1997 SE Racing OM Flyer Enduro 26

Dual-speed cruiser that does it all

My wife (she rocks) gave me this frame and fork for Christmas in '97. It wheelies like a dream. The frame is built to accommodate a multi-speed hub and rear derailleur, but I originally built it up as a standard BMX cruiser. Then I decided to make it into a bike that would handle both the street and singletrack trails. I put a Paul "Melvin" chain tensioner on the back and set the front up with double chainrings, but no derailleur. Instead I use this thing on the end of my arm called a hand to move the chain when I get off the street and on the trail and vice-versa. The lower gear makes it good for some simple urban trials riding. This bike was stolen in January '08, but after only three weeks I got it back! It was truly christmas all over again.

Ha! Where can I buy one of those arm/hand derailing devices?
No Really. Nice bike, nice story. Love the Endo picture too!
