Been out of BMX for years,got the itch for one...but I hate stock bikes. Didn't want to blow tons of money either because I wasn't sure how long I could survive the transition back from MTB. Lots of what you see here was bought right here on vital. Can anyone spot their parts? LOL.

I've enjoyed it thus far, but looking forward to a T1 frame in the future.

Frame - 21" ATF
Fork - Directors (gasp! spacers!!?! hahah)
Bars - Samsquanches
Grip - Shadow
Marmoset to Primo 7005
Ratchet to Hazard Lite
DT Swiss spokes
Stem - Fit (yeah, it's flipped) I'm in the market for a challenger or race xlt
Cranks - Primo w/ Ti spindle
Sprocket - Ezra 28 tooth
Chain - Amber
Tires - Snafu
Pegs - Fit (not pictured)
Seat/post - Macneil / Odyssey
Brakes - Odyssey/Diatech/Fly/Eclat mixture (cable is long, I know)

Let the hate begin....haha

Thanks guys. Not sure what was going on with the seatpost height that day. I'm oooold school, but I usually run it about one fist high.

@ Austin - love the frame, thanks. Yeah, those are Kenny's wheels. I completely rebuilt/repainted the rims and relaced with new spokes/nips. Everyone was scared of those hubs, but they are in fine shape other than chips in the powder coating. I was pleased with the deal.

@DeeHos - yep! Thanks man.

love everything but the tires, never liked those tires.

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.
