I really wanted to do one of those cool pre-build photos with all the components lined up looking spiffy, but with my current schedule this is the best I could do.
|Everything but the wheels and frame!|
|I didn't want to jinx anything by taking it out of the box.|
The Thompson seatpost was a gift for another frame that ended up being too big for me, and the bottle cages were gifts from family.
I used to tell Mohammad of The Old Bike Shop that someday, I would take Mr. Yamaguchi's class - and when I did, I'd call him up and order SRAM Red from him. He would always laugh and say he'd wait for my call, and I think he was a bit shocked when I stayed true to my word!
Even though I had to know the components before I made the frame, it took time to collect everything and finally get to this point.
It's definitely surreal. And I can't wait to see how it turns out.
