nice i wanna get a mountian but i have too many track epensises

Always good to have a mountain to use it on. I live 10 minutes away from biking's "North Shore" where freeride and manmade stunts all began.
closest thing to trails i have here are the nyc pot holes

Very nice. Also looks like that frameset might work well as a DJ bike, with different fork, stem and chainring, of course.

The frame geometry is built for urban/trials.  I want to switch it up a little with more park like tires and a 21:18 gear ratio.  Then I'll think about changing out the stem.  I'm pretty tall and short stems are hard on my wrists...that's why the front end is so stretched out.  It's built for big bunny hops...hehe.

I'm still thinking aboutgetting a good urban/DJ bike but there are too many guitars on the shopping list first.

yeah, that looks like it.

yesterday i stripped everything down to just the frame, ground down the braze-ons and painted it. i don't have a pic right now, but this bike has the same color scheme that i'm using except my red is deeper, more like a dark burgundy.  i've got the arctic grey base coat down but i haven't decided on how i'm going to use the red yet.

eNons3nse,

If I could find an older framed bike and payed you, could build me a bike? I could come to Madison to pick it up. :)
