The grifter was my first choice but Dans has them on back order. I ended up going with Aaron Ross K-Lyte 2.1's front and back, since they were on sale for $25.

Rotating mass has a lot more effect on the feel of a bike than static mass. Angular momentum, physics, bro. I love how trendy the bmx scene is. It makes me feel that much better about having almost every titanium/ lightweight part I can get away with ... more »

Animal GLH-R, Fly Rubens, FAF-K, they're all out of stock or have very few options left on each site I've visited. What happened?

It's all good. I just scored a brand new Profile hub on ebay for $100. It's LHD, but I'll deal with it.

A bicycle isn't worth your life, so good decision you made there. I think I've successfully coped. Having all this titanium stuff makes me very happy, and this bike will be 100% better than my old one. Here's the list so far: S&M LTF 20.8" -$200 ... more »

A custom metal box over some propane burners. Just gotta wire up some 240v for the welder since my generator took a crap.

Just picked up some Profile Racing cranks, titanium spindle, and flush mount bolts for $150. Craigslist is awesome! Now all I really need is a wheelset.

Stripped, ground, sanded, polished:

Next I'll be rust bluing the frame, forks, bars, and cranks. Which involves coating the parts in acid, letting em rust for a couple minutes, then boiling the red rust till it turns blackish/blue, polish and ... more »

I'll give him a few more days.

I sent him the payment for a hub on the 2nd, he replied on the 3rd saying he was shipping it but he was really busy. Haven't gotten a tracking number or anything, and that's the last time I heard from him.

Reply to Fixing a hole... 12/4/2014 8:34 PM

Structurally speaking you would've been better off leaving the hole. Especially since the frame is probably chromo, and you probably welded it with ER70 and 75/25 gas, and you probably didn't back purge. You'll find out soon enough. I would strip the ... more »

Exactly. That only works within bluetooth range, which without line of sight is much less than the advertised 100 feet. Mine will work anywhere you get a GPS signal, then when it looses GPS it can triangulate the position with GSM, and when you loose ... more »

I was extremely paranoid about my old bike for the longest time, nobody could ride it that I didn't know, and it would never leave my sight when I was out in the city. But I stopped riding about a year ago and it sat in a shed for a while. When I got ... more »
