Thank you for the offer, but I already have wheel plans in place. My idea is to use this for now, then use the deals I get through Trek to get a 520 frame and some nice 700c disc wheels (along with bars and stem), then use my Shimano deals for some nice hydraulic disc brakes and rotors; gonna transfer this engine kit over to that bike when the time comes.

You have phone...load pics right from your phone. All I use is windows 8.1 Nokia. But, I'm not able to see your pics.

I tried that, but my phone is unfortunately on the fritz, screen likes to randomly stop working.

As far as my build goes, I swapped the ground wire for a longer and thicker wire (4 gauge, 40") and relocated my battery to my bag on my rack. I found that by routing the positive wire along the top tube, it was just long enough to reach my new battery location without having to replace or lengthen it.

I'll take some pictures tomorrow, too cold and dark right now. Supposed to be warm enough to get this small amount of snow (probably not even measurable) off the roads, hopefully I'll get a window where I can ride before it's supposed to rain.

How the build/BT80 going?

What type of oil are you running in the gear case?

The bike is good. I'm less good. Took a spill yesterday and broke my arm/wrist pretty good. In a cast until surgery next week.

I run 10w30 and it seems to work.

Thanks to the wonders of oxycodone, the pain is manageable, haha. The thing that kills me is I can't ride for at least 8 weeks.

Thank you. I'm hoping surgery goes perfectly and I can get back in the saddle ASAP.
