2005 KGB Psychopower

2005 KGB Psychopower

1st Gen. Psychopower - my "On the Cheap" build

This frame magically appeared in the for sale section-not everyday these turn up, I haven't ever come across the 1st gen versions anywhere. The newer Superpower frames were plagued with breakage problems brought on by the light weight craze and there aren't many survivors left and these are even harder to come by. Did the whole build with left over parts and a couple of to-good-to-pass-up deals, the only part that was bought new was the chain.

While I was diggin' the look of this bike with the black wheels, they were going to the Downtown, so I hooked up these Alienation Runaways with KHE Geisha  and Geisha Lites freecoaster. Killer hub!

Did a rebuild of this bike over the holidays - swapped out the wheels and entire front end (bars/stem/forks). Went with a look not any of my other bikes have.

I like to wear sneakers on my hands because it's much better when you crash - and if you're wearing sneakers on your hands, you're gonna crash.
