    I like the monster frame gusset on that thing. It makes the bike look mean and ornery. Sweet parts. Nice build. Have fun.

    Love the bike, love the build. Something I don't understand is why Sun CR-18's? You went with a top notch boutique hub...and a cheap pinned rim? Not bashing...just confused.

    Exactly. Its my Urban bike. I am going to be using it for around town, minor trails, dirt parks, and some other stuff thats in no need of big nubbys.

    The reason I went with the Sun's is that I can change them later if I want but they are un under-rated rim. I have a friend who put over 5000 miles on his and is still rocking them. They might be a tad heavy but I am not too concerned with that for the needs of this bike.

    But different rims are in my "TO DO" Plans as well as putting on CK Bottom Brackets and different bars at some point.

    You need a mango Chris King BB

    the rear hub retails for more than the frameset! Good Job, interesting mix. I guess you are going for an urban basher type build?

    Me reviewing a cross country rim is kinda idiotic. I tend to make all things appear this way.Though I would recommend a "welded" joint versus pinned.

    Looks sweet. I agree on the rims. But I don;t think you'll have issues with it being a townie.

    LOL I will take his advice but I might not fallow it. I am not sure what I want to do next with this thing or start on a new build in a few months. I took it out for a 5 mile ride today and it kicked my ass. I need a few diffrent gears for the crank to swap out with from time to time depending on the ride I am planning for that day. But over all I am lovin the bike, and I love how the Chirs King hubs make dogs bark when I fly by

    ^ yep, basically run 2 chainrings and 2 cogs in back, you have to lossen the rear wheel and move the chain by hand so its basically still a single speed, but you can convert easily between 2 types of riding, the gear ratios have to use the same amount of chain (ie a 36x16 and a 32x20, dunno if those exact ratios would work but you get the idea)

    that surly cog chelbord posted a pic of is actually for a fixie, and you can't dingle a normal SS (that use bmx freewheels) but with hubs like the king that use a slider cog with spacers (thats how they work right?) you could put 2 on, actually you don't even always need 2 rings if you don't mind imperfect chainline, my SS road bike can take a 16-19 (maybe push 20) on the same chainlength, the dropouts are long enough

    36/16=2.25 everytime you pedal one revolution, the rear wheel does 2.25 revolutions

    32/20=1.6 everytime you pedal one revolution, the rear wheels does 1.6 revolutions
