Because I broke my right hand and continued to ride, so I just put my lever on the left.

I liked it a lot better there so I bought a front lever.

I've made a few changes here and there since getting this about 8 months ago. I've been riding flat in my basement to pass the winter blues.

The LTD clocks in at 31 pounds. When I decide on what cranks to get, I can toss those fugly snafu p.o.s.

What the heck -- took a picture yesterday to offer it as a trade. Poor thing doesn't get ridden much these days... Macneil Ruben with Odyssey stuff. To answer another thread, the oldest part is probably the circa-1990 Profiles that were made for and marketed by GT.

Does living in Australia have anything to do with the brakes on the left?

Noooo, WTP lives in Canada, he just has a crippled right hand that makes using a mechanical brake difficult.

Its a hub made by madera, which is a sub company of profile.
It uses the same internals as a profile mini.

Good Eye, WTP. Gotta get some batteries in em and see if they work.

Went into the LBS to check out DK General Lees. He saw that used Haro and said that is the bike he wanted. Way less than a new bike, and I had them true the wheels and check out the rear hub, as it was a bit tight feeling.

your bike looks weird for some reason, like higher in the front, or maybe its just the seat that looks low.

yeah i like it that way. i got a bigger tire in the front than the back and i like my bars up high and im mexican so i like to sit low to the ground. also this frame has a low top tube which most fly frames have and i also modded my seat clamp so it sits lower(if you look at the picture with the seat i filed my seat clap so it fits the contour of the top tube)
