Put most of the custom graphics pack on today... only parts not on yet which am using are the swing arm pieces.

Mt. Hood hid from us all day, but that didn't stop the views from being absolutely incredible.

Not mine, but the eldest Hungarling's first bike arrived just in time for his birthday:

 

 

I was a bit worried as he's 12 years old and this will be his first clutch, first transmission, first two-wheels, but we went over the friction zone of the clutch real quick, how to feel it, and when to use the clutch and he's done surprisingly well!

I was also a bit worried he'd out grow it instantly as I don't remember any of my 4-stroke 125's being able to keep my attention for long.  Heck, even my 2-stroke 125s began to feel a bit lacking as I started getting towards highschool age.  Well?  I gotta say I don't think that's going to happen ANY time soon!  This thing RIPS! (and the kid is HOOKED)  He reports that he's only "just tried 3rd gear". 

When I gave it a go, I had the wheel up pretty easily in 2nd gear.

so there we go, we've got one more sprocket spinning on this earth

My wife and I will be campground hosts in Michigan later this summer.  I can bring bikes but they have to stay outside, under a bike cover.

 

I am not going to bring my carbon Canyon Endurace.  

 

Between Todd's and my spare parts I was able to put this together.

 

2014 Trek Madone series 2 Aluminum frame and carbon forks

 

Vaulta 2011 carbon wheels, shallow.

 

Sram Force rear derailleur

 

Sram rival shifters and front derailleur 

 

Sram Red 10speed titanium rear cassette  , lol, overkill

 

Shimano Sora crankset with shimano press in Dura Ace bottom bracket 

 

Shimano SLR front brakes.  Shimano 105 rear brakes

 

Bontrager saddle and Bontrager 44mm handle bars, Bontrager rythm pro 90mm stem

 

Used 25mm continental gp4000 tires

I might put my Ultegra left crankarm on it, it has a cadence sensor. Or I can get nutty and put my dura ace powermeter crankarm on. 

 

62 cm frame and I still need to raise the seat a little.

Good times
