It's annoying. Maybe I should open a bike shop. Twice as fast, 2/3rds the price, but no parts on trap (for now).

I guess the guy forgot I build my own bikes. Lol.

I guess the next best thing is to move in next door to a bicycle parts supply warehouse like Niagara Cycle. Then there is no wait for parts. I'd like to visit their bike shop just to see how well it operates.

That would be awesome. But, no warehouses out here. I've been told I should start a shop. I just dont see money in it, because of the frames. I'd love to buy some of the old frame designs and spec the components to my liking. Rebadge as Hokkaido Star. I've named most of my bikes. The aluminum comp is Hokkaido Star Light (Re-Light for a full Carbon version), the xr250 is the Hokkaido Star Knight (Re-Knight with better components and more travel) and the Blackcomb is the Hokkaido Star Sky (Re-Sky for better components and more travel)

Copyright junk keeps me from doing it. Lol

Bike is done. Adjusting the front brake, then another test ride. Then pictures.

Do have a title for your stat? Hokkaido star tall tail? For a 29er hardtail with a bit of a rebuild story. Or Hokkaido star pop. Relating to the popularity of 29ers and expanding stat to statistic like population statistics... you don't need to use any of these. I'm just bored on easter Sunday.
