a bike's a bike.
nice job, and congrats.
Sweet! I'll bet it's one heavy electroforged mothersmucker.
Great! Now post it on Ebay with a $175 "buy it now".
I have found Jesus, he was behind the sofa the whole time.
you might want to look into getting clips/straps, for stopping/not getting killed by your pedals reasons
best $25 bike I've seen. needs more reflectors.
or at least put some brakes on it since you're trusting your life to f-ing locktite. or just drink a lot of grape flavored mad dog 20/20 out of a paper bag after a under-bridge nap.Originally Posted by go4broke44
It's "rustique"...very nice for a $25 job. I like the miss-matched reflectors on the wheels!
brakes are your friends.
seriously, i know that some folks ride brakeless with platform pedals, but that's either nuts, incredibly core, or both, depending on your outlook.
did you cut off the kickstand housing, or the kickstand itself, leaving the mechanical assembly?
if you did the latter, maybe I'll divulge my secrets of removing the entire assembly from the housing.
Would that be the C-clamp secret, Ryan?
Cabana, that was an expensive tube. I've had a few of these-so you got the weight down to about 35?
ok so take the money you saved and take a typing course. Jokes. but seriously good deal for a good bike
Haha, if anyone else would know it would be you, SBL!
Well, the way I did it was this: I found a washer that could slip over the kickstand but was smaller than the housing, so it rested against that circular plate. Then either use a big c-clamp or channel locks to press that circular plate down into the assembly and while its pressed in, pull the pin on the bottom of the housing out with a pair of needlenose pliers. If you don't have a washer as such, you can use a small nut or something against it.
After the pin is out, everything should slide out.
nice find, I want one!
