It Followed Me Home. Can I Keep It? 2011 Giant XTC 1
It followed me home today. I promise to take care of it and get it dirty and beat the living hell out of it:thumbsup:

I had a temporary raised bar put on, plus my trusty Pure V Seat and Ergon grips and the Azonic 420s. Here is the killer though. I am still not released from my recent surgery to ride. St. Patties day will be my Go Date. I couldn't even take the bike off of the rack. Had to get my wife to do it as it is about 11# over my 15# current lift limit. I just could not leave it at the shop any longer. I at least had to get it home and into my office so we can get to know each other;)

As soon as the weather straightens out, i will get outdoor pics up (you know, the one leaned up against the white garage door). I am so stoked. What a cool bike:cool:

I was the same way when I got my Sun Equalizer wheelset; I know it was going to be a MAJOR step up from the damned Deore disc/Rhyno Lite setup I'd had crutching me through the winter.'s worth the wait...........

If that is not motivation enough to get healed up quickly then I don't know what is.

Awesome looking steed you got there!

Nice looking machine that. Good luck on the recovery so you can get out on the road on it! Just remember, small steps - don't let your enthusiasm out strip your physical limits!

No, you absolutely cannot keep it - I'll take it off your hands - you know, for your own protection :-)
