Fit posted a bike check. I'm crippled again and need surgery. We banned a female member because she wouldn't post nudez*. I've taken your place of being a jerk and I like it. Tag team?

Mosh Justice, nice, sealed, double walled, cheap.
I still like my Hazard hub.
Frame kicks ass.



*pissed us off.

2. I just had surgery today to get the screws out of my leg and am currently hobbling around in quite a deal of pain because I refuse to take pain medication of any kind.
2a. Sun Rhynolight or Hoffman Generator
2b. Demolition or the new Wethepeople one when it comes out in the US.

EDIT: The frame can take a pounding.

1. Painted my bike again. (If you care)
2. Proper rim is nice and only 50
3. Demolition is good for only 100 or the coalition for 135.

Cogs are rings with teeth that you slide on. They only go down to 12, then you need a one peice driver.

And drivers are one peice and usually are from 11-8

Cogs only go down to 12. But you can just slide on the different size cogs from 12 and up with ease instead of replacing a whole new driver and such.
