    Steel Against a Green Garage Door?

    This could be a first for BF. A steel hardtail against a green garage door.
    Here is my new build. First of all, a sincere thank you to all of you who have helped me with the build and motivated me to get back into mountain biking after a long hiatus.

    Here are the specs. All parts were new except those donated by a friend. (Man do I ever owe him lots of beer)
    Kelly steel hardtail
    2007 XT drivetrain.
    2007 Juicy carbons
    Chris King headset
    XT/Mavic 717 disc wheels
    Shimano 959 pedals
    Rebuilt Rock Shox SID donated by a friend (I just paid for the rebuild)
    Thomson post donated by same friend
    Carbon profile bars donated by same friend
    Race Face dues stem
    Specialized seat taken off my S works road bike
    Salsa Ti and steel skewers taken off my old Stumpjumper
    Panaracer Cinders- 1.95 rear and 2.1 front (I think the 1.95 rear was a mistake).

    I still need to trim the front brake cable and cut the steerer tube.
    Weight is around 24lbs +/- based on the bathroom scale subtraction method. Total cost $1905. (Isn’t eBay great!)

    awesome shop pic! what do you primarily use it for? (i know i should probably be able to tell from looking, but couldn't really)

    Yes, that is from my uncle. I don't fly fish but only occasionally bait fish for steelhead and cut throat.

    I never realized building a shop would be so difficult. Next time I'm putting the TV lower so I don't have to look up when watching the Sopranos on DVD with surround sound while on the trainer.
