Really beautiful! I have been looking a lot at some of the MAP builds lately.

Cannot go wrong with the VBC or Herse cranks.

Cannot wait to see how this one turns out. So cool.

Heh thanks.

We'll be riding through your Minneapolis constantly this summer.

Sooner or later we'll bump into each other!

We'll give that a shot and see if she likes it.
those are great too, more appropriate for this bike probably too.

Absolutely.

Kept an eye out for you and the few local PLers I recognize on the Slick 50 yesterday, but did not notice anyone from here. I only had time for part of the ride but always a fun bunch and I got in a pretty good 35 miles total after peeling off early. Beautiful day and another shaping up now!

I was helping at a seminar at the Great Waters Fly Fishing Exhibition.

My other obsession is fly fishing.

Not my arena, but I have a number of friends who live for it.

I would love to have these, but I don't want to step on any toes either.

Congrats, Grady, on the bike and the 30 years! I know you've been an admirer of Mitch's work. Your wife is a lucky gal, and you are a righteous guy. I couldn't think of a better gift to give or receive.

Heh thanks.

Let's just say she deserves a lot more than a bike though.

I'm sure she'll love the MAP.

Out for delivery today, so I have to beat the Fedex guy before she sees it.

I'd like to finish the build before the end of April.
