Maiden voyage a success!

Well, I took my new build out for her maiden trail voyage (I've been riding her back and forth on the 1/2 mile commute to the office for the last week as I've been waiting for the FD to come in. The FD came in and I took it out with a guy who hadn't ridden in 8 years. We went slow, and not far (due to the other rider who has a health condition), but she handled great and I thoroughly enjoyed the feel of the steel (I like Al too, but I wanted to give steel a try). I'll take it out for an abuse ride later this week after today's much needed downpour sinks in. Oh, the specs are in this thread. Below is a pic (minus FD) of the new machine.
