Sir, They've delivered a healthy Quiring

After quite the run-around, I have taken ownership of a very light bike box filled with a frame and fork. I snapped some quick photos to appease the masses, and add to my smugness.

The frame looks awesome! If it hasn't been obvious yet, it's a Quiring titanium 29er with hooded Paragon sliding dropouts and a steel rigid fork. The fork was intended to be painted to match the finish of the raw titanium. It turned out more on the glossy/tan color side but I think it looks good. (Edit: I've been told by my art-major wife that the color is more 'warm silver'.) It will be much more clear once the parts get put on.

What's with that der hanger thingy on the back?

Well, since this is clearly the last bike I'll ever need to buy, I figured I'd give myself the option of a 1x9 setup.

Don't fret, it will be setup singlespeed style from the get-go. I don't even own any derailleurs anymore.

Nice choice of words "need to buy"

He-hem... It's "Studio Art" major thank you very much. And all those years of working at the frame shop gave me many ways to describe gold and silver.

I like the title of this blog post, by the way. You're cute.
