Got the 1st 25% built before I realized I forgot to take "Before" pictures. Here is what it looks like w/ headset, fork, stem, bars, and wheels mostly put together:

Yeah, Thanks again TTT! While I am at it Thanks goes out to the following:
 
jdk -Joe for the Brand new race face deus headset
 
Pro edge biker - Carlos for the great deal on the MZ Comp fork w/ front brake adapter
 
Jmdeluca - Jim for the chain, crankset, and skewers
 
Jonesy - paul for the new SLX shifters and rear derailuer
 
Controlled Chaos- Chris for the seat, tools , and time helping putting this together, even though it has not happened yet.
 
looks like i may need to trim the seat post for spencer since it is a 15" frame and the post has about 2" too high for him. His current bike is a 13" frame with his seat about 5" high.. Hopefully we will have finished product pictures tomorrow..

So the rumours of Chris's untimely demise were grossly overstated?

Dude. I would have let you borrow a bike stand. No sense risking your marriage by building it in the living room.

You would've charged an hourly rate for the use of one of your stands.  ;)
