27 July 2010 - 20:52Some other upgrades…
Well, as it turns out, I may not be upgrading to the 34t Rotor ring after all. I am still missing the crank that was supposed to go with it, and I can’t make the new ring fit on Furley’s Truvative Noir crank, so I’ll be using the 33t ring unless the new cranks show up.
I will be upgrading the bike though.
I’ve been waiting for this bike for quite some time now. Rumor has it, that a certain celebrity may now be waiting for a bit too, as this frame might have been going his way. Good thing for me, and I’m sure he has plenty of other bikes to ride in the meantime.
This should come as no surprise to anyone that reads this blog with any sort of regularity. I have a severe case of bike ADD.
Not to say that Furley wasn’t up to task. He was, but has had a bit of a complication that will put him on the 15 day DL. So the new hot sensation is signed, wearing the team kit, and is in the starting lineup (almost) ready to go. What about Kermit? Well, Kermit needs to stay retired. He’s earned his rest, and has been invaluable in helping the new kids get sorted out on the team.
So new bike-without-a-name will go into the fire this weekend at the DH40. I still have yet to decide upon the time and location of the shakedown ride, but we are on the fast track to get it dialed in quick.
So, start thinking about names. The christening will happen early next week.
Oops, I almost forgot…
All the stuff you want to know about this bike will be coming up next. It is way more preposterous than you might imagine.
