    Looks good. I'm sure those wheels are fine. I do not know what your winters are like but you may want fenders. Anyways, it's a cool bike.

    That's a nice lookin' bike. I'd definitely put some fenders on there if you're going to be taking it out in the slop during the winter. I really like the Sram road goodies on there.

    i just really want to line the tire decals with the tube valve esp since there are rim decals too. But that's just me being anal.
    Nice bike! hope u enjoy it.

    I don't know what skeptibale is or how you got it but I hope I never contract it.

    Nice bike though.

    From a purely aesthetic standpoint I don't like those Origin 8 dual 110/130 bcd chainrings, especially on a 130 bcd crank. They don't look too bad on a 110 bcd crankset, but on a 130 bcd crankset they look wrong to me with the 110 bcd mounts hanging down between the spider arms. I think something like an Sugino Messenger would look much better, although I realize it would cost more.

    Sold the frame. The wheel base was just too long. The bike looked funny to me.

    So I built this one.

    That's a nice Masi. I never noticed how long the rear end was on the first bike. That's odd after I look at it now.

    That's a nice looking bike. How are you liking that chainring? I'v been thinking about buying one myself as I need a new chainring. But I can't get over how ugly they look online, it looks slightly better on your bike though.

    The chainring does the job. I will change it later. Probably a Sungino. For the money its not bad. I paid 17 bucks shipped.

    Those are absolutely the ugliest chainrings ever made. They don't look too bad on a 110mm bcd crank, but look absolutely terrible on a 130mm bcd crank. I put one on a 1 x 7 conversion of a rigid mtb with a 110mm bcd crank, and it's apparent that they just took a 110mm bcd chainring and added extra holes, which is pretty lame imo.
