    Thats how I roll.

    So, I have been getting a lot of flex in the back of my tallbike recently and decided to do something about it. I extended the dropouts a bit with 3/8 flat bar and welded up some 1" piping going up to the seatstays. Looks decent and makes the bike feel a lot stiffer to.

    Plus, if you look you can probably see my brake in my bottle holder, I snapped the perch so it's time for a new one.

    And I still have a shopping bag full of them, I was going to weld them to random parts of the frame but I didn't feel like filing the paint off to weld.

    You know, if you cropped the second photo to get rid of the garden hose, it would be a great picture to add to the BMX art thread...
