    Awfully quiet for a Monday am.......

    So.....here is what I started this weekend..........my 69'r project is "conceived", off and running. The devil is in the details as my jig is a pain in the a$$ to set up and having two different wheel sizes makes it all that much worse. But, I think I finally have it dialed in and will start cutting the tubing for the front triangle this week. (ST 72, HT 70) Basically it will be the same bike that I broke at ORAMM (RIP) only better in that it will have the big 29" wheel feel up front and the familiar 26" wheel in the back......so that is all for now......Ya'll go back to work.

    Joe at Primus Mootry is building me a 69er right now. I've owned a trek one for 3 years, and i'm just between sizes. Figured it was about time I had 1 that really fit. I've owned several 26 and 29 bikes and think the 69er really is the best of both worlds. You're going to love that thing!

    I'm gonna give gears another "try", Curtis Creek made me see things from a different light (a slow death upwards)............but it seems I can't get away from fixed (I know I'm ruined), this build will have a horizontal drop out so I can make it a SS if the gears don't work out for my bike-centricity.
