2003 S&M Stricker

Shout to Damon and ALL the staff at Competitive Edge Coatings in South Windsor, CT for the pristine powder work ! I'll be dropping more off soon sir 🙌👊

     When I got this bike from my friend it was really "ratty".  In his defense, he rode a lot harder than I ever did (as he pointed out to me HAHA).  I gave it a FAT dose of TLC and tore it down to start from ground zero.  I took a die grinder to the top of the seat tube as it had been cut at an angle and the factory cable boss on the down tube had been removed.  I hand sanded the down tube where the cable boss had been to remove the left over beading and smooth it out.  I decided on a silver vein powder coat for this bike and I'm very happy I did. ** EDIT ** This is a REsubmission of this bike as I have just done another frame up rebuild. The satin black powder was a must with how "busy" the shield wrap parts AND the new wheels are. NOS SUN Big City Lite Urban Camo hoops that I laced with SAPIM titanium spokes and I alternated white silver black alloy nipples. The wheels are LOUD I admit and they won't be everyone's flavor but I'm very happy with them ! I think now with the semi satin black and minimal decals the bike hits hard and it had to have the white-walls to make the Urban Camo look "right". I wanted to keep the weight reasonable as I am running brakes so the titanium spokes, titanium RNC axle nuts, titanium FSA spindle/bolts and the Shadow titanium post keep it in check. I used 2 "problem solvers" clamp-style cable guides on the down tube to hold the brake cable housing in place. This bike really came together well and it feels solid when I get on it.  Thank you to Mike P for selling it to me 🙌 🚲 !
