Hell yeah!!!!!  Welcome to the Vassago owners club.....  Bikes are just f'ing Kool.. Ride it like the Devil! ... Having said that, I am dropping my rigid fork for long rides/races since my old broken wrists were complaining.  I'll slap it back on when doing shorter (2-3 hrs) FUN rides :-) ...  My Vassago is enjoying 1x9 gears now-adays ... SS'ing on the RedLine Flight....
 
Great looking bike broda...

Thanks!
Since that picture was taken I shortened the front brake cable and secured it properly.  After I get a few miles in I'll adjust the stem position and find the right place then cut the fork to a more appropriate length.  The assembly went together just fine with no issues.  The "ride around the yard" test went perfect.  :)  I'm not selling my squishy 29 FSR though, it's nice to have both in the stable.
