Finally had some time to get some pics of the bike in it's current incarnation. Started out seeing how much weight could be shaved with parts that I had on hand, but needless to say it sorta got out of hand. It's turned into a test bed/rolling resume as I explore different upgrade possibilites, with an eye on maybe getting into bike repair and customizing. I have adhered to a $30 limit on all parts, with most coming in well under.
The bike rides nice, the closest to a full sized bike of all the folders I've tried without mods. Very stable with no twitchyness. Folding is about like the Birdy and it's about 6lbs heavier.
