The dropouts really don't look bad at all. I swear. Look at Snik's. And I ordered it off J&R's and it got to my house in like 4 days. I love it and I'll post pics of it this weekend. And I'll post the rest of the future bike check on Saturday too.

My bad, I forgot to post pics last weekend because I was at my dad's. If I remember, I'll do it this weekend. I already got scratches on it from putting it in the box a few times. There's big staples that sick out. Hopefully they come out with some wax.

Haha my bad. I keep forgetting. And yeah, I've had Profile's for a long time now. And I ordered Supercross forks, S&M T4 bars, Profile Acoustic stem, ODI Longneck Lock-Ons, and a Ciari headset on Friday. They should be here tomorrow.

Wait, nevermind I thought you were talking about cranks. But I'm ordering black Profile Mini's with blue Primo spokes and Black Sun Rhynolite XL's next. I'll definitely post a bike check when it's done. And a good starting bike for racing is an Intense or ugh...Redline. GT is still good too.
