Create a free Photobucket account. When you upload pictures, the upload process will automatically resize them to a large but more web-friendly size. It also has a cool interface for one-click copying of the link for imbedding the photo in your post.

i took the initiative to use the back of a white garage door, leave the chain in the gear it was in on my last ride, and not clean off the bike. the cranks are strategically placed to bother you, and the stickers are still on the bike!

as you can see the hubs are a sweet pink color, the rear and has an awesome dropout system. it has horizontal dropouts, that need one of two different derailluer hangers, one for single speed and one for geared, i guess the first one isn't actually a derailluer hanger but thats okay. i went for an 11 mile ride today, 3 miles there rode some trails, then fooled around on some jumps in the parking lot, and rode thee miles back a different way than i came.

BTW how can i take off the stickers easily?

still need to remove the reflectors on one of the pedals, the other pedal both broke off today during my ride and i didn't notice, maybe i will find them tomorrow when i ride.

It's a "tapered bushiing nut" and it looks like it's about to back out and fall off. Hurry, get the locktite!

Check this documentation for a good exploded view of the lower roller assembly (upper middle):

http://www.sram.com/_media/techdocs/...guide-e-r6.pdf

Bike's looking good; I like the color (maybe because it's BLUE). I think every bike should have a dropout setup like that - -very slick.

Getting the stickers off may not be an option if they are under the clearcoat.

the only other bike with dropouts like that, that i know of is the transition trail or park, and theres is simpler.
