New Bike

Yes, went out and got next years bike... this year. Its a 2nd hand Giant XTC. The frame's about 4 months old and components are this years. Going to make a few changes to it, namely:
  • Change the avid juicy 7's for XTR's - bought and winging their way to me.
  • Change the double XT crank for an XTR - still on the hunt for a good deal.
  • Chop down the crazy broom like bars :) - done.
Otherwise, I think the bike is spot on. Its got a nice set of Wheels (Hope pro 2's with Bontrager rims), and a Fox RL 80 fork which I have on the Cube and are the business. Going to stick the ODI Rogue's on from the Cube and replace them with the set of CRC flood sale Yeti's I got last week.

I don't plan on actually riding the bike at all till the new year, but I might be tempted to bring it out for a trail once I get all the changes made.
