    Finished building my first single speed

    This was my spring/summer build.

    Vintage Raleigh Grand Prix, stripped and repainted flat black with some cool decals (Shred The Gnar, Bikeskull, Pentagrambike, etc).
    Nitto stem with black MTB flat bar, clipped short for squeezing through traffic, with Odessy Aaron Ross pink computer grips.
    Jalco GX460 rear wheel with Shimano cassette MFG SSK-2 single speed conversion 16t.
    Lightweight aluminum front wheel, not sure of the brand.
    Velo slim padded seat.
    Original 52t chainwheel with nice pedals and toe straps.

    I'm going to take it to the skate park later and carve some bowls. Gonna be sick, breh

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    if you can ride that bike with the seat so high your in need of much taller frame..... breh
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    The seat is obviously too high if you have to tilt it like that to make it comfortable. And if it's not too high, then the frame is too small. The chain is extremely flabby and the handlebars looks stupid. Any what with repainting the frame, what for?

    Adjust your chain slack and put your toe strap on the back slot of the pedal, brah.

    yo the seat angle is a little funny

    other than that looks solid.. I suggest you get some Oury grips, and a brooks saddle, and match your tires to your grips.

    peace
