I love the masters and everything but how many times can people do the same scheme on the same damn bike lol

Lol man I just don’t get it. I’m not sure I’ve seen a single one built any different from another. Same color scheme, parts, hell even the same valve stem caps lol

Ha no it’s not a bike roast but that would be a interesting forum topic smile most likely would start a lot of arguments though... I actually like that build. Bars remind me of Swissmiss bars and the seat is interesting! I don’t think I have ever seen anything like that before!

Not to say they don’t look good though. They have grown on me over the years but yeah every one is like looking at the last 300 that you have seen....

This. It’s disrespectful. It’s like the bike is standing around half naked waiting on a medical exam. Yuck.


You should definitely ride that

Re: What part makes you cringe when someone has it on their nice build?

This has been a sort of fun thread to follow. But it reminds me of when I was a kid. And we would make fun of other kids bikes . Not knowing that maybe that was all their parents could afford. and they would piece it together however they could. Looking back, I am ashamed of myself. I think most bikes on here are enjoyable to look at.

I agree.  It is entertaining, but I can't get myself to bash another man's bike.  Ok, except for forks installed backwards lol
There was always one kid on the block who's poor dad didn't read the instructions during the install


It's your bike, build it how YOU want

I try not to let anything "get my goat", but solid colored chains make me want to punch infants.

Too funny, and I agree with both points.
