Sorry. I think it found a good home, though maybe not with as many of its brothers as you have. Pardon

I understand, and I hope it does go to a good home.  I'm considering letting a handfull of bikes go in the first quarter next year myself.  I get my satisfaction in building them up and rarely ride some of them after I'm done.  Keep your eyes open next year for a 4-Banger, Homegrown Sweet-Spot and a Paramount resto-mod MTB.

He said he'd send pictures once it was built so hopefully he's good for it. That was the thing for me-couldn't bear to have that bike sitting unbuilt and unridden. Tell me more about this Sweet Spot you might be getting rid of...cool

Well, I will have 2 now.

First to sell will be a 15" Factory sweet spot that is the silver/silver.  It has the Deluxe rear shock, and the shock eyelets are worn.  Turned out that was the only problem with my other sweet spot.  This frame originally came with the Super Deluxe, so when I swapped it with my other frames shock, the "clunk" went away from my other frame and jumped into this frame.  The bike is built with XT shifters/v-brakes/hubs.  STX-RC remaining drivetrain.  Marzocchi Z3 2001 with polished M-arch and crown.  Mavic red X-517 rims.  Titec sliver aluminum seatpost.  Polished stem/handlebar/bar ends.  Definitaly a looker.

Next is a 17" Factory BBB front triangle/polished rear.  Needs a decal kit.  Freshly cleaned and lubed pivot with no slop, plus a nice RS Super Deluxe.  It's set up with 1x10 with XT shifter/cassette/crankset and an XTR rear der.  XT rear v-brake, XTR front v-brake (faded color mathes the fork perfectly).  Fox F80X fork with silver legs and blue decals.  I have different wheel options, but most likely sell with XT hubs on dark blue Mavic 222 rims.  Titec polished Titanium seatpost, Avid SAAGO polished stem and Yeti polished flat bar.

How's the paint on the 17" BBB SS FS XC MTB? I'd probably have to have my wife put on the decal kit since I suck at that! *shakes fist at Lego decals*

Not bad paint.  The white line on top tube is what is left of the original "S" wrap decal.  The downtube decals are genuine Homegrown for 98-99 models.

Looks nice. I like the Titec and Fox combo up front too.
