    My first SS is on the road

    I was a little late in getting on the Superfly SS bandwagon, but my LBS did some begging for me and Fisher gave up a Large frame - no fork. So - it is not ridiculite by any means, over 21 pounds with my big pedals, but it flies like I never knew SS could, and everything feels right for my size and skills . After 6 rides, 3 on dirt, I will not go without an SS again.

    19" Superfly SS frame
    Fox F29 100 RLC, G2 offset, spaced to 80 mm
    Cane Creek 110 headset (need another red spacer, though)
    Truvativ Noir 1.1 32 T crank with GXP Team BB
    Surley 20 T cog, with an 18T in reserve
    Elixer R brakes, 160 rotors
    Thompson Elite 410 mm offset post (I wanted it down in there)
    2008 Superfly Bontrager Saddle
    12 degree Bontrager Big Sweep bar on 7 degree, 105 mm Race X Lite stem
    2008 RXL wheels, XDX tubeless rear, ACX front, (waiting for the 29-3 front)
    M647 SPD pedals

    Next stop - if I feel the need to get lighter and sportier, will maybe try the G2 Switchblade. Not a priority right now, though.

    The pedals and the bash-guard confuse me.

    nice. i think an expensive bike needs a better chain than pc-48's.
    everything sucks but my vacuum cleaner.

    Yup, my LBS gives me crap about 'em too.

    I just have an easier time finding the clips in the later hours of a ride.

    I'll try some lighter SPDs.

    very nice! What grips are those? They look super squishy and thick. I think I would like a pair (the bike too!)

    Not too squishy at all. Made by Bonty. The ESIs are squishy.

    Bontrager foam Race X Lites - I use 'em on all my bikes. Like Padre said, not super squishy - just right for me. Ten bucks a pair.

    Bash-guard came with crankset - we'll see if I need it. Pedals are just what I trust.

    Bike will get lighter if I become a race animal on it.

    GT has reported they will make a Superfly for 2010 that will go both ways

    However, I am truly glad to get the one with the track ends.

    So will it come with sliders in '10? I'd rather have track ends. How did you get thus frame?

    A few of the framesets were made available to some Fisher dealeres. In my case, all they had left was the frame - had to find my own fork. It was worth it in any case - amazing bike.
