My new (first real) job is going to be in Florida, so my situation isn't
getting much better. But bike trips won't be financially unattainable at

Alright, so it came in pre-spooged.... But for $550 I'll wipe it down with

A little bit. I'm 1/2 way between 15" and 17", and I like my bikes really
stinkin' small...

Ever seen a road bike where the top of the rear wheel exceeds the height of
the top tube?

Plus I added some photos of the current cracked/rewelded/recracking frame
that I'm currently using with a singulator-type device, hence the new frame.
You can see how low the seatpost is...

Fork: Lyrik (had to toss the Bomber chicks out :eek: )
Wheels: Spinergy XYs
Brakes: Formula ?? (still kicking this one around)
Drive-train: Old XT setup from other bike (?)
Xtras: Hopey

I'm running low on funds right now so I'm cooling off... at least till
this semester is over at the end of next month

predisposition towards almost anything BUT RockShox in this NG. That
Giant frame is pretty elaborate.

Midget. Or vice versa.
Told you it would be bad...
