    My new canvas...

    Here she is! The UPS man brought her today.

    A 1999 GT Backwoods frame. Picked it up off ebay for $20.50
    "100% American Made of 7000 grade Aluminium, Custom Butted" the sticker says.
    The downtube diameter is massive and I love the Triple Triangle. It'll slowly turn in to a singlespeed after my "other" bike is finished.

    Nice! Does the non-drive side also have a replaceable dropout? You could get some horizontal or track ends milled for ya.

    $20? Sh-ite, that's a good deal.

    I'm hoping for 26" slicks with a Pace carbon fork and some road drops, a la:


    That one tugs at my heartstrings.

    That looks like a 700c-wheeled bike with a tiny compact frame.

    But, mucho seatpost *does* look good.
