winter bike build up

Originally uploaded by solo_goat
new stuff:
- 2008 niner emd (still some left at speedgoat- light frames!)
- white brothers carbon fork
- xt front derailleur
- titec 3 degree bar
- salsa seat collar

old stuff from my santa cruz frames
- xt crank/bb
- nokon cables
- sram half pipe shifters/sram rear derailleur
- thompson stem
- king headset

old stuff from my asylums:
- easton e90 carbon post
- san marco ti saddle
- avid mechanicals - from the very first asylum ever
- crank brothers pedals

off my salsa mariachi:
- xt wheelset
- sram rear cassette
- king stainless cages

should be considerably lighter then any other winter bike i've had to date.

mechanical brakes chosen to save me (or should i say dan) the effort and time into getting brakes setup. i actually prefer my mountain training bikes to be fully rigid as it saves a little cash/maintenance in the end and i think it adds a little bit extra skill training to each ride with no shock to soak up bad lines.

and - no - niner is not the 2009 frame sponsor. keep guessing.

My guess is Pivot. You're gunna get two Mach 429's, one red, one silver.
