Here's a shot of a ROUGH, just glued combo from Jure. The saddle is based off the Speedneedle, which is almost identical to the POP saddle I have when it's strip of the leather backing. I hope to get this in a week or two. This one will go with the Rue and will definitely drop the weight :wink: While I had my bike home for the week, I was able to dial in the position. One of the unused drawings from Crumpton actually helped me get my position on my Ruegamer. I just had to get a shorter stem. It's crazy how dead on accurate Nick is with his positioning. I've never felt so good on a bike and he wasn't even fitting me for this bike.

Love the integrated saddle/post. Can't wait to see it built up.

It's ridiculous how long it's taking Zero Gravity to rebuild these brakes. That's all I'm waiting on. I think we are going on a month.

Why not post a picture of the bike as-is? Are you worried that if you post now, you will ruin the grand introduction later? :)

Seriously, can a brother get a picture please?

Update... Zero Gravity needs to hire more than the one employee they have to repair brakes. I'll give it another week or so and then if I haven't got the brakes back, Ill just say screw it and get a different set.

I'm most excited about my Crumpton that Nick just finished up. Hopefully he'll send over a few pics before it gets sent for it's finish, so I can start a thread. I think people are going to lose their sh!t over what Nick is producing now. :wink:

I absolutely love the way Ruegamer frames look! Most of all I like the way you can tell the frame is actually hand built, like you could tell on older steel frames.

That's what drew me towards the Ruegamer in the first place...you can tell it is handmade. I'm with you on liking that quality :thumbup:
