    Betsey, this is so cool! I can't wait to see this one parked next to #500. Now that will create some buzz.

    Cary, are you going to have it bronzed? You know, like baby shoes.

    I think you can tell I have nothing to do tonight...

    It was great to read how early Cary decided on the Stainless Steel fenders (#0001). Having only owned my CI for two months - I just did a camp out.. 23 miles down a gravel road and found out just how smart a decision that was and how unsatisfied I would be if I had painted fenders - like most of the other brands out there. See below


    Great place BTW - Cascade Pass in the North Cascades (Washington State)... Mineral Park Campground - no water or electric - beautiful mountain river and the American Alps just down the road.

    Sounds nice. Another American Alps? We were to Ouray, CO last year, also known as the Alps of the US or American Switzerland. I personally like to think of the Swiss Alps as the European Rockies...

    On our maiden voyage, Craig felt really bad about the pitting, as Cary had done such a nice job of painting the fenders. The stainless rock guards were added to protect the fenders from future pitting. So, it wasn't too hard for Craig & Cary to decide all future teardrops would have stainless fenders.

    If the pits aren't too deep, you can use a purple Scotchbrite pad on them.

    Hi Betsey,

    No need to polish, I'll leave that for the aluminum... besides - its kind of a badge of experience ;^)

    Oh, Cascade Pass, right next to Sahale Arm, one of my most favorite hikes. It has to be the marmot capital of the world. I hope you got to at least hike to the pass.

    Yep - beautiful spot.

    The only thing better would have been to camp and spend a couple days up there.. but that would have been one of those 1/2 inch thermorest matteresses and my back would have said - No thanks....
