    Re: Official non-motorized motorcycle thread.

    I don't want to be that guy but with all the wheel talk I wanted to say that I've started building wheels for myself, friends, and to resell. If any of you all are interested give me a holler. I tend to buy parts when I see really good deals and try to provide value. It helps to offset my purchases and I find it very relaxing.

    Looks like your lowest gear is 44-32? Not much of a granny gear, hope your ride is flat!

    42/32. I’ll just stand up and mash like when I was a child. It’s pretty flat, really gentle rolling plains.

    Why was I expecting it to be red white and black of some flavor?

    The blue is sharp, just not the normal colors I have come to associate with your toys. Cool that you are copying your kid though lol

    it is odd that i've ended up with so many red/white/black toys over the years, not planned, i swear

    i was being funny with the 'believe me' part, but there is some backstory to ending up with the blue frame (+ silver fork i'm not using) ... i've been trying to keep this build as low cost as possible by purchasing super clean used parts. bought a frame on eBay and long story short, i don't think the guy ever had a frameset to begin with. that was fun tracking him down on FB and getting the PayPal transaction reversed. oh the excuses people come up with ... first it was my wife shipped to wrong person, then he's on a plane and can't refund, blah, blah, blah.

    another Floval popped up in blue and i won it but already had my heart set on the gunmetal gray i had initially purchsed ... so was bummed out a little ... but i wouldn't be surprised if i end up stripping it and just running a clear over the aluminum. i'm a sucker for raw frame + all black components ... the blue is really gonna pop when it's done though so we'll see.
