    Name my bike!



    Cobbled together from parts given to me, parts I had, cheap parts and a whole lotta Foo love, here she is. Thanks so much for all the advice, encouragement, love, and, of course, the frame!

    I know she's not done yet, but this is a mock-up. I still need front derailluer, cables, bar tape, and to cut down the stem. Yes, her tires are mismatched, but only because Specialized doesn't seem to measure their tire size before slapping labels on them.

    I think she's gorgeous. My completely unoriginal name choice is "Black Beauty." I know you guys can come up with better.

    Whatcha got?

    once you go black, you can't go back.
    is that a sausage in your pants or are you happy to see me?

    something from the offspring?

    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Ok, so I forgot you guys don't read posts... Just thread titles and look at the pics...

    It'll get cut down once I get it all sorted out, if you look at it closely, you'll notice the bottom race isn't seated. This is just a mock-up.

    Don't go off in a hissy fit. Nobody said anything about your mismatched tires. Geeze.
