    paint the risers black or get black risers, the silver ruins the whole matchy-matchy tarck look
    Did you poop at that stop back there? I didn't pay $300 on brakes that save 150g to have you carrying around 600g of breakfast all day

    When building bike, be sure to fix spoke cards before putting pedals on or properly adjusting... anything.
    anything measured by the gram is going to be more exciting than something measured in pounds.

    Maybe try setting your bars at the same angle as your steering axis, unless you already know you like rocking that Chicago BMX steez.
