Coming to life . . . the pink-accented Turner 5 spot . . .
The boys and the mostly finished product!
Fully operable in Moab - I was beginning to wonder if I'd ever see the day!!!!
Now that it's done, I think building bikes is fun and I can see how some get so into it . . . I also think it's good to have an idea of how these things go together and work so as to improve my ability to respond to mechanicals on the trail. Having said that, I think part-ordering and bike-building with limited time in town was one of the more stressful things I've done in awhile! But, this bike is amazing, rides like a dream, and allowed me to ride trails like I wasn't able to on my old bike, making it all worth it :-)
