Bike Porn
« on: October 05, 2008, 11:13:20 AM »
Just got my new frame yesterday, and here she is.  Here are a few parts I plan on putting on as well.  The saddle is a WTB Rocket V.  I have some new cranks on order (Race Face Deus), and a Fox F29 coming in, and I am converting my I9s to 29er wheels.  All that leaves is handle bars, brakes, and stem.

Yep it will be my first 29er and my first SS in one shot.  I can't wait to get it together and out on the trails.

You're going to love it.  They put something in the rubber for 29" tires that's like crack.  Once you try it once, you're hooked and its all you think about!

And SS?  I also love it.  You may have a tougher time at first until you build your legs up, but once you know your trouble spots, there's no better feeling than standing up and mashing for that climb you know is around the corner, and your legs are burning at the top of the climb.

Its hard to explain, its just you and your legs against the world.  Make it and you feel like God.  Don't make it and know what you need to work on.

Anyone want to help me put this beast together? You provide the tools and I will provide the beer.  I have a work stand and a standard tool kit, I just don't have a headset press, or chain whip BB tool you know the good stuff.  I will be out of town for a few days but I want to have this thng running by the 18th so I can ride.  Any takers??

I thought you had the tool for the headset?  I was just about to ask you if I can come over so you can help me drive my CK into my new frame.  Do you have the contraptions on that link and used them successfully?
