Stayed up until 2:00am finally finished up the Traveler's Check build, if I had finished any sooner we wouldn't be able to test out the dynamo lighting. Monica was thrilled, "the most beautiful bike I've ever seen" she exclaimed. She intends to put it through some testing tomorrow at the Kincaid single track MTB trails.

XTR rim brakes stop better than my Avid BB7's!
All it needs now are some Surly Monkey Nuts so I cam slam the rear tire forward in the dropouts to gain some much needed clearance at the chainstay bends..
