    I am going to assume you had most of the parts lying around?
    No matter how bad things get, they can't get any better, and they can't get any worse, things are what they are, so you better get used to it Nancy, quit your B*tchin'

    Well, what did you start out with? Did you have the frame lying around or not?

    No, I bought the frame off CL for $30. The bike was more or less complete but the back wheel was messed up, the PO had intentions of converting it but realized he was over his head. So it came with the nitto stem, bars, sugino crank. Wheels were 100, chain was 25. Seat I found dumpster diving at the bike store

    Caddyfatcat was a character with a pimped out cadillac in this old computer game where you went apesh*t with cars named carmageddon. I dropped a "d" and adopted it

    $30 for all that stuff is a pretty good deal. I assume their Sugino RD2s. I can't really see.

    lame: no brake

    lame: no bar tape
    lamer: no bar plugs

    lamest: saddle angled to match stem

    otherwise, quite a deal for a rideable (if dangerous) bike

    Foot retention: planning to go to the junk yard and get some old seatbelts.

    Bar Plugs: they are there just black.

    Tape: may eventually find something

    I bought that wheelset a little bit ago. They really aren't bad for the price considering they come with tubes and tires.

    Wow what a bargain!
    But then again I would consider $155 a bargain for some single components these days...

    lulz for reminiscing. remember playing that on computers in stores when computers were big.

    More importantly, would like to know the status of deep rim in background. Or potential ideas.

    Very nice so far, especially considering the price!

    I found it misleading too. I totally thought you had a fat cat named Cady.

    Oh, the devastating disappointment.

    I was hoping OP's username was a subtle Mean Girls reference.

    I was thinking the things along that line. I thought the "cat" was named after Cady in the movie.
