w00t!
So after a couple of months of gathering parts, over today and tomorrow, I will hopefully be building up my Soma Juice, and changing a pile of bike parts, into a bike. :thumbsup:

hey B0b are there any other web sites other than fotoengineers that have pix from n-duro 2?

I noticed a few photographers through different parts of the course.

Slow day at the office is it? :D

Ok so I had a 45 minute massage after the race in vegas yesterday, then met up with some friends for lunch.

After that....
Fitted and greased the Thompson post and Salsa clamp

Chased and faced the BB shell - cause I'm running external bearing cranks.
Fitted the FSA V drive crank set and truvativ Box guide

faced the head tube to stop any unwanted creaking
fitted the Chris king headset, forks, stem, bars and controls

SV400990.JPG

May switch the bars /stem for something else, Easton flat bars and Answer Stem
Sram Attack shifter
Hope mono mini brakes
And fitted the XT shadow rear mech

And yes, I do need to clean up my work bench :paranoid:

It's starting to look like a bike :rolleyes:
