    respect!

    Yup, I'm the one doing it. Not on a fixie though, sorry guys. I'm trying to get a thread put up about the ride. I think it should be pretty good. Check it!

    As promised, here are my pics for the brand new "used to be a POS Schwinn" frame. I'm pretty impressed.

    It all started as this old guy. Ugg!


    Luckily when I bought it, it was already stripped down. So I could see the potential.


    Now, I jsut got it powder coated at spectrum,a dn painted on my own decals, adn she's off to the races. Now if I only had some wheels.

    Meet my new ZEROSPEED






    Hope you like it

    Ya, I made the stencils, and then painted it on. I hope they last, becasue they look awesome. Teh stripes are actually just white elecro-tape, but it looks good for now.

    Nice work, you took everything off with a blow-torch? How is the Spectrum job?

    That conversion project is turning out great. Really nice work so far. I look forward to seeing the finished bike.

    Cavit8, I was gone for a week - why you no love me no more?

    gah.. my urbanite fork keeps getting rustier and rustier.. any suggestions? Should I just say fuggit and try and figure things out when the weather improves? Or is there anything I should be doing now? I'd never planned on this bike staying particularly pretty, but having that pretty shiney fork get rust spots all over it isn't what I wanted either!

    Put some car wax on it.

    How old is the fork? The chromed steel shouldn't rust that easily.

    some rust removal tips from,
    jet sanchez: I got rust off of my chrome fork with a bit of furniture stripper.
    cavit8: Damp tinfoil (shiny side) will get the rust off. Then use some autowax on the fork to keep it shiny. It'll dry hard and help protect.

    d'oh. I totally forgot about those suggestions. I teh suck.

    0perator: because Richmond Hill is so affordable? Dude.. I'm from Newfoundland.. nowhere within 100km of the GTA is going to be that cheap.


    Hey, is anyone doing Critical Mass this Friday? I haven't gone since the Halloween ride, so I was considering it... Not totally sure if I can make it yet, but just wondering if anyone else is gonna be there.

    Oh hey, I forgot to mention it but you should really wax your frame before you build it up. I noticed that on my lighter coloured frame that scuffs really show up unless you wax it. I know you have a black frame but it still couldn't hurt, I have two black powder-coated frames (from Spectrum too) and they also got waxsed. I think I used Turtle car wax or something similar. Cheers.
