    Pow!

    No, not Prisoner Of War. I picked up my 4300 this a.m. and since it wasn't raining/snowing I took it for a quick spin around the neighborhood. I didn't get far and the front fender I put on ended up in pieces on the road. The 2 pieces of fender, the piece that goes into the headtube, about 3 pieces of shims I'll call them and a spring. LOL I think I collected them all and I'll bring 'em down to the lbs for reassembly next Mon.

    Not to be discouraged, I got back home and took the FX off the trainer and took it for it's virgin voyage. WoW! It's pretty fast! I really really liked it!

    In addition to reassembling my front fender on the 4300 I went to install my rack and found out that the lugs that the rack will connect to aren't threaded (the upper ones are) so I'll have to get some nuts and washers for that. I'm very keen on getting that rack on with the Trek Interchange bag w/panniers so I can get a few things at the market. I'm really looking forward to that.

    The good thing is I took the FX off of the trainer and got it dirty and really appreciated the fast ride.

    Yes, yes, pics will follow

    I should've said the front fender the 'lbs' put on.

    Wow, glad nothing from the fender got caught up in your spokes, that would have really been a bad start to your day!
