    First pics of my new S-Works 29er SS...

    Okay, so this is pure narcissism, but what the hell: Just picked it up tonight, and hope to ride Saturday.

    The pedals and rotors will be changed and the bike should weigh about 20 lbs. 3 oz. with the new parts. The Magura SL Mags feel like no other brake I've used--incredible lever feel and modulation. I'm a Stan's fan and the white rims rock the bike. Red chain? Hells yeah!

    Congrats! Now ride the wheels off it.
    The only regrets in life, are the risks you didn't take.

    no way...i am in the middle of a mid-life crisis and that really sounds like something an "old" person would say

    honestly though, I am the first one to jump on the carbon-bashing bandwagon but that bike is rad and i have a feeling my next bike (after this month's bike) will be carbon

    That does look nice.

    Is there a reason you ride the big platform pedals? Maybe without a stiff-soled shoe they make a big difference?

    Ride the wheels off it, after you ditch that chain. Sweet ride!

    Those pedals will go on my FSR--I actually do like a little support underfoot. However, I'll be putting the smaller, lighter Candy Tis on this thing when they arrive.

    I plan to ride the wheels off it, and the chain (my riding buddies are already making fun of the red chain!).

    Thanks for everyone's comments. This is a pleasant forum.

    Sick bike. I hope the chain lasts. Had bad issues with color matching chains (KM?) snapping on me.

    Very mentally enthusing graphical representation of a most ideal off-road human powered vehicle!

    Now please, I beg of you to operate this vehicle until said circular support mechanisms are physically worn down due to an overabundance of friction!

    If the looks translate directly into riding qualities, you're in for some serious fun...

    Hard to say about the weight. I did think it would be under 20 lbs., and it still might be, but the big wheels and 2.2 tires are fairly heavy. The white rims look killer, but add weight--worth it to me. I could change the seatpost to aluminum, but I hope the carbon will give somewhat better ride quality. My new rotors will be lighter, and I'm shooting my wad on light pedals, but overall, who can complain about suspended, carbon, 29er mountain bike!

    That will also decrease the weight.

    I'm guessing you wouldn't even dream of throwing a leg over that bike without being fully ensconced in a spanking new S-Works kit.

    Indeed. Probably 28-50 grams or so. And I'll make sure to urinate, vomit, and defecate prior to each ride to maximize weight savings.

    All the more reason to keep the chain!
