Finally got the new bike together...

I got the frame in February and I only got it finished on Thursday night (mainly because I waited a couple of months to order the brakes)...damned I'm a slacker. But we've had a crappy spring and most trails in the immediate area aren't rideable so it's not like I've been missing out.

Anyway, the bike is awesome...the geometry is perfect for the way I like to ride trails without having to lug along a bunch of suspension. Loves to pedal, and the cornering is amazing, even just playing around on the street. It feels like a smaller, poppier version of the V10 which is exactly what I wanted. So here it is...

Is that a Blur LT? It's pretty sweet looking. What's up with the stem lowered down on the steerer tube?

It's a Blur 4x and I haven't cut the steerer tube yet, hence the extra spacers above the stem.
