Oy, give me my seatpost back!

Looks like an awsome set of stuff. All that would look great on my bike =).

Can't wait till my b-day, may get a similar set of stuff. Not sure the grips, or single speed kit can wait that long though, the rest of the stuff is pretty much the list of what I want to upgrade next though.

Nice brakes and grips

the metal lock on is coated in rubber, thus being hidden. looks like i works like most others tho. hope the pics help...i know one is rather blurry.

Your grips are blurry...you need to return them for some sharper ones.

so i got the bug to put everything together lastnight. like all projects there were problems. 2 major and 1 minor.

problem #1 i forgot to order a freaking saddle
problem #2 the prebled rear brake leaked where the hose attached to the caliper. guess i get to do my first brake bleed.

problem #3 i mounted the rear tire backwards


anyways here are a couple of pics.

And Mentals too - - very cool! Transitions definitely deserve Mentals. Which ones are those? They look like the stainless ones but appear to be powdercoated.

And, hey, you may be OK on the brakes if the banjo just weeped a little.
