2009 DK Convex

Her name is 'Lady Luck'...

So I started out with a tank of a frame (my old 2004 Dk 'Step Up' frame) and added some new flavor to my methods for 2012. With the help of my lovely wife, who bought the frame off a local, I was able to put together a new ride for the 2012 season. Her name is 'Lady Luck', check out the set up and transformation!

*Update (03-19-12): The knarps and gyro were a TERRIBLE idea so I ditched them for a straight cable!

Here are some pics of the transformation from the old 'tank' frame to the new setup!

The frame as it was when i got it...

The beat up, dinged up, dirty as hell frame as I received it...

Cleaned up frame...

A little elbow grease, a little patience, some new stickers and presto! Lookin' good!

Midway

Midway through the process and you can still see the old frame in the stand (background)...

One frame down...

One frame massacred and cannibalized, one complete bike...Funny how things work out...

Goodbye
