Very exciting!!!! Chris is such a good guy and everyone should already know how much I love his bikes!

However long the wait, it is going to be worth it. Cant wait to see this come together!

That's gonna be choice. Love those trick downtube and chainstay treatments. I love them on my bishop. Looks like you are maybe going with stainless seatstays? You'll struggle to find a reason to ride any other bike if you have multiples once this one is done.

Amen Brother! Since I got my Bishop I've all but ignored other bikes.

Got to see your frame in person on Friday when I stopped by Chris's shop. The frame had the ee Direct Mount brakes on it and looked ready for paint. Looking very, very sharp!!!!
