The eagle is airborn

Touchdown is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon and the fun will begin immediately.

I began this project back in late August thinking I was ahead of the curve and that I would have plenty of time to order the frame, pick out the parts, and get the bike built before the first snowflake hit the ground. I won't go into the drama here but I was sooooo close to pulling the plug and ordering a Pugsley a couple of times. It doesn't help that my buddies over at Fitzy's didn't order Pugsleys until November and have been riding for a few weeks already. Have I mentioned that I am not a patient person? I am excited about this frame and I know it is going to be worth the wait.

I have all of the parts I need and I am hoping the build goes smoothly.
The only thing I don't have is a headset press so I may bomb over to Fitzy's and have them press that in for me.

On the training front, I am hoping that today and tomorrow are my last trainer rides for a while and I get outside on the new hotness Friday.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHhhh can't wait to see it. Do fatbikes still run 100mm front hubs?

Dave said...

Chris, yes the Fatbike runs a 100mm front hub and this was a HUGE reason for choosing this frame. I can run a standard set of 29" wheels in the summer and have a rigid 29er/touring bike. Woohoo!
