    Considering the the sexy beast now has fenders, 2 brakes (well, it is a s/s) and flipped chopped off drops I wasn't really concerned about the aethetics.

    Edit: It really is sexy now.

    Cool so you chopped & flopped the drop's = bum bars = dead sexy, especially with grips.

    Once I get it all together I'll post it in it's new incarnation. Should look good, black rims and tires, new (well from Keiths dollar bin) zero rise stem. And got some nice poppy red rust paint to touch up the dings from the mean people who owner her. Really liking this frame. Next up is to get a fixed hub that can matchup with the cranks to get a good chain line. Soon but not soon enough.

    And can anyone help me and tell me how to post a full size photo? I tried and all I ever get are the little thumbnails.

    Great question Iíve yet to figure this out. But apparently it can be done via flickr Iíve only been able to get thumbs as well!

    Also itís great to put a bunch of stuff together & get something that works.

    you building your wheelset?
    btw, its the BB that gets you a good chainline. you can run essentially any fixed hub/crank as long you have the correct BB spindle length.

    and I keep all my photos on photobucket.
    I can get pretty decently good sized photos to show up on BF.
    physics hertz.

    It is 105db, small, easy to mount, thumb switch, takes regular batteries

    Airzound is apparently 115db, but way bigger and more of a pain to mount.

    Awww..

    At least you had brought your fender.

    I woke up this morning.. looked outside.. thought "it's going to rain", then continued to leave my apartment without my fender. Of course the second I'm outside it begins spitting.. and after work it was just a soppy mess..

    I had to do the 10km/h ride all the way home and I still got juicy.

    The only good thing about the rain and bikes is that your drivetrain is ultra smooth.

    Not if your rear hub shell is narrow like mine. Even with the all the spacers on one side it's not enough. And there's nothing I can do crankside anymore. Also I need straight profile cranks.

    I have the shortest spindle I can get in the bb now. It's an old MTB I want to fix. I need a 135 hub I believe. My axiom hub I am using now has a perfect chainline and I assume that a fixed hub the same size will match up chain wise.

    No, not building my own wheel. My mechanical abilities end about there. It is on the agenda though. Will try to have Keith do it.

    Gah! The bike I bought on eBay last week still hasn't been shipped out yet! The seller is an older guy who I think suffers from some health problems, so I cannot get too upset about it but dammit, the anticipation of this is killing me!

    Bummer about the chainline, what size BB spindle do you think you need? I have a bunch that are sitting in a box, maybe one will work?

    I bought the smallest one at Cavern that would fit w/out the crainring hitting the chainstays. It's a 42 front on the outer ring with a few mm to go before grinding the chainstay. The crank and bb in give it a perfect line with the hub on now. I have a thread on cog on the freewhell part of the hub and need to find a fix hub the same width. Thanks though for the thought.

    i would think a fixed hub built around a 135mm spaced rear would be the best bet; i believe that would give you a 52mm chainline as opposed to a 42 as per normal track hub specs. i forget who makes one (phil of course, surly, who else?). check 63xc.com for more of the fixed off road stuff.

    as a side note, pyze: i managed to crack my 9" henkels pro about 1/2 way through the blade today (at least i noticed it today). what the hell!? it's a $140 blade! you ever cracked a knife like that?

    I like fenders and I like the wood ones but they are pretty pricey; Curbside has them and I remember thinking they were very expensive, like close to 100$ or something crazy like that. I've always wondered about moustache bars and I think I will outfit them on the new ride, but more like this:
