Link isn't working for me. I'll just assume it's a full suspension mountain bike frame.

If it fits you Siu, and you can ride without pain, it is a perfect bike - no matter what the cost. It's not like you haven't tried less expensive alternatives.

Awesome.

If you have all the components (and you do) you can really splurge on the frame.

OK, Siu... we've talked about this before and 6 GRAND is WAY too much for you to spend on a frame!! I mean, I know you got a discount from your nephew and all, but holy crap!! For your first roadie you go for the most expensive bike out there?? I suppose you got one of their $2500 custom purple paint jobs, too!! Wow... talk about diving in head first ( too the deep end, no less!)

That said, drooool!

It's not getting painted, its getting anodized. Purple. Just like I told you a few months ago. I know you squawked at me then but how many people get a chance at this?

Besides, who was it that was typing in grey "get the IF" in a subliminal message? Who PMd me "get the IF" Who kept egging me on? I'd say it was YOUR fault.

So can I borrow like 4K?

Ahhhhhhh crap. So the guilt kicks in.

I can't do this. Someone put me up to this. It's an April Fools Joke. I didn't get this bike, are you kidding me??

I'm sorry I was kidding you guys - and you are all so sweet.

The bike I ordered is actually waaay more boring than this one. So when I DO post it, it won't be so bad now, huh?

And I know Skiahh was only kidding me, he and I josh each other all the time. *head bowed down in shame*

I sure hope efrobert is wrong. IndyFab makes wicked cool stuff. If only they made wicked cool lugged steel stuff . . . . (I know they make steel, but it's TIG welded, not brazed.)

Fee fi fo fum
I smell Pheard.

Okay, Siu, just for that, I'm going to come set up your not-an-IndyFab-and-not-from-Rivendell so that your back will be begging for mercy.

Okay, no I won't . . . couldn't do that to you . . . probably.
