    Kuwahara = complete

    Finally, my new bike is done. Kuwahara frame, suzue promax to open pros. Sugino 75's with Shimano BB and MKS pedals. Vetta racelite saddle with generic seatpost. Nitto B123's, nitto stem and campy headset. 49x19. Thanks for all the help everyone.

    Cool. But very flashy. Make sure you keep it under lock & key!

    Oooooohhh, radioactive green glow. Wow. Is that to scare away thieves? The front emblem should be a hazard symbol.

    South Philly Bike Gang (it's a joke), inspired by the skull and crossbones with a touch of the pretzel factory. I know I live in Ca, but have friends in Philly.

    Nice bike. I found the Racelite saddle to be quite uncomfortable on 15+ mile rides. Could be the way I was holding myself. Switched to a Selle Italia Turbo saddle (when they were on Nashbar) and have noticed a marked improvement, but still not what I want.

    Still, nice bike.

    I think he meant that the bar tape on one side of the bar goes up higher than on the other side.

    That color is intense, did you find the frame locally or did you have it imported?

    I bought it off of Craigslist, but I think the guy I bought it from got it from eBay prior to that. Anyone know where it came from before him? (I know some of you saw it on eBay).
