Not rats, mice. Duh. I greased all my bearings in my BB(unsealed) and now it doesn't squeek near as bad. I'm also getting a new chain because mine is shot.

That may have been the most dirtbaggish thing ever said on the forums.

FINALLY got my brakes. Over a month of hell, shouldn't have been this difficult but I guess it payed off. Better pics when it's not raining out.



Tomarrow I'll be ordering a few last things. Tree headset cap, new set of ODI's, salmon kool-stop brake pads, and maybe a white cable. My crappy LBS only had black. I had to settle for a chrome brake lever too, but now that I got it I really like the look. Any idea if the Fly hop-up kit would work on mid bb? It says spanish, but I don't really see the difference. I know it doesn't do anything, but looks good :]

Ask your favorite MirraCo flow rider...

EDIT: Federal, that is such a nice bike. Congratulations.

Yea they do, it's a bit obnoxious. It took a little while to get used to them because I feather my brakes sometimes when manualing, and when I tap them it brings me right down. I got it though. They're nice brakes, but I don't see how they got $75 as a price.
