I think I have those Soma Urban Pursuit bullhorns in a closet somewhere. They kinda suck.
The flop n' chop is actually preferable.

A sneak peek at my wife's shiny new 51cm 722:



She's building it up tonight when she gets home. I'll post more pics a little later.

Yeah...now that Bikeage has a space of it's own across town, I can keep the majority of our tools/parts there and the house can stay a little cleaner.

It's so hard to just sit here looking at it and not build the damn thing up myself!

If its hard to look at and not build why not get another for yourself?

Mostly parts from her current conversion and a few new treats. I keep trying to convince her to put my Aerospoke on it but she refuses.

Sorry for the bad pics. All I had was my phone.











Done for now. That EighthInch stem ended up being a little too short for her liking and we didn't want to cut the steerer just yet. New stem is arriving tomorrow.

Wow nice...
It would be pretty fun to put the A'spoke to have a trick build for like 5 minutes, then it'll get old.

What fork is that? Looks like BareKnuckle/Toyo Godzila/Maddy fork.
