Such a happy family...

Even though I ordered them 8 months apart, both of my shiny bikes for 2009 showed up the same day.  After a frantic day of building bikes, swapping components, and tubeless fun, I got the bikes mostly up and running.

The Superfly SS is gorgeous, as expected. It needs a little more love, as I am still waiting on some centerlock rotor adaptors and a rear skewer.  I'm going to go for a 5 mm bolt-on rear skewer for hopefully a little more security in the dropouts than a quick release. With the adaptors and a standard quick release, the bike weighed in at 21.00 lb with pedals. Not too shabby, as the new frame dropped 1.5 lb from the Rig. This is pretty much final spec for it, it's more than light enough.

Also shiny is the new geared superfly.  The bling factor of this bike kind of caught me off guard. I mean, I expected it to be blingy, but it's kind of next level.  Maybe it's the white spokes that did it. Hmm... Should be equally as awesome as the 08 superfly, as it is the exact same save for a change in crank and wheels. I didn't bother with weighing it, as I've still got a few minor things to do to it. 

Now I just need to find a race where I'm actually going to use gears. Tsali maybe?
