So after racing for the first time this summer and really enjoying it more than anticipated, I went to see our local frame builder in Bellows Falls and got a XC race frame to build up... Here she is!

The green frame you see hanging up in the background will be reborn a single speed. Speaking of which... how are you liking that eno hub?

Can you mount a light on that bad boy. We should get a night ride in as a team before GG. Let me know what works for you.

yeah, can do...

I'd like to get the 4 of us to go over maybe the sunday after Harding Hill to ride the course.

Just give me a few days notice and I'll plan the night ride for us, where would you like to go?

Now that I have got it all worked out, it works very nice. I had the wrong chain and chainring on. I needed a 3/32? and not a 1/8 to match the freewheel.
