    how about you sell that snowboard and stop buying rediculous lamps.

    all you need is one bulb.

    Hey, that's practically done. You can make it rideable for next to nothing... ****ty chains and tyres are cheap and you can slap on a cheapo pedal with toe clips. Cogs don't cost all that much, either.
    Not that you necessarily should, I'm just saying that if you're broke and itching to ride it, cheap/used/borrowed parts could easily complete it.
    Oh, and congrats, it's pretty.

    I second that, snowboarding is overrated, and getting pretty corny.

    Tires and chains are overrated. Do it flintstone style.

    noting the use of a fisheye lens to shoot that photo, i somehow doubt selling the snowboard will be an option.

    Bad advice from what I've read on the forums. Cheap cog = increased chance of stripped hubs. I'd hate for that to happen to your build.

    Yeah. Of all places to try and save money, that isn't it. Dura ace cogs ~ $25. Cheapest stamped **** about $10.

    Really not worth it.

    Don't skimp on drivetrain parts. These are more important than any other parts of the bicycle.

    Thanks for all the offers on parts guys!

    But i feel like i've already put so much into this bike, I have to finish it the way I had originally intended to. So all i need is sylvan track pedals, mks clips and straps. a pair of soma everwears, dura ace cog, and supertype seatpost (the seatpost in the pic is actually a 26.6 and doesn't really fit in my 27.2 clamp) does anyone have any suggestions for a solid 3/32 chain, or will any chain do fine?

    Thanks for all the help guys
