    Heck no, who needs a rear brake. Actually, I just need a new cable, was too late when I got to that point.

    What happened to the one that was on the bike in last week's double brake lever pic? Your bike looks very shiny and well maintained, not the type that would go through brake cables.

    Cable was fraying pretty bad. It better look shiny I cleaned it yesterday. Pics are decieving though, the frame is scatched up on the downtube and on the stays and has a case of cable rub going. Everything is in running order, I take pride in having it run like new.

    This has nothing to do with the bike but is the car in the background yours? I've always liked that type of car ever since i was 5.

    That bike looks like it hasn't been out of the garage. Is that what the picture is suppose to show? I thought you were a big crash and burner? That cog looks big, what size is it?

    Last week it was set as a double lever due to my left hand being injured due to my second crash of the season. Got it set back to a normal set up now. Been staying upright alot lately, frame is scratched, just isn't noticeable yet.

    Hot damn! Is it for trials, or trails?
    And what gearing did you choose?

    You build nice bikes. Tensioner is way tucked in, not enough O's in smoooth.

    Why even run the tensioner if you've got sliding dropouts?

    You nailed it on the head, he's a stickler about the wheelbase.

    Looks good man, what seat are you running?

    I just prefer a shorter wheelbase than a long wheelbase.

    The seat is a brooklyn machine works saddle.
