BF Secret.

Now, I'm not disclosing anything at this point, but there may be a chance of another bike in my shed by weeks end.

Speculate away.

I speculate that, like cats, your other bikes(s) have been out at night having unprotected bike sex.

Please let it be a either g-boxx or rohloff speedhub bike.

Eurobike 08 - massive increase in the number of g-boxx, v-boxx (the suntour version), belt drive and internally geared bikes

It can be all arranged. Just send me a PO and I will be sure to do it all.

Oh, just add it to that open PO for the previous work.

BTW, that voucher works wonderfully - - my vendor list has grown and it adjusts effortlessly.

It will be a mountain bike.
It will have no rear suspension.
It will have front suspension - just how much I won't say.
It will be disc only - hydros if it matters.
It will be geared.
It will be a complete bike.

It will not come from Ferndale WA. It will come from Midland WA - different WA
It will not be internally geared or gearboxed, at least when I first get it anyway.
Calculating grams to hectares will be an important part of the decision process, despite the fact that the decision has been made.
Nobody on my end of the deal is paying a cent - but the "seller" is getting money.

Can't wait to disclose this.
