I'm not a big fan of the 4x lacing, especially with 20" 48h wheels, mainly due to the high cross over leading to more broken spokes than necessary, but it looks to be a relatively lightweight set up that only needs a good chromoly frame to make me happy

Well i managed to bend my forks without doing any damage to the rim or any of the spokes so they seem to be holding up really well if other peoples have been breaking

The price total of everything thats on the bike right now is somewhere in the 700-750 range but with the new parts thats goin to be easily bumped up to 800 at least ... Dont ask my why I spent so much on this bike because honestly I couldnt tell you. I guess it was just the passion of building something that ran like a champ and well I succeeded. And if you were wondering I spent a weekend that I was grounded spray painting the frame forks and handle bars I think it came out pretty good. Any opinions would be nice good or bad everyone thinks differently.

I ended up spending $1000 or so on mine, so don't feel bad about it. It came out great and I love it, you feel the same way, so it makes it wort it.

The guy who designed that frame was my councler at woodward. Great bike. Yours looks really nice too. Is that a tree sproket?

jamie is a great guy, i've been pretty good friends with him for a long long time, and his frame is definitely great- in fact it's my second one, and went back to it after riding a T1 for awhile.

yea, 30t tree sprocket.

it has to be under a certain size, so put it in the paint program, scale it down, save it as a different file, just in case, and right click on it go to properties and if its the right amount of megabytes u can post it
