    oh man! im giddy like a little school girl. the first box of parts for my new bike arrived today!

    i wasnt really sure where to put this.

    1 echo urban fork...check
    1 try-all bar, stem, and grips...check
    1 try-all 2.0 front tire...check
    1 michilen dh comp 24.1 tire.....not check yet but in a day or two!

    now im just waiting on my bonz cranks, fsa bb, and wheels stuff and the frame. all nervousness about spending this kind of money is gone and now i feel like a little school girl.

    if by manual you mean make a measley attempt to lift up your front end and coast around but instead you just fall over like a douche, then i think ill still have the manualing down. =)
