First, I have to give props to Jon Rock, since I totally stole his FUNKENKLEIN paint scheme. I did contact him to ask for his blessing to use it. I always loved Andreas' Funk Pro Comp and wanted to do a similar build. I thought his build was amazing. Jon had taken that Funk paint scheme and reversed the green and pink. Brilliant. Anyway, thanks Jon!

Thanks Carl. I am 6'6". I have a Paul seatpost right now, but will fit it with a XT tonight. I did ride it last night and I need to lower it a bit. I also need front brakes.
