This thing is a blast, I've just been looking for excuses to haul a lot of stuff since I finished it. Still needs some minor work like a new RD, and a single ring crank for the 1x9 setup.

I had done a frame mounted cargo once a few years back



It no longer is with us because I replaced with a three wheeled cargo and cut this bike up for parts

My roommate and I recently acquired two tall bikes... I'll get some pictures tomorrow (hopefully). Too bad they are already falling apart from too much bunny hopping.

This bike was posted on page 27, and then re-done and posted on page 33. I was asked to donate a fork for a bike that was getting auctioned off. It had to be a certain style, and the only one I had was on this bike......SO, that fork is gone, and now this bike needed a new one. I put a new pair of apes on and changed the rear rack. I used a spaceliner rack, and another spaceliner rack for the supports on the front. The fork is from a 27 inch Sterling road bike, with a 24 inch quick release rim...The third pic shows a Hawthorne, both frames are the same size. I think I'm "finally" done with this bike.

Thank you for showing me what the graphics on my Flyer's chainguard should look like! The tank from it's Murray sister is truly inspired!

Rollfast, I'll save you the trouble of going back to page 27. This is what the bike looked like when I got it.

What a beast of a bike... was the idea to build something that could handle Surly Pugsley-sized wheels?

no. those tire are only 26x2.34. Pugsley tires would not fit this frame. i had to true the rear wheel just to get the 26x2.35 to fit without rubbing. i just wanted a cool mountain bike that is unique and cool and worked good. so far it has not broke so when summer comes around i plan on sand blasting and painting it. still need to customize the front derailer so that it can shift into the 24t gear and then i think it will be unstoppable.

These are the Ferrari of there day. NOT made to last, NOT made to jump, NOT made to be cheap... Made to go fast. I got mine as a "no one will beat our prices" deal.
I'm really hoping your trolling.
eBay them. You will see that EVEN a LITTLE F*ck*D up, they will still bring cash on the auction market. Riders want to get that LAST good race out of them before they grenade.

Uhhhh.. sounds like they are not for me. I already ruined my shimano rear wheel in only 5 months. And I had never heard of those before. They just look really awesome!

IT happens I guess. Thanks for not thinking I was a d*ck.

They were called Spinergy Rev-x. Then Rev-X Lite, and Rev-X Rox, and so on. They were great wheels with an awesome warranty. They break you get new ones! As the carbon slowly gave out, the wheels broke and the company started going broke.
