I'm double nutted in the back and I'm running a FBM hub guard so it should be fine.

That looks just like my old hub. Except that was black so it didn't look as good

I just got most of my new parts, except I was sent the wrong seat and my post and grips aren't here yet. I also didn't get my barends but that's okay. I just slapped on the new bars, pedals, and tires. My first thoughts were that the Scerbo bars are huge. I need to cut them first thing in the morning. My second thought was how smooth two ASM's roll. Amazing. I still didn't really get to ride.

Just an update on my Blend LTD. Since getting it on July 4th...

Cut the bars.
Changed to a RHD
Changed to DK Iron Cross grips
Changed to a Haro fork (want 990 mount)
Added Suelo front brake
Changed to a Odyssey Hazard Lite 48 front wheel
Changed to a Odyssey Hazard Lite 48 rim with a KHE Reverse hub for the rear wheel

That's about it for now...

Hmmm... I just cut my bars a bit. I cut 1 and 3/4 inches off each side of my new Scerbo bars. I couldn't even ride it at the width they came stock.

I actually tried them today. Surprisingly, I can almost land some. However, I want to learn to hop into them.

He's trying to go with the theme of this thread and not post bike checks.

I have no idea what cranks they are, they're heavy but they work.

Also, I have the shadow chain and I'm not really a fan, but I need to run it because of my pinner ass drop outs.
