Looks good. The seat looks like it's at a rather uncomfortable angle though.

I also use the bike for commuting back and forth to work and school, and that just seemed the most comfortable to me while sittin down

I have a set of chrome profile cranks, they looked like crap on my bike so I sandblasted them to a raw finish, now they look good.

Cool cranks. I would have gotten the black ones but if you like silver those are good.

My friend likes running his bars like that too, it feels like crap IMO. But he can't manual anyway and he doesn't even try to get better at riding, so it doesn't really hurt anything.

I used to have a set of redline monster cranks, I sold them though, but during the year and a half I had them I didnt have any seriously trouble with them besides them creaking and having to be tightend once in a blue moon, but that happens to pretty much all cranks. They were pretty strong, I never bent them but they were heavy and if you are a hard rider I wouldnt really recommend them.

No one really cares if he chooses to keep them like that, we are only suggesting something because running your bars like that makes your front end, and steering feel ********.

I dont personally, but it helps your riding if you put them a little farther back...

And you didnt have to post three times, you could have fit that all into one...
