Thanks Trek

The new frame is here, courtesy of Trek – a brand new ’08 Top Fuel 9.9 SSL. Appreciate that warranty.

Big thanks to Mike at East Coast for trying to get this in a rush. Unfortunately the frame didn’t arrive until Monday, one day after I wanted it for the Tidewater Mountain Bike Challenge.

One notable thing about the redesigned frame: The bottom bracket shell, which shattered on the ’07 Top Fuel, is notably beefier. The downtube is triangular; the older was more oval. The rear shock also is a Fox, rather than the Manitou that was on the ’07.

Can’t wait to go ride her.
