First things, first.

The other day Brown Santa (aka UPS) dropped off the last item needed for the Spot build, an X9 Trigger shifter.  I wanted to go 1x10 seeing that I couldn't sell the Ross I had to settle for a 1x9.  Before I can start the build, there are few things I have to take care of first.

The Soul Cycles fork that I put on the Monster Cross has been bothering me and I decided to go back to the QStick.  The SC fork is good 50mm higher at the crown than the QStick and I felt that it was throwing the geometry off.  I am tempted to try SC fork on the Kona.  

Next thing on the to do list is to put the Carver Carbon fork back on the Kona because I will be using the Fox F29 on the Spot.  It's also time to start riding again.  I have been missing all this wonderful riding weather because two weeks ago I over did it but going hiking (geocaching) the day after riding.  I have been taking it easy but now it's time to get back in the saddle.
