    The raffle bike is being built as I type this , holding off on pictures until I start putting the frame together but the pieces are rolled and bent , I will post a thread of the hole build soon , should be a very wild bike but very easy to ride , it will have 29" wheel set and that's the only hint I will give until the build thread

    Well, given that the show will nearly coincide with the RRBBO end date, I think people would wait till the website build off starts to kill two bikes with one stone. That's my plan...
