    -only differences now is that the front fork has a red fade from the dropouts and the stays have a silver fade from the dropouts to about half way up the stays to try and cover up the fact that i have 2 differnt colored wheels.
    -also it has a gatorskin on the front now.
    -2 different crank arms
    -700c in the back, 27x1 1/4 in the front
    -matte black garage paint job with copper leaf highlights
    -currently has drops from my fuji track on it
    -suicide hub with lots of red locktite
    -45x15 with the other outer chainring still attached
    -braze ons left on, some are taped over with gaffers tape now

    Oh hells ya. Here's White Sputter:



    I equate a good beater to having sex with one of my college roommates. She was a farmgirl from Texas who walked like the terminator (Arnold, not Kristanna) and made pizzas with canned pork. I'm assuming if she ever wanted to have sex with someone she's just throw them against a wall and say, "Alright, let's get to this." In that sense, a good beater doesn't have time for any of that "bling" or even "matching crank arms" nonesense - it's too busy getting **** done.

    The guy who I got the campy cranks from was aghast that I put them on a conversion. My old conversion is soon to be long gone, and the campy cranks have moved onto a real track bike.
