To really set it off, go #2, swap the striped seat for a solid white one and a purple cable over the blue one. THAT would be nice.
I could do that. I painted the seat myself, so sanding it down real quick and painting it solid white wouldn't be a big deal, but I noticed the white plastic gets dirty really fast. Oh well, nothing more paint can't fix. And I got that Ody linear cable for freeeeee. I had a white regular Animal cable.
just for the heck of it, here's my street bike, which is probably going to get some knobbies and track time soon.
After building a flatland bike and wishing I had something a little lighter and more streetable, I put this bike together with some new stuff and some old parts lying around.
2007 Solid Killing Machine 20.75" frame
Rockstar 14mm fork
Old rusty Schwinn bars. Cut down .5" on each side
2000 Dyno stem
Odyssey Midway rims laced to G-Sport Homer hubs. 4 cross, under 3rd, with odyssey black, racing spokes.
Odyssey 13T freewheel
Odyssey Elm street rear tire
Dyno stock front tire
Eastern Stealth cranks 175mm

Snafu lite 7075 Sprocket 36T
Snafu Conrad seat post clamp
Odyssey PACT chain tensioners
Animal Edwin grips
DC 990 rear brake
DK linear brake cable
Walgoose seat and seat post.
Pretty nice, kinda old schoolish compared to today's standards too. A 5+ pound frame, Midways, a freewheel, big sprocket, and one of those seat post things. Don't see them too often.
hehe. compared to the bike i built before it (pictured below) the killing machine is the bike of the future! i did the midways because they were cheap and i am fat, the cheap homers necessitated the freewheel and bigish sprocket.
2000 Dyno Slammer. I built this one for flatland stuff.
Profile SS cranks
KHE geisha lite 9T / Sun big city rear wheel
Dyno stock wheel on the front
St Martin 26T sprocket
Odyssey twisted PC pedals
Odyssey griswald grips
Odyssey bar mitzvah bars
