It came, it cracked and it returned. In less than three weeks the new frame arrived and Foxcomp switched the components directly related to the frame. I mounted the remaining components and the result is shown below. The black version isn't quite as striking as the previous blue one, which was color matched to the rims, but it is still aesthetically quite pleasing.
It isn't built up in full tractor mode currently. For that it would need the 2XL tires, which really are substantially bigger than the Surly Buds currently mounted. It is now getting ready to go over the hills and far away, a little over a week from now.
