Got the email last night that my frame has shipped.  Since then I've been stuck looking at different parts, comparing prices on various sites... this is going to be a long haul to get this thing ride ready.  I ALREADY can't wait.

I'm SUPER psyched because I must be getting some sort of surprise with the frame...

package weight of 13.9lbs!!!

They list the medium frame at 3.7 lbs - Mine is a large... doubt that could account for all that weight?

Side note....

I'm kinda thinking that if I'm even considering going rigid, I should start rigid to give it a fair shake?  My thought is, if I get a sweet suspension fork up front I might not ever want to take it off?


  1. If it's affordability your after, that's an easy answer. I wonder sometimes what a front fork is like and then I say hell with it, I love me some rigid! Don't be afraid of steel

    1. Yeah, I'm kinda thinking that rigid will be a good starting point at least. And it will be so much easier to get used to rigid down here - so many buttery smooth trails (at least for the most part)!
