    new build, what do you think?

    Thought I'd ask the experts on this & show off my new build at the same time. This is a little different - not a track bike, but probably all utility! I wasn't sure what ratio I wanted, so I have 12 to choose from here. I got the mismatched wheels right & did a chop job on the risers, front brake (safety first, right?). I'd like to know what color I should paint it and does anyone know where I can get 24" deep Vs!


    Go easy on me, I'm not an experienced builder!

    I call it the Redneck Fix

    How did you fix it? Did you weld the freewheel?

    It looks like a beast. For a ride like this, I would just sticker bomb it and maybe go for scraper bike wheels instead of deep Vs. That will surely bring you mad honeys.
