    got some sweet tires today at my LBS i was ecstatic to see them there having never seen them there before

    the owner said somebody ordered them last year in may but never paid just a deposit
    supposedly they are super durable/longwearing the center about 1" is stiff,hard,thick
    plus they look pretty sweet

    for some reason the pipes look not straight in the picture but they are
    will finish out these welds soon and figure out how to get a loopy downtube

    this project is taking lots longer than i expected. waiting for more parts to come in and not having all the time to work on it i would like
    i may have to leave out my front suspension idea until later
    costs also seem to add up quickly and to a larger dollar amount than what i thought at the beginning

    got a question

    ive got a sturmey archer 3-speed hub on the back but the sprocket that comes with it is too thick to get an 8-speed chain on. could i just shave it down without any ill effects?

    I've never used a archer hub... hopefully someone with some experience with it will jump in with some advice.

    holy craps!
    if anybody has any ideas about using a jackshaft just buy the whole thing from sickbikeparts!
    trying to set up my own jackshaft its insane

    im sure the sbp kit has got to be awesome since it looks totally bolt up. the whole tack and then adjust stuff just dont work when trying to line up chain rings and sprockets!

    i think your pasting way too much code. lol

    make yourself an account on photobucket and upload them there

    then open the pic to view it, right click copy location, and paste inserting [​IMG] after!
