    hey all! Im super stoked because i finally got my Jabberwocky built last night. It come in at 24.5 pounds with fairly pedestrian build, no real bling unless you count the Salsa seat post clamp.

    Build as follows.

    fork-Odis
    wheelset-Surly hubs with Semi disc's and a 19tooth eno
    tires-rampages
    Crank is a XT with an XTR bottom bracket
    Chain ring - cheap origin 8 till i order my ISAR ring anodized pink!
    chain-sram 950
    Stem-90mm FSA OS 190
    Bars-Carnegies
    grips-oury's and damn are these things bright!
    brakes-BB7's with Jagwire rip cords and SD7's
    seatpost-salsa shaft!
    seat-specialized alias bought on discount looking for a new saddle.

    Looks like a blast. The pink bits suit it.
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    So let me get this straight. You have time to upload pics of your bike, but you can't upload the pics of my sweet down hill run?

    Nice bike though. Dropped my ass on all the hills today.

    i got an epic in today and two shorter rides yesterday. one of them up a local hill called ossipee mountain its not very tall but its got a lot of climbing for the area. but this bike climbs like it is a machine its flipping amazing.
    and the bars are very nice too once i got the angle right and the height pretty much dialed they are amazing they handle like a dream the best bars i have ever used and will be using them on all my bikes from now on. they are very comfortable even after 29 miles in the saddle in some muddy conditions.

    I tried the bars briefly. They are very comfortable, but they send shocks through my arms when I crouch down to bunny hop. I also feel like they are going to swing around, and stab me in the leg (I doubt this will actually happen.) Nick loves them though.

    His post is a 410mm. It's aluminum, and it flexes like crazy.
