^ ended up being the chainring bolts. The cranks wouldnt creak when I took off the chain so I removed the bolts, cleaned the interfaces and greased the threads. Super quiet now except for mild chain rattle when decelerating. While this happened, I discovered something else: I get a slack chain when the right crank is between 2 o'clock and 4 o'clock. What could be the cause of this? Warped chainring/cog?
Haha no, it had more to do with Tyler being a beast. Cracked the top tube and downtube at the gusset, by the time he was done with it the top tube was in two pieces and the downtube was cracked all the way through with only the gusset holding it together.
I just put together my V1 725 for commuting. I had some parts left over from my Langster and threw them on my frame and fork.

I just threw it together about an hour ago and sorry for the iphone pic. I need to get a longer bolt for my front brake that is why it is dangling. I am getting some rocking in the seat post. I tightened it with the post in and then re-tightened it with the post out but it still rocks. Any advice?
my dogs would not move. I also have a machined gold aerospoke for the front but it is heavy.
That's pretty close but I would think it's fine. My Omniums on my TET frame cut it pretty close as well on the NDS, but I don't even think my clearance is that small. But... it's not like your crank arms are going to flex laterally 2-3mm when you pedal.
You can also ask in the Mechanics forum for more peace of mind.
