    That would be "chomo" although "chimo" fits better lol. Regardless, I removed the decals tonight. Removing stickers as old as me is not a simple task

    Been a long time since I've heard of "Chimo."

    I used to work for the importer.

    Rack looks good, but now the brake is gone. Curious, why did you opt for it in the rear and not front (the brake)?

    Youre missing a brake on the front: unless you're riding freewheel with just back brake (not safe) or you're riding fixed with a back brake (pointless)

    First off I didn't ask about the brake lol. I was only running the rear temporarily till my front caliper arrives (today). I am WELL aware that the rear only sucks a fat one

    Those are clipless pedals I just have the clip in platforms on, It's single speed at the moment anyway. Getting pedals and clips tomorrow hopefully since I cant afford nor do I care to get clipless shoes
