Crazy Joe Update

Hope this finds everyone happy and healthy. I got three more pieces to the puzzle that is Crazy Joe on friday at the end of business.

I purchased a bontrager stem, handlebar, & seatpost for a smokin' hot deal. All three for $21.50. Can't go wrong there. Here's the update of where I stand so far as costs go.

“Crazy” Joe’s Cost Comparison

Item/MSRP/Paid – (Shipping)

Specialized “Rockhopper” 21” Frame/$120.00/$25.00 – ($25.00)
Suntour XCR Front Suspension Fork/$160.00/$52.00 – ($14.00)
2008 Cane Creek S8 Headset 1-1/8"/$70.00/$26.00 – ($8.00)
Bontrager Race Modified 620 Handlebar/$30.00
Bontrager Race Handlebar Stem/$50.00
Bontrager Sport Seat Post/$20.00/$21.50 – ($10.00)

$450.00/$124.50 – ($57.00)

Next step is to build the repair stand, update the Trail Dog Tools blog, and start puting this front end together. I did my first stationary ride in a LONG time over the weekend. Put 9 miles on before the "fam" woke up. Better than nothing I guess, especially seeing we got 3" of snow overnight here in FDLWI.
Nothing else to report for now. I hope everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving.
