I'd totally be fine with someone coming to check it out, but I am reserving the virgin outdoor ride for myself. Don't know when that's going to happen.

    I got mine when I lived in Plymouth in November '09 and I only managed to ride it once on the dirt out of 30 rides over the winter on snow. I'd recommend swapping tires to something knobbier if you plan on snow riding, and follow the pugsley tracks. The frame allows clearance for 2.5 tires.

    I actually find the winter riding better there where you have frozen ground and don't have to deal with mud and slop as I do here in Nor Cal.

    The rest of the year it's a different story.

    It's a great bike. Enjoy!

    thanks!

    xlmrider33: looking at your Porsche in the background, I figure you can afford almost any bike... even "branded" Ti bikes... and yet you chose a Moto. That's cool in my book.

    I hope you give more feedback and pictures of your ride.

    I thought the exact same thing as Xtyling above. I've been dreaming about my used 911 since I was a wee lad of single digits. 43 and I have yet to achieve that dream.

    I assume that 911 owners are buying Serotta, Seven, Vanilla, Moots, etc.

    I guess no one gets wealthy by wasting money!

    Thanks guys. Dad always said, A fruggle man buys twice. Buy value and you have it as long as you want, buy junk and you have it as long as they want.

    So, my 210,000+ mile Volvo Turbos are a good investment? They keep ticking, but don't have that Stuttgart feel.... :-)

    No issues with the seatpost, and for that matter no issues with the bike. I've put nearly 1,000 miles on it, include two 60 mile races and have no complaints about the bike at all.
