Got home and my wife told me that a large box is waiting for me in the garage. Woo hoo!
The box. Man. How did they fit a bike in there?
Ahh ... so that is how it's done! Hmm ... is everything here?
Yep, it is a MTB all right. But is it the Fly Team?
Oh yeah! Hmm ... is it the frame titanium?
Yep, it sure is!
I got a long night ahead of me!
After several hours, a dinner break, and putting my girls to sleep, my bike is 99.9% complete! Swapped the cassette for a pair of XTR 11/34, changed the tires to WTB Velociraptors, got a longer DA/XTR 9sp chain, and added bottle cages and a frame pump.
I like it so far!
One more pic!
I wish I can give a ride report, but I don't have any pedals (being delivered tomorrow ... a set of new Egg Beater SL) and it is really late outside. Once I get the pedals in, I'll share my thoughts. So far, the bike is a beauty and really light in comparison to the 2007 Trek Fuel EX7 I used to own.
