Joe's 29'er Elephant

Money shot.
Stare at the bottom bracket for a bit in this pic and the next.
Glen did things a tad differently to fit fat tires, small chain ring, and derailleur.

This is one of two yellows that Glen has easy access to.

Frame, no fork: $850

For parts, Joe got a screaming deal on a Salsa El Mariachi and swapped over all the parts. As it turns out the Mariachi frame was Glen's size and he wanted it, so looks like win win all around.

The bike suits Joe.

And of course, it makes him faster.

I love Joe's new bike. Lisa is interested in getting Glen to build her a tourer sometime soon.

Gosh that's quite the climber. 29ers are great, hope it rides nicely.
