While it was 90% built, i hadnt tightened everything down and he rode it to school. That afternoon, he texted me this pic...

No NDS crank arm! Oh there it is on the ground.
ha ha, he was apparently too excited to wait and I didn't think to tell him it wasn't ready to ride because it seemed obvious to me.
The crank cap had stripped due to it being ridden, so a stop at a local shop got us a new one.

tonight we applied the bar tape(it matches the green, even though the pics dont show), tightened everything down, and trimmed then capped the cables.

we hit the $375 budget, but had to steal the saddle and bottle cage off his earned Trek fx1 to meet budget.

unfortunately the finished pics are grainy as it was dusk when we finished.
