    iro mark v with blah blah seat post, stem, wheels, crankset.
    i wish....i just wish it were just a lil' more pimpish. like if i were to give it away to a poor person. cause i like poor people and everything but sometimes i just look at them and think to myself "god, are you ever poor. and because of it, you have bad taste in bikes. i should give you mine"

    but then i realize that poor people are hella lazy and stupid.
    im a ****ing idiot. well, im happy to admit it.

    Here's their site, although you're unlikely to find anything that resembles that on there:

    sorta. they arent nitto's but nitto makes an alum version.

    peep em at http://www.jitensha.com/

    the nitto version has no rise/drop like these un's.
    but any comfort bike bar flipped will do. just make sure they have a decent rise/drop

    It seems to me you were being sarcastic, and so I didn't say a word. And I am new.

    i'm generally of the "do what you want with your bike but that's not how i'd use it" camp. even with that there are exceptions (if i were slowly hoarding parts to build the bike up right, for instance). but yeah, i'm mostly just jealous.

    I would suggest normal chain rather than some ridiculously heavy bmx thing. If you're worried about breaking a chain put your mind to rest if you know how to properly install a chain.

    As long as the bosses and cables guides stay on, I think it's ok. Though something inside me feels wrong seeing REALLY nice roads bikes as converts.

    Still a sick bike.

    They have some at Velocipede, just picked one up in fact. They're not as shiny, though.

    Thanks. I took a second picture that showed the bike better, but this was by far the nicer of the two. It was about as nice a day for a ride as we've had in a month here in Seattle.

    I have that chain, its not alll that heavy, it looks super sweet, its the most adjustable chain on the market and damn its strong.

    Again, I gotta say it.

    Jealous!

    i agree that people should simply enjoy their bikes and do what they want with them. i just know that if i had that bike, i'd get much more enjoyment out of it as a road bike, and riding a fixed bike that was meant to be fixed. as long as he doesn't do anything to **** it up and prevent it from being turned back into the road machine it was meant to be, then no harm no foul.
