IDK why but I still say that the unbranded bikeisland frames in the wheatgold are a different color than the bikesdirect completes. Or I should say they're more gold and the completes are more silver. Either way that's a cool looking kilo, kind of a short stem though, and what cranks are those?

PSI is written on the tire itself, you may just have a flat from under-inflation as opposed to over-inflation.

what kind of bolts are those in your water cage mounts?
are those the valve caps that came with your tubes or aftermarket ones?

To the kid with the flats on his brand new bike...

Check your tubes and what type of puncture is being made...

If the tube is being punctured from the inside and there's only one puncture.......make sure there's no burrs protruding out from the spoke wells on your rim(s). Make sure that area is clean and without anything that can pop your tubes. If there is take it to the LBS and have them sand it down/clean it up.

Besides that make sure the rim tape is on there properly. If not buy new rim tape and re do it.
