Started Painting my new frame.

I don't need any painting tips. But I decided recently not to get new bike, and instead, get a frame and build one up. Heres what I got. I got a late 90s Gary Fisher race frame, for $10 at a garage sale. It was black, but the clearcoat had worn off. So I stripped it. I filled the dents in he frame with some bondo and its ready to the primered and painted. Heres a Question, whats a good fork, and wheelset with 3/8" axles.

you'll mess up your axle if you try and grind with a 3/8 axle and if you do any heavy riding or dirt probably destroy the back wheel while your at it

I think that it's relatively obvious from this guy's posts that he doesn't do any sort of "heavy riding", whatsoever.

That and the fact that he should know by now that both his questions have been answered numerous times.

I'll use it until, I realise that I was an idiot by using a race frame for freestyle. Don't question my methods, I have my reasons for using this frame. I have everything I need for it, and the fact that V brakes are easy to set up. I might race it, only time will tell. If I lived near a track i'd probably race. I have all the parts, to put it together. I just need paint.

Never mind. I just painted it and gave it to a friend of mine. Got my new bike so I don't need it.

Everyone needs more than 1 bike. We've only got about 8 right now, so I'm thinking it's time to get something new.
