Well I had been staring at the frame for months, and had the build already sorted with the parts in a bin. It was just a matter of getting the frame refinished, and the decals (thanks again Rockimtn!) sorted. All I had to do was have the right crank arm rethreaded for the pedals, and to cut the steerer down slightly for the American Classic headset. Everything else went together easily.
I sure hope you do get a chance to visit when you are in this area. You know I can hook you up with a loaner bike! The first picture of my bike overlooking the water, has the San Juan Islands in the background!
Oh my good god...
I had a Rocky Titanium around 93 and switched to the Tibolt... Regretted it badly. The Titanium was a fantastic ride. I was looking for this bike for years but never could get my hand on one... Is this a 20" frame??? Please say NO ;-)
