Comments: This bike weighs really nice. I really have no plans to make any major changes from here...I set out to set it up this way, really thought about the parts I wanted on her, and did it. Really, the only consideration I have in regards to changing her would be possibly the pegs. In the picture you see the bike with Hoffman Day Smith Loc'ed pegs. I switched to Huck pegs, but my feet don't seem to like them. The Hoffman Pegs might be going back onto her.
Any questions, hit my up! Thanks for looking!!

- Details My current bike. I love the stem/gyro/spacer/integrated headset cup all being red. The look of that just kills it for me. The rear weighs really nice. The Profile replacement shell that is used to replace Nankai shells, paired with a London TI axle makes a huge difference. This bike probably has the nicest rear end feel out of any of the bikes I've ever built. thanks for your interest!
