It's only half chromoly, and it cracks so easy. Anything lower end then the Fit Team is junk.

Yeah, it will be fine for learning. When you learn how to grind, if you learn how to grind, make sure to check that frame for cracks after you ride. Specifically on the chainstays and wishbone.

They either had their dropouts filed down, or they were custom-made that way. Brian Foster's bike looks so clean.

Kinetik needs to clean his bike.

Oh yeah, and my dad made me a bike stand. It looks basically just like the $20 one in Dan's Comp, but I got mine for free. It's even powder-coated black.

Here's some new pics of my bike. Sorry if they're too big. I don't know why the second pic is cut off.





I tore my freakin' seat today too.

Yeah, it weighs just about 20 pounds.

I just cut my seatpost down a little bit last week and I put my seat down more. I also got new bars and grips.

And yes Kinetik, I do clip in. It's the way to go.

I just realized all the people that have Slams at the track. There's like 4 or 5 people.

Kinetik, I don't think the grips go with your whole color scheme. I think you should give them to me.

Holy sticker live4music!

And yeah, the purple doesn't match, but i like it, and the grips are awesome. So they stay.

I might paint my frame another shade of green, or some sort of orange in a few months.

You post in the MTB forum and A&S forum, so you're excused.
