    The worst part about using the UPS online checker is waiting for the package when you KNOW it is out for delivery . . .

    yes...but the good part is...when you're OLD, and your cardiovascular system can no longer handle any stess, shock or surprise...you can be aware of the progress, and not suffer a heart attack when brown santa comes to your door unexpectedly!

    Happy BD

    44, yer just a baby, cc!

    Nice present to yourself - looking forward to the pics of it built up.

    I should be getting the remainder of my build for the El Mariachi 29er singlespeed today, so although it isn't literally mine you can cue the Beatles:

    Da da da da DA DA da da, chick-a chick-a chick-a chick-a...
    They say it's your birthday...
    It's my birthday too, yea!
    They say it's your birthday
    We're gonna have a good time
    I'm glad it's your birthday
    Happy birthday to you!
    {Principal Skinner} Hmm. Whoever did this is in very deep trouble.
    {Martin} And a sloppy speller too. The preferred spelling of 'wiener' is w - i - e - n - e - r, although 'e - i' is an acceptable ethnic variant.

    oh come on, cc...it wouldn't be the turner forum if we didn't give you a little $hit! if all of a sudden we were nice to you, you might think that we were mad at you. we can't have that...especially on your b-day!

    as for shiz nizzle...he asks for all the crap he gets...and i think it's because he likes it!

    brown santa's takin laxitives....

    cuz he just left all this shyt on my doorstep!

    shimano xt 970 cranks
    sram pc971 chain
    sram x 9 r der
    sram x 9 shifters
    sram x gen f der
    sram pg 980 cassette
    fsa fr 200 s/post
    velo turner fr logo saddle
    fsa orbit extreme h/set
    fsa gravity 70mm x 6 deg 31.8 stem
    fsa xc 280 31.8 h/bar
    odi ruffian lock on grips
    magura louise bat brakes
    magura steel 6" & 7" rotors ("licensed by galfer"? curious)
    fox float 36 rc2 160mm fork
    wtb speed disc trail wheelset
    maxxis advantage 2.4 kevlar bead tires

    this will not be the final spec on ted. i have a box of bits that will replace a few of these demo items, add some performance, give it a tad bit of style and lighten the thing up. rr asked if i would rebuild the SPaaNB with this stuff untill the new frame showed. well i dunno. i gotta sell the damn thing so i can buy the rfx in the 1st place so i gotta ask myself if its worth the trouble. thats a stupid question isnt it? im sure i will pal. this also gives me a few weeks of testin out a few bits before the snows hit town. what i dont use will go on the old rfxc, be sold individually or go in the spares boxes.

    thanx all for the thoughts and happy friggin bday to all you scorpios!

    how do ya like my red picnic table?? sorry, no couch and its only parts anyway.

    a super huge mega giant thanx to dt and jarett at turner for all the help. i couldnt be more serious when i say this could never have happened at this time without them. no way in hell. and thanx to cheese and dt for puttin on the THC, the event that gave me insperation for this build. let us not forget the folks who showed up at thc for all the good times and made it what it was. and most of all to candycorn for buttin up with yet another bike build and the costs that go along with it. yer a true gem born from the love of the earth sweety.

    New Turner format?

    CC brings in the red picnic table! I'm sure that'll past muster with the homers too...you might as well take that bike off the picnic table too once she's built and post it in the 3 foot-to-flat thread.

    Happy birthday, dude. That's one heckuva birthday gift. Congrats!

    Did you you realise that those grips in the photos are on the wrong way round? (Waffle goes to the outside of the bar).
