Waiting for the Kool Aid to be delivered

So its winter, I haven't been able to ride and I'm bored at work. So what to do except spec and order a new ride?

Rang up Jay at Halter's and decided on a Niner One9 full rigid. Spec'd nicely with mid to high end parts. Should come in at around 20-22 lbs.

Now the waiting starts. Bike should be here in about five weeks.

It'll be interesting going from a 26" FS 2x9 to a 29" rigid SS. I can't wait!

so in 5 1/2 weeks you're gonna have a bike for sale?

Well, I'm planning on keeping the FS, but who knows? I hear these 29'ers are the real deal - do everything including making breakfast. So I probably will be so disgusted with the little wheeled bike that I'll have to sell it. :p

Or did you mean I won't like the Niner? I'm not real good with inuendo.

Bought myself a 29er SS in Dec. and haven't touched the little wheel squish since, freakin kool aid is no good for addictive personality types like myself...

Innuendo is my specialty, along with perversion and sarcasm.

Yes, I was referring to you selling the full squish.

Is it a Turner? If it is maybe you and Fogerson can sell them 2 for 1:D

Congrats on the new bike, you're gonna love it. If you are in the shop within the next few days you will see my Salsa awaiting its ride home. It will be my third big wheel I bought from Halters.

I think I saw it pre-build when I was in there on Wednesday or Thursday - beautiful frameset!
