    You strip 1/3 of the paint in frustration?

    me, the only problem i can see with a left side drive is if you lift it over your right shoulder.
    have:ea50 flats, black, light, stiff.
    144 bcd 3/32" 49t sugino track chainring, possibly 75.

    want: risers, light, stiff, 1", black if that can be
    144 bcd 46t or 47t chainring any kind or width

    Is that stripped paint or just an awesome early 90s fade?

    I've seen 2 of these frames before. One I bought for a friend off ebay and he wrecked it and crinkled the down tube. The other came into the shop with a guy that was like "what's suntour?"

    Apparently they were affordable bikes, considering the sweet (or not so sweet, dependin on your tastes) paintjob. I personally think they look cool.

    You also forgot to mount a tire. I've done all of the above before. I've even mounted cranks kangaroo style.

    You guys need to see a close up of this crazy marble swirl paintjob to appreciate it. Willing to indulge us, Dolface?

    what sashae said.

    this used to be my crit bike, hence the numerous nicks and biffs in the paint.

    and for chuck norris:

    Is there any problem with keeping the drive on the left side? As long as the wheel is fixed it should be fine shouldn't it?

    your pedals tend to unscrew and the cog and lockring are threaded the wrong way...

    Fixed, it should work fine. But you might find your freewheel to be a bit low geared.

    Very cool frame. Reminds me of a mountain bike my brother had when we were kids. Black frame, with about 1/3 of it painted hot green that faded to the black with kind of a speckled paint look.

    It blows my mind that something that facile was once considered a purebred crit bike..and so few years ago too.

    dolface*,

    Sorry you geeked up the build on this one. So the Ironman logo clashes with the drapes. ***** happens. Frankly, I don't care at the moment. Just finsihed having wild, crazy monkey sex with the gf and and am not in the right state of mind to worry about such trivial stuff.

    p.s.-have nice day.

    *=rule #1...don't sweat the little stuff. Rule #2...It's all little stuff.
