My Latest Score! With Pics

Here is my latest score. Its a 2001 GT Vertigo with some upgrades.

New Black GT Handlebars
New FSA GT 3 piece crank set
New GT Launch pad seat
All new brake levers and cables
New GT pedals
New GT CNC Aluminum sprocket 43t


Overall its a pretty sick bike imho. Im not sure im keeping the detangler but for now, it stays.

Yea you don't have to worry about flipping it back in a manual because it weighs a ton,and you will get a good workout peddaling that bulldozer
I have one too that I fished out of the garbage,it is in nice shape I cannot believe someone threw it out.
