1997 Dyno Compe

Icy Blue Raspberry

When I first got back into bikes I started searching flea markets for something with an old school feel. The first bike that fit the bill ended up being this total piece of crap Dyno. It was spray-painted white, really just a frame, fork, bars and post with some junk Mongoose parts and no wheels. I first built it with OGK Performer mags and some cheap parts, but it's changed many times since then.  The only components I haven't changed at least twice are the frame and seatpost, it sure has come a long way since the first pic.  Thanks to Powers Bike Shop for the assist on a bunch of parts on this bike
