EWR update!

Spent a little chicken on the EWR to determine if it lands on the eBay out door or if it once and for all finds a warm fuzzy place in my heart. Early feedback is positive.

New 9 speed Sram chain and cassette update the drive train.

Truvativ Noir carbon (eek!) crankset and Team GXP bottom bracket bearings

Then I got down to the glamor side of the weekend... Now you see the cheap-ass headtube sticker and... you don't!

I marked the holes to drill and tap, and then a little double sided tape to hold it in place as I set the stainless hardware with a bit of Lock-Tite. Note that the screw heads are properly clocked, thank you very much.

The done deal.

The drive train.

The Rock Shox Valdez.

And to top it off, a fresh 100mm 5deg Thomson stem to shorten the front end to the prescribed measure from the EWR folks.

Next stop, Dirt!

Ummm...its early here and I'm not fully awake but were you considering selling your Woods? :-O

Only in the sense that I don't use it as much as I should. Between the Phoenix and the Turner, it has been a dusty critter for quite a while.

Mmmm...if you decide to sell let me know. It'd be a nice addition to my collection!

Not seriously considering it, really. Only when I hit my head on it when it's hanging from the rafters in the bike room.
