we're going to need a scale shot from Matts shop.

You want to repair his roof when the bike rips the scale out and tears a hole in the roof?

I might take this down the the transfer station and get it weighed on the trucking scales, a more fitting tool for this beast.

I would like to see how it rusts/ages once rain season gets here.

In a perfect world I'd start looking at going black chrome on some parts, the Chromag black chrome bars are a wicked effect, more subtle than standard chrome.

If it gets any paint it will be some dull flat black rat rod style.

I was just going to suggest semi gloss black! I have seen a semi gloss black Ritchey fram back in the day. Looked good. Shine with a light oil.

Debate? Bikes are made for riding not pushing.

Thank you! (already checked stock in squamish, and its in)… going to make my post-work ride a little bit more delicious.

It doesn't hold beer cans :(

And remember beer in your coffee mug tastes like crap, so label your coffee and beer mugs :)

Crying for coffee?

It's not like it is some exotic IPA.

Unless it's that exotic coffee bean that gets eaten then pooped out by some animal.

Noted to keep an eye on it.

The crying or swearing more accurately was more for my pants that I was wearing just moments before a client meeting.

You can all go to hell. I'll be joining you shortly and I'm bringing beer and cheetos.

So you weren't wearing them at the client meeting? Your sentence is a little vague :)

I always impress when pants-less.
