I thought about an all black one, but the LBS had this crank in-stock and I needed to get rid of the 175's or whatever came on this as pedal strike was everywhere!

What I need next is some better pedals though, these things are HUGE-

I am considering getting some MKS Sylvans for my bike, the ones I have now are cheap but the profile is nice so I don't have to worry about smashing the pedals on the ground.
The people seem to like the MKS GR 9s too, good price too.
I like the stealthy quality of your bike that's why I recommended the black crank to finish things off.

So with the GR 9's your straps just hang there eh? I like the profile of those, I could see myself getting a few more degrees of clearance on the turns!

i like my bike. it's fun. i decided to make it look like my shoes. i think it's funny... and no one else has done it... unlike arrospoks on pro framesets with risers. maybe i didn't sink thousands of dollars into it, and maybe i don't drive a 350z to work, but then again i don't see half as many people hating on my track bike that i ride on the road.

yes dooktruck, fit is important. very good, you pass bike 101. its when appearance over function gets knocked that one might become, say, irritated? i belive marinoni had an addidas bike that they auctioned off or some stupid s#%&. nonetheless, nice bike indeed, i'll chalk it up as a nod to the old school adidas cycling shoes, cool.

any paint will work... is that green powdercoated? it looks nice but i wouldn't ruin it just to knock the guides off. get a tt pad instead?

and how does the adidas tape job on my bike sacrifice function?

You might fool the f**ks in the league office, but you don't fool the dooktruck. This busch league psyche-out stuff. Laughable, man - ha ha!

ok so i took pics of my riding position and my nose goes past the bars when i'm on the dropped position. although, it did feel more comfortable. i'll just save the 50mm for another bike or sell it. got it for $20 anyways. maybe i can sell it for $30.

i'll put the 100mm deda back on. back to the old set-up. might get a size smaller. we'll see.

Your bike does not have the terrible sugino #5 integrated cranks. What type of crak is it?

oh dooktruck, my little prebuscent flower, my unsteady fawn. have you driven yer toungue once, even halfway, into a ***** dark odiforous, so succulent like cured game, back9-poop- hole? no guess necessary, the answer is no, my child. that lil singulator experiment was just that, an experiment
http://www.merriam-webster.com/ in case you need help w/the definition. i knew the path before i stepped one step, lil dewey bud. i ride big steel men's bikes, and am always game for a big man's fall. i've broken more bones than you've shoved home, as opposed to at home, safely next to mommy's room, after jeopardy and before morning, when she softens your eggs.
