Those are good pics, I like the background more in the first one but the bike looks better in the second one. A mix between the two would be ill.

And they will probably only last 1/4 as long and kill your shins. If you are that worried about weight, spend $11 and get yourself some Odyssey Twisted PC pedals.

Also, they'll last just as long if not longer. They're Syncros Mentals.

I know they are different, but would the spacers be different too? That's all the hop-up kit is, spacers and the inner-spacer.

The inner spacer would be the same but the outer ones wouldn't cover all of your bearing so it would look messed up.

Pretty much.

I'd actually like to line a mid bb up side by side with a Spanish to see how much different they are in size...

It's a nice-looking bike. If you take off the gyro and that 'Launch' sticker, it will look even sweeter.

You could use a blow dryer, or you could just peel them up and wipe down the sticky stuff.

Just rip it off best you can, then if it leaves residue, spray some WD-40 on it, and wipe her clean.

If your brake cable was any longer, i'd ask to see your tripple whip videos.

I like the color. That DK sticker fooled me!
