Our Small Mountain Bike World
Well, Titus is history. Sold this evening. eBay reaches like a gabillion people world wide and a dude from not more than 30 minutes from my house saw it and is buying it. Wierd. Deal's going down tomorrow night. Frame and fork are gone. Now I can talk to Big Al about ordering up the the El Caliente Booger a.k.a. The Hot Booger, a.k.a., the Salsa Dos Niner. Pardon my Spanish (I failed it in H.S. along with almost every other course)
Been going over the build sheets figuring out what to put on the Dos-Nine. Some of my Titus parts will go on, but I want to update to full 9 speed. Oddly it's cheaper for me to upgrade to full SRAM rather than Shimano even though I'd have to buy a brand new X9 rear derailleur. BUT it would also be nice to have all the parts the same for ordering purposes, BUT it would also be nice next year when SantaSram visits Bikeman to be able to order up parts on the team tip. Hmmmm. Much to think about.
Was going to spin tonight, but with Wifey sick and me fighting germs like Han f-ing Solo all over the house I thought it best to lay low, conduct my e-business and maybe look at some crime fighting on the internet or something....cough, ahem....

The word condiment is Seinfeld code for "bike" of course.
