    You should be ashamed. I'll clean it for you if you send it down. I'm backed up though, so I may not be able to ship it back until December.

    Looks that dirty to me. My MTB has probably never been that clean in the last 6 months.

    Damn, I've been so tardy in posting this up, but this is my Hunstman 650B plus that Kris dialed up after many conversations and helpful advice to steer me in this final direction. I initially wanted a bike that could go from 2 inch 650b mtn tires to something more svelte for the road. Requirements ended up: Di2 hydro, rack mounts room for up to 44mm tires (think Soma cazzadero or similar). I ended up forgoing the extra-wide clearance in order to preserve a proper chainstay length and clearance to accommodate a 34-50 crankset since mtn gearing ended up being too low. I'm super-pleased with the result and the fact that my fit was spot-on at the first ride. I feel like I could go anywhere on this bike and though it is going to spend much of its time as a commuter, great adventures await!

    So later in 2017 I'll (fingers crossed, pending final spousal approval, etc) be trading a 1,000 square foot Trinity in the heart of Philadelphia for a 105 acre "farm" in Berks County, just up the hill from Mr. Kellogg. I say "farm" because about 2/3rds of the acreage is wooded and begging for some trail construction. Bike plans are being reconsidered, and 44 factors strongly into the planning...

    Jon, that is awesome!

    Having a piece of property that would allow a mini mtb bike trail or cross training course on it is my dream. You are making it a reality. Time for you to host a Baller's event dude!

    Congrats! Cities are so 2016. We finally received the easement we had been waiting on for electricity to reach a 32 acre parcel we are trying to buy in Columbia County NY just over the border from Great Barrington MA. My wife doesn't know it yet, but I'm planning on outfitting the house we build with his and hers 44's, though if the purchasing process is any indication (we still have to actually close on the deal - glacially slow,) building the house may take a while.

    I'm originally from Montgomery County, Pa (East Greenville specifically). Bucks and Berks counties are beauties. Good terrain there. A lot of what I build takes notes from those trail's playbook. Just out of town I was lucky to have my Grandparents home on a large parcel of my Grandfathers family farm (Malasky). Many fond memories there and lucky enough for me, a pretty decent trail network wrapped around their home and that's where I first cut my teeth mountain biking.

    Congrats on the Farm!

    @Jorn: Sean's frame is steel (True Temper for those wondering).

    Shoogs, Treehouse Brewery is about that same distance from my house, what gives?

    It may not be fall, but the colors are out.
