It's not THAT bad. We ride BMW's ... our general opinion of what is tasteful is already in question. Deny that.

It also helps that I am a true left brainer. While I can identify colors ... they mean nothing to me. I see the structure, the forks, the suspension, how the frame works ... on a geometric level. Color? Yes. It has color (checking that off on the list).

Now we're talkin ... and that is entirely the point. I have less than a grand in this bike ... as it sits. Right now. The point is really to see how much it actually takes to 'GS-ify' something and get me riding the trails!

After it's all said and done ... I will have a working trail bike that I already know the in's-and-out's of ... and it won't have costed me my savings, first born, or left nut ...
