Default Long time listener, first time caller

So I've had my bike built for about a year and a half and i'm finally making an account.

I've used this site a lot for help on my build, most of the questions I had were already answered and already solved my problem. I'm not sure I would of even gone through with the build If i was forced to use just the directions that came with the kit haha.

It actually stops pretty well as long as I keep the brakes kept up. I haven't had to stop in the rain yet though. Disc brakes are an upgrade I'd like to do down the line.

If i had a truck or bike rack I could take it to Soulard haha.

when you can, try a set of mechanical or hydraulic disc brakes on the front, you may be happy
had to tear down my bike the other day because i set the sprocket and adapter to close and the chain ate through the lower frame arm lol back to square one for me as soon as i get the other bike sometime next week. take your time and be sure to do everything in a way that will not leave you stranded
ride safe
