Banshee Rune: The Beginning

The distributors in Vancouver were nice enough to send me a picture of my bike on the loading dock ready to be sent to my local bike shop

Under the tree just before Christmas 2007

All ready for the build.

Freshly built.

First ride, posing at the trailhead.

The perfect setting for the perfect ride.
