Looks good but whats with the BB welds. They look so smooth, non beaded or anything. Then again I've no knowledge of how welding goes with steel.

I'm thinking of getting a geek house in 2006. I have heard a lot of good things about Union-Street though.

yah the chain is made out of half links that is because he is using a 25t in the front and in the back he is using something close to a 9 it just makes it easier on the chain less wear and all

Well... since jensonusa once had the frame on closeout for $150 + shipping, good luck getting that much for it.
