Well the Loki is finally done! **lots of pix**

I must say it is extremely tough and it feels really comfortable, n not too heavy.

I had to buy a new headset, seatpost, and front derailleur though.

What the. On pricepoint, the Sette Shadow looks EXACTLY like this loki. Hm. It has basically the same welding, like the seat/top tube gussts, and the rear stays. It has the same 7005 material also. Is my loki somehow this same knockoff model?

Yeah, it's possible that it's almost the same frame. Most house brand stuff is not made in-house, but rather rebadged stuff.

On a related note, many cheaper frames are all the same in that they come out of the same Asian production line with different stickers. For example, Leader Bike and Nashbar brand frames are the same thing, just with different paint and stickers.

Im trying learn how to do a proper wheelie. I feel there's this threshold at which you know your in that right length above the ground to continue a semiconstructed wheelie. Its pretty cool. I managed to get off the gound about 10 inches, and travel for about 7 feet. Whats a common and effective gear ratio?

Though I am beginning to feel a bit nervous about the massively cheap fork taking unnecessary hits like that. Perferrably cracking the crown. I think I need a hella better fork.

I think you should replace that fork as soon as you can. I've had some friends that were seriously hurt when their Stance flow blew up/snapped on them.
