A few updates!

Rody's Ho is DOWN! Chris' King is ON! And I've got a mess of spacers and a hi-rise Salsa to fill in while I wait for a custom stem from Winter Cycles for a drop bar set up. Some of you may have seen these on MTBR, but for the sake of Fat posterity, I thought I'd add them to the mix here too.

Cool, looking forward to seeing it in drop bar mode.
I just put a set of June Bugs on my Bontrager and am digging the drops position on twisty singletrack.
Nice work with the tasteful solution to get the bars nice and high.

Ack---I never updated this. I finished it up over the summer. Here are a few shots!

---and sorry it is original paint and it gives me a near heart attack whenever I approach rocks!

Really nice!
I guess that's the benefit of a custom stem--the sizing is spot on. I originally got the Ho Down forks to bring my '91 Yo back to life, and it is possible that eventually the Monster's parts will migrate that way. In the meantime, Frank's a beaut and rides like one too.

I'd be more likely to wail on it if it were the battle-scarred Yo though...


----and re: the stickers: if you end up getting new ones made up, I can take some hi-res pics of my decals for you.
