<offtopic>Hey, X -- where did you get that mount for your flask? I've seen one before, but it was a custom job. Did you do that yourself?</offtopic>

Hmm... could just be the angle, but for a fixie it looks a bit slack to my eyes.

Thanks.

It's a bit slacker than it's been in the past, but it's tighter than it looks. There's very little play in the cranks, and it's quieter this way.

I bought it from Joseph Ahearne at the NAHBS this year.

Really, I think x136 and slack are synonymous.

I like how you waited to agree with me on the slack issue until after you got the source of the flask mount. classy.
