2007 Kappa K-26

"chrome will take you home..."


*sadly this is no longer part of the fleet but I'll leave it here for posterity's sake...

I got a great deal on ebay for this bike complete, and swapped some parts out from my Firemans 26 to arrive at this curb jumper extraordinaire. (the bike, not the rider)
It already had some REALLY nice stuff on it (like the Kappa bars and even an unadvertised White ENO FW) but I had to give it some personal touches and now I want to hang it in our Master Bedroom. (yeah, fat flippin' chance but you know what I mean)
Gearing is 38/16

Looks good! what are those bars, and what is your gearing?
I got a chrome one with twin top tubes..is your chrome sorta inconsistent?

Howdy and thanks Gary, the bars are Kappa as well, and overall the chrome seems fine on mine.  I did have a bit of it come off at one of the brake posts (one of the cylinder pieces directly below the post itself) when I was swapping them out but that's not that hard to imagine and it doesn't seem like it will "spread" at all...  Gearing wise it's 38/16 and so far I like it quite a bit - it had a 39/16 but that felt a little too stiff for me for just riding around town at least.
