    lol. That's what I just said to my monitor!

    Why did you repaint it so the new green paint looks old?

    Get new tires, those look rather dry rotted.

    I think you'll want brakes on it too if it is for SS use.... or maybe not

    well, tested the generator weds night, works perfectly...and i got a BONUS.
    since my rim still wobbles a bit, i can set the gen to "hit-n-miss" so i get a "flashing "effect!
    worked so nice i had a car honk at me
    best part is: i cant feel hardly any drag on my wheel when i ride
    will get a pic of the semi final ride tomorrow

    trx1. Perhaps confusion at your thread would have been minimal if you showed a before and after of the frame that you were intending to build up. (In this case, the green one.) The heart of a bicycle is the frame and using that as the center for your before picture would have made a lot more sense to me.
    - Solo Attack: When you attack, let the sprint group lead you out. You take no points. But when they sit up, you put your head down and hold threshold. Remember: When you see Jesus you are still about 2 minutes from blacking out. Hang on.
