    Pretty hot f&f, but the build kit looks like it's the f&f's equal. Be sure to post a pic of the completed build. And, hey, it's cold and snowy here in Montana right now, why're you teasing us with this now? No snow on your side of the Skalkaho? Jeez.

    Nice wheel set

    What does that wheel set weigh? I am not a big fan of Aluminum frames, but yours looks very very nice, especially the way he made the stays from a single bent tube. Slick

    Jeez......got snow ? Plenty on this side, more than i've seen in years. And it's refreshingly welcome. You should come on over for a pugs ride some time, and speaking of Skalkaho...we've been hitting that on the regular.



    And when it's really too cold and snowy to ride, what better way to spend a day than building up a hot bike.

    the Dt 240SS hubs laced to VXC rims with supercomps came out to 1725g...no rotors or cogs yet.

    Are you renting Pugslys? I'd love to rally a few guys and come over from Anaconda for a ride. When it's cold and snowy you could always come this way for some world-class Nordic skiing at Mt. Haggin Ski Area or some incredible in-bounds skiing or snowboarding at Discovery Basin .

    the snow,

    down low,

    she go.

    dry in the valley, still snowy up high. Lost Trail & Snowbowl both have a good base depth for this time of year.

    eye's a-goin' for a ride today, yup!
