Unit 2-9 Builds, Day 1

With the help of Clifford Robertson (Mango Bike Shop) we were able to start building the 29ers last night. Here are some of the first pics. More to come!

All the parts..

These babies were hard to get...very pretty!

Eddie hard at work

Mango, the shop owner looks pleased with the twins

Hopefully we can have Day 2 soon. The hydraulic cable was too short for the Avid Juicy 7' we need to order that before we can install the brakes.

got banned t-shirts

If you don't know what it is, then you probably don't want one. There were only 20 of these made, and several have already been sold in the ATL area. $12+ shipping is your cost. there is no profit being made on them. post a comment here with your contact info if you'd like one...and we'll see if there are any more left in your size..the t-shirts are black, and have this on the front:

Clifford's got one..

Riding with the Wingnut Pack

I finally got in some riding with the Wingnut Gear hydration pack this weekend, I was wearing the Hyper 1.5. At first, my back hurt a lot more with it, but then we adjusted the straps to make the pack sit lower on my back...and after that it felt great, very natural. My only complaint with the Hyper 1.5 is that the bladder only holds 52 oz. and I need more than that for rides longer than 4 hours. I was able to put an extra bottle in the pack, though. I believe the Hyper 2.5 that Eddie is using is the same size as the Hyper 1.5 but holds almost 100oz. in the bladder. Check em out, I'm totally sold on it:
