    That's for work? That is teh hawtness! But you didn't follow the rules of ss/fg pic posting and photograph it in front of a grafitti covered wall and show an alternate shot of the chainline.

    no, thats just the way its setup at the moment, I wanted to start there since the frame already has you way back over the rear wheel anyway, so far only a ride around the block to make sure everything was tight.........spacers for the stem are coming off pronto, and the saddle needs raised a bit and moved back a bit, other than that I dont know yet, usually takes months for me to get a bike dialed in

    so far it feels like a razor compared to my steel bikes running 27 1 1/8" slicks, thing is light as a feather too, I can fling it all over the road, feels a tad undergeared too, might have to put a 52/15 or 52/16 on it, we'll see

    well I figured since it appears im gonna be doing this for like forever, I might as well build a bike suited to the job instead of converting one like I usually do, I dont do grafitti wall shots though-----those neighborhoods round here I pass thru but do not stop in, its bad enough here with dudes getting shot(had one next door last week)

    it was $274.xx shipped, and they sent me the wrong frame, I ordered the older model, they sent me the newer one which is $50 more so I didnt complain, although I did have to get a new headset for it and the fork isnt drilled for a brake and it lacks a rear brake bridge too

    all brand new parts, built like that one, its about $530 total

    Maybe if we get them together, we can get a discount!

    Gotta love chucksbikes. They have some insane deals once in a while. I picked up a Miche Supertype seatpost for $40 last month. The usually go for $70-$80 elsewhere.

    Beautiful!

    Never heard of that site - holy cow there are some great deals there. I had to click off of it before I got too tempted to buy stuff I don't have the money for!

    Good Lord those lugs are beautiful and the detailing is nice, but I'm not feeling the colors.
