    <BR>Hey there folks, here's what's going on. I'm working from home on Thursday and Friday. Which explains why I've been up late tonight at the bench. It looks like I can get this set into the epoxy to cure over the weekend.

    <BR>Hey how about this. The batch shown here passed muster and is going into epoxy today. That means they'll be ready to ship on Thursday. The last two batches are also moving along in the build process.

    Excellent,.. GS fever seems to have sprung through a minor section of the ranks. I've been following this thread since page one, and ordered along the way. Considering this is a research and development project (that's for marketing) it doesn't matter about the time Poolside has taken to make all these little babies (by hand... not robot factory). After the build batch i have to wait for the cross-Pacific currents to float mine to Australia...in a bottle... then a Kangaroo will pick it up off the beach... then i'll get it (Skippy works for Aust post now). Patience... a little artisan "motronic-muh-bitch" component will get here soon enough. Cheers, enjoy those of you who are already equipped. And thanks for even thinking about it Poolside. :norton

    Heh heh. No way, and give up all this? Here's what it looked like a few minutes earlier from the picture you commented on.

    The last epoxy step for this batch is just about cured. Sometime this afternoon. A final test and they're ready to ship.

    <BR>The picture below was from Friday morning. These 32 pieces are just getting packed and labeled, and there they sit. I received a call Friday morning to be in Glendale ready for a 3pm job pitch meeting. It's for a job in January, cross your fingers.

    These are going to the mail today. And as far as this weekend goes, the weather report says rain. That means I can't go to the beach and work on my tan.&#8194;:jkam&#8194;:nono&#8194;Instead I'll be in the shop a good number of hours this weekend, putting together IICE Airs.

    I am so psyched! Now I am gonna... ummm... go... through $200 tires even faster... lol!

    Now I gotta go get my 50k service done and ride it a little before I plug it in to get a good before and after compare... I am getting a whole new bike doubly so!
