    Pretty nice, except for the wheels, and the flatland piece. You don't want something flatland for a street and dirt bike, and just not a fan of the skyway wheels.

    Not many are. I used to use them on my Hutch & had no problems (unlike spoke wheels).

    What's so wrong with the forks? Lifetime warranty. I'm a smooth rider. Wouldn't the Dirt fork be alot heavier???

    You still might have some problems with the forks although it has a lifetime warranty. If you buy a good fork, they will be about the same weight (although it shouldn't matter that much), and will be much much stronger.

    What wheels then?

    My second choice was Odyssey Hazard hubs, Odyssey Duralectra rims, 14ga. Stainless spokes, all black...would that be better (better be for 3x the cost!)?

    The heavy duty drive train (chain/sprockets) is not because of grinding...I've broken too many chains, thus now want something that wont snap under the torque as easy...

    What's so wrong with King headsets? I thought they were tough? I've heard of problems with the Solid's, thus King was the only obvious choice left....???

    But hey, I'll buy the Odyssey wheels...

    The King is a waste of money; I destroyed mine in about three weeks, and I'm not even that hard on headsets (ex: my Pig lasted me through three different frames over five or six years). The Solid is definitely the way to go; anyone who says otherwise is probably one of those morons that's too stupid to figure out that the collar loosens when you tighten the grub screw, instead of vice-versa.

    On a sidenote, I just read the setup right now, and I have this to say: R-E-T-A-R-D-E-D. Namely the reflective vinyl, the 44t sprocket, the Tuff Wheels, and the double-bolt seatpost clamp.

    I have a vinyl cutter, scanner, signage software to cut the vinyl as I please, more vinyl cutting experience than you have riding experience.

    44/16 gearing has been my favorite since '76.

    A seatpost clamp is a seatpost clamp. I like the looks of it.

    You have more vinyl cutting experience than I have riding experience. Wow. It doesn't change the fact that you're making your bike reflective.

    Well, it's 2006 now. Seeing as how it appears that you're making a freestyle bike, not a race bike, there's no reason to have such monster gearing.

    The seatpost clamp is overkill; the upper half of the clamp is deadweight.

    I don't understand why some people refuse to get smaller gearing. I can understand not wanting to have as low as 23-8(or 22-8?), or even 25-9/28-10. But, 44-16 is out of the question. It makes your bike lighter stronger, and it LOOKS better I think.

    I have no interest in doing freestyle. The Gyro is to keep the cables closer to the bike so they don't snag on trees.

    edit: Snag on trees? Just cut your cable short, then.

    If you use common sense you can avoid getting hit by a car.

    I don't understand this whole thread. First, Prozakk: why do you care if all these guys like your bike? Build what you want, replace what breaks and enjoy it. Second, why is everyone ****ting all over dude's part selection? I understand he was asking for opinions, so comments like "I don't think you'll be happy with Skyways as you would be with well-made spoke wheels" seem more in order than "ur bike sounds teh ghey". If wants to cover it in vinyl, why not? He's clearly not 15 (riding since 1976?), so the looking cool factor is probably not as high on his priority list as being seen at night. So what? And if Mat Hoffman started riding around with reflective stickers on his bike, I'd bet a bunch of you guys would think it was sick as hell and run off to the shops to buy some. I guess I'm saying you can give the guy advice without pissing all over him, and likewise 'zakk shouldn't really give a crap. Build it, ride it, love it. Bikes are a personal thing, bro.

    Paul...good reply. Excellent!

    I only care to build it as good as possible. Someone dissing safety only makes me laugh. Medical expenses aren't cheap.

    I can cut any design I please in vinyl, and I'm sure the young crowd on my 'hood will drool & want me to cut them some. Not that it matters.

    I do care about others opinions when it comes to better parts though...considering the greenbacks being shelled out. I want a bike that's tough...period.
