    respacing and breaks?

    Heres my questions.

    i got my badazz Watanbe Kirin frame (WOOT!) yesterday and did my buildup today but i wanted to us my wheels of of my specalized sirrus but they were too big so i had to spred out the rear forks to fit the wheel but then i saw that there was no plac to put my breaks so no im fuxed and now im worried i ruined my fram (expensiv ****!)

    so did i ruin my frame and where can i put my dumb breaks on? ther arent any holezcan i drill some holez?

    What you need is some cash.

    Here's what you've got to do:

    Step 1: Collect underpants
    Step 2: ???
    Step 3: Profit!
    NERDS!!!!!

    Hey veganaise. My suggestion is to not drill holes on that nice killer frame and send that bike my way. Then I can tell you all about the sick moves I pulled on it. This is the only way you'll learn.
