Thanks to my messing around on eBay over the Thanksgiving break, this Niner JET 9 frame:
will replace this Sugar 293 frame for the 2009 XC season:
I will move all of my parts over from the Sugar to the JET 9 (and then some). It's all about the motor, but I am looking forward to this sleek XC racing rig arriving this week. There was nothing wrong with the Sugar, but my low ball bid on the JET 9 was the winning bid and now I am invested in the change. C'est la vie.
We've got snow covering the ground here in Iowa, so riding outside is on the back burner at the moment and all training is in the gym and on the exercise bike at the moment.
