It has arrived...

Went to the LBS to pick up the bar for the new trail build and it turns out the frame already came in.

I want to build it up now but I'm too busy getting some work done for next week. So no complete pictures until it's done...

You need air in your tires! 0 PSI isn't going to cut it!

Do all Canadians need arrows on the floor to tell them which way to go?

Interesting color choice, like the white bars, I just hope you bought the fastest ones.

That's just carpet upside down in the new hardwood...we're in mid-renos right now. But the arrows do help navigate through the house.

The colours may not make it the fastest, but hopefully at some races I will be able to!

Yeah I could tell, just giving you a hard time.

White is the combination of all the colors of the visible light spectrum, so it should in fact be the fastest. What is the purpose of the vertical tube on the non-drive side, looks like it's connected to the top pivot?

The sand powdercoat looks better in person...not as orange.

It's the I9 wheelset.

So will the bars be going faster than the rest of the bike?

The tube is support for the rear triangle.

I'm going to use it for the 24 Hours of Adrenaline in Canmore in July but mostly for trail riding, some Super Ds and whatever 4-cross or slalom racing I can get out to.

Sweet... I was supposed to be joining a team there this summer and if I'm 100% it's still on my list of things to do.

They will make up for its other shortcomings and pull it along
