parts are in!

This time of year rocks. Especially this year cause the weather has allowed us crazy bike minded people to do what we do in relative comfort...so far. Anyway, This post isn't about weather...it's about preparations for the 2007 ultra mtb series and building a race bike.
All the parts are in my treasure chest here to build up a pretty stout racer. Just waiting on Christopher to put the finishing touches on my ride. The frame went in for repair a few weeks back and Christopher has gone above and beyond fixing her up. I was in the shop the other night having a cpl adult beverages with the craftsman and he thought it might be a good idea to weld some more stainless steel uniqueness into my frame. I'm stoked to see the final product. Should be done this week then off to the painter for a couple more weeks. This might be good because the snow will certainly fall by that time I take delivery and won't be able to beat her up too bad before the first race!

Will you miss riding the first race on a non-painted frame ??? going with red ?? are you going with new wheelset ? :)

looking down at my rusting top tube durring last year's kick-off didn't inspire me to go any faster...maybe deep glossy red will help.

as for our mysterious friend...call western cycle and ask where you can find Jeff...I have told you what I know. Best regards.
