So I bought a Premium deathtrap not too long ago and it had good parts, but it was scratched and ugly sad
I bought some new parts for it, had it powder coated, for free(:, and viola!

Do you guys like the color scheme? I wanted chrome bars and some black peddles but idk, I kinda like it this way, gives it some character you know? Might change the peddles though but for now they're brand new.

When I got it powder coated they actually painted it sort of Matte Black with a cool texture. Again, I think it gives the bike character.

Frame: Premium Deathtrap
Forks: Fit Street 3
Bars: Odyssey Double Space Bars
Stem: Sunday Freeze
Headset: FSA
Grips: ODI Longnecks
Barends: ODI
Cranks: Profile
Pedals: Odyssey
Sprocket: Premium
Chain: Shadow
Seat: Federal
Rear Wheel: Primo
Front Wheel: Proper
Tyres: Odyssey Mike Aitkens

So what do you guys think? worth the 420$ I put into it? It weighs around 21-23 pounds so it's pretty light, and I LOVE the toploader stem and high bars since I'm like 6'ft.
Only problems I have right now is that I need to true the rims, and since the cranks are identical, I put them on opposite so now the pedals are opposite, not really a big problem though.
BTW sorry for all the pictures/:

That can be argued against. It's personal preference really, I love my profile. Some cranks undeniably suck but for high end cranks it's whatever.

That feeling of having your bike how YOU want it, not just thrown together so you can ride. It's really amazing(:
