    Well, almost. I will eventually replace the bars, stem, and cranks but I had this stuff laying around and just used it. I've only pedaled it around the block, but it feels huge. I'm really stoked to take it out. This is the first XC bike I have ever owned, so I don't really know what to expect, but I am totally into it. We'll see how it goes. Wish me luck!

    Sickness. I took mine out today and I'm getting more and more stoked about it every ride.

    Yeah, for now. I have a single speed conversion for it, but I thought I'd rock it like this for a while.

    The Ridemonkey Test Dillinger is done finally as well - just in time for 8 inches of snow in CT.

    I will have pics up shortly though. Set up is Single Speed 32:18 with a 100mm Rebal SL in front, American Classic Wheels, SDG I-Beam seatpost with Belair Saddle, FSA Stem and bar combo, Avid Juicy 5s, and Exiwolfs. Came out nice. Stay tuned.
