"Dillinger Escape Plan!"

Pow! Here it is. My winter project (one of many this year) is finally done! And I have to say, it is damn sexy! I wanted to upgrade my single speed to a 29er since I got my Superfly last year. And it took some time to figure out what I wanted, but finally decided on a Soul Cycles Dillinger XC 29er. Dollar for dollar you can't beat this frame. In fact I picked it up direct off of during a promo for $309! After blinging the hell out of this thing, I weighed it at my LBS using the fish scale and it came in at 20.9 lbs!!!! That is almost a pound lighter than my Superfly! So here is the detail of all the bling on it. I hope you enjoy...
