With 'cross season inching closer I have been looking at some past builds. This one was the first time I experimented with any carbon and this frame turned out very nice. Brad said it rolled very smooth, solid and compliant. I plan on building an all carbon cross frame just as soon as I finish this carbon road frame. I know, I know, I've been talking about it for ever. I just ordered all the vacuum bagging supplies that I will need and I should have a vacuum pump shortly. Steel frames are what pays the bills right now, so that is what I spend the majority of my time on but I really enjoyed building this frame and would be happy to do more. Looks like a race machine. The 29er should be painted today or tomorrow and I'll be posting some pics asap but in the meantime I had to put up some "blast from the past" stuff just because I was tired of looking at Clinger's face. We'll probably see less and less of it. Good luck to him.
