Actually, the shifters and RD are due here this week. I just have to pick up a shim for the Gravity Dropper and some rim tape and then I'll have everything except for the brakes. Not in a huge rush to get this together (I was originally planning on having this together for late-April) so I'll probably order them in the next few weeks.

Interesting color choice, like the white bars, I just hope you bought the fastest ones.
Of course, trail direction is important

Because the 4x should ride like a smaller version of the V10...right?

You don't think it's because some hillbilly owns a Bullitt, do you?

You bought two razzoo VPP rigs because some hack down south rides a stone-axe plumbing-pipe single pivot?

Is razzoo a good or bad thing?

And you had better be careful about those type of statements about other TGMBG members...if you can make it out to a NC forum ride, we may have flashbacks of Deliverance!

Haha! As my son is a Bullit-rider too, I feel I can get away with teasing them for riding something that looks like it was stick-welded out of a bunch of schedule 40

Razzoo good . . . akin to zoot-capri.
