I like it. The color is way better than the military look I've been seeing lately.

Currently 30/16
The Haz-lite cassette comes with 4 drive cogs 12-13-14-16
I left the 16 on when I put the 30 tooth tree on. I'll switch them around for sure. With the 30/16 I cut the chain with the rear axle more forward than normal so I could use any cog and just have to adjust the chain tensioner, and not have to mess with chain length again.


Thanks for the reply!

That'll affect the handling quite a bit.

Question: Why didn't you just buy a 33-tooth sprocket and use the 12-tooth cog? That would make a whole lot more sense.

I wanted a nice small sprocket up front, plus i have four sizes to play with. I like having the torque too.

Thanks for the reply.

I think it's an old school word. Over here, it's been replaced by "Schmick".

It's also sold as a wheelset or rear wheel only.

I got the cassette wheelset. Also I fianlly took the tiem to load up the pics, that bike is freaking awesome! I might rebuild this Specialized frame it got, WTF did you use to strip it? I tried aircraft paint thinner and it didn't rip off powder coat too well.

Cluth is a band - their bassist, Danny Maines used to be part owner of a bmx shop in Germantown, Maryland called Wheel Pro. Strictly a bmx shop. He's a decent guy who has done well, so anything cool in bmx can just be called 'clutch' and everyone knows what you mean.



Nice bike - good to see a solid build up like that. Hope the Powerbites work out well.
