24" Redline

Here's mine!

24" Redline Signature Cruiser
24" X 2.5" Maxxis Hookworms
Apehangers
Shimano Nexus Inter-4 Hub

Probably not as "alt" as some others, but I'll be using mine to go to work. It's my Commuter!

i like it, digging the red spokes.

how does the ghost gear work? it doesn't wobble or flop around under hard pedaling?

it seems to work fine, I haven't gotten it up to high speeds yet though. I jammed it in there real tight and now it works way better than the derailer tensioner I was using at first. It also spreads the chainline enough to miss the seat stays.

I like the idea of a cruiser with a 4 speed Nexus. Not the bars though.

I'm trying out some shorter bars right now to see how comfortable they are. They are a good three inches shorter than those apehangers. I took a short ride last night with them on. So far so good.

My Tallbike has two of those horns.

Also, I snapped my front brake cable on it a few days ago, now I'm making a ghetto center pull conversion for it.

if you want, use a straight mtb handlebar as your seat post. the sizing is probably close to right. that makes pedalling way easier on a mini!

I have one on mine, it works great. I let a really big guy ride it last week the frame bent. (chainstay) After that it wouldn't stay in.

I just put a fresh coat of primer on my chopper for spring. The chrome fenders and mag coaster wheel are pretty recent additions as well. I'm still looking for a cheap matching mag for the front.

Thank you! I had a spoked wheel on the back and I did like it. I wanted to do either a 3 leading/3 trailing or a twisted spoke pattern.

I put the mag on there because I wanted a coaster brake (I had a hand brake, but it sucked and had issues with fender clearance). The coaster wheel was NOS at the LBS and only cost me $12, I couldn't resist. If I find a matching one for the front I think I'll paint them both black.

here is my new baby mini. The Rad America "These Colors Don't Run, They Bomb!"
It matches my tallbike as you can see above...

http://www.flickr.com/photos/gabrielamadeus/461779157/

The new mini. 52 - 16 gearing. Nice soft banana seat, custom cover. Pegs. 12" front wheel on a custom 20" fork. Two handle bar configurations one for cruising - the other for The Tuck. The barends will be the attachment points for the fairing. Yes I said it. Fairing.

hello everyone,
First time posting here. The bike I am currently working on is a dyno kruiser frame. The only thing is i am having trouble finding a 24 inch fork for it.
