    Christmas/Early Birthday Combo Present




    This is my Christmas/Birthday (January) and my wife says the next 3 anniversaries. I think it is well worth it though. The original tires were changed out to the red sidewall Armadillo Elite All Condition tires. I wanted a little more red in the bike. I am anxious to make 2009 a good year.

    Saweet! Another white bike also.

    I guess I got it right when I had this frame set powder coated white ealier this week. I have a "theme" in mind for it.

    Showoff!! You know that is what I am after so you just want to rub it in.

    Seriously though, great looking bike. Hopefully I will have one like it soon. As discussed earlier, you will love the Dillo's.

    Nice bike. I saw this bike in my LBS and drooled all over it. The manager at the bike store said the little offsets help absorb vibration. I think it just makes it look a little more radical. A new bike isn't in my future, but don't tell the LBS that I want to take the bike for a test ride.

    Thanks guys. It is a dream come true for me. I have waited many years for my 2 kids to finish school and get out on their own. One is now an attorney and one is a physical therapist. At age 55 I finally got myself a little present.
