Hello vital, as the new year rolled in I figured I should start it off right by building a new frame - a Hawg Pink S&M Tallboy, a frame i’ve been wanting for months. I planned on making a new bike check on the first, to end the exact one year anniversary of riding my Volume Vessel - but alas.

Early on the morning of 1/1/18, I crashed and fractured my skull, causing internal bleeding in 2 separate areas. I received cranium surgery, and i’ll be making a full recovery. It’s a terrible way to start off the new year, and I can’t even begin to build my bike because of a fractured clavicle. It’d be slow going building a bike with only one working arm.

I’ll be back on the bike in about a month and a half or so, and I’ll update this thread with pictures when I begin the build (after recovery.) Meanwhile, here’s a picture of my frame and a picture of my head.




(it’s a very unflattering picture of me, but i’ll throw in a better one at some point. please wear your helmets - i’m the dumbass who didnt.)

Heal up young dude! I crashed pretty hard tonight at the local indoor and if i didn't have my helmet on i would have been sleeping on impact. That Tall Boy is going to look great, all black parts?

Dang, that sucks Dan. I broke my collarbone (clavical) a little over a year ago now I think, and it was'not as bad as I thought, I don't know how bad yours is, but it didn't really hurt too much after a couple days, it was just uncomfortable. And not being able to move my whole arm was annoying though. That really sucks about your skull though... that's awesome youll be making a full recovery from it though! And I really like that frame, I kinda want a TallBoy in black. That'll probably be after my Fiend Reynold retires though... will definatly be checking back here to see the progress!

I don't crash, I do random gravity checks...

That frame is sick as fuck . You’ll be happy with S&M’s quality . Only reason I swapped mine was purely geometry and chain tensioners . I remember you putting it up on Instagram as a poll , I think it suites you .

And you’ll heal up sooner than later , don’t be hard on yourself and just gotta understand it’ll be even better riding once you’re back !

The frame is really cool.

All the best with the recovery and keep us updated.

If I could go a tenth as high as Larry Edgar goes, then I would still be blasting super high.

God bless you, man. You've got more to do in this life.

Frame is awesome. S&M rocks. All black trim will be a show piece!

HA! I just picked up (should be arriving today!!!) an S&M Tallboy! I can't wait. So we will be building the same bike at the same time. I am not at such a disadvantage, however since i broke my clavicle in 2008 & I think it might be healed by now. Really, REALLY sorry to hear about your noggin! Man, that really sucks! But, I'm happy it's been taken care of & you are alright. Prayers for your speedy recovery, dude!

P.S. Don't worry, my frame is the trans gold so we won't be complete "twins". BTW, what size TT is your frame?

You better post pics Mishinn! I really wanted that one, and in a week or two I would've had the rest of the money to buy It, but you beat me to it! It's okay though becasue I probably didn't need it as i love my Fiend Reynolds sooooo much! And I may pick up a TallBoy from a buddy, he has a TallBoy now and he said he's getting a new frame so I may ask him if I can take it off him for like $75 or something because it's an older one and he rides it pretty hard...

If I can sell my volume for a decent price, I'll be buying an Odysssy/Profile wheelset for it. Black Hazard lites to an elite front hub, and profile z coaster read. I'll be using my chrome R25's and chrome Big 4's with odyssey drivetrain (all black) and black seat and seatpost

Even though the tallboys just been sitting in my room, I cannot wait to build and ride it. It's a lovely frame! Expect the build to start sometime in later January

I just noticed the thread you threw up, yours is looking good! I've got an extra large frame on my hands, 21.25" top tube. A bit of a step up from 21".

thanks you!!

nope, none at all. the steerer tube only sits about 3mm below the top of the stem, so it’s a perfect fit

Dope, man!

I was going to run my stem slammed also, but S&M implied in this promo that you needed the XL steerer tube for that to happen... They must of been blitzed, or something! lol

Nope, they're big fours. If I could get my hands on a pair of bob bars I would certainly ride them

Aw dang, I'd love a pair of bobs or big fours, too bad I'm 6'2" and I hate small bars, they hurt my back... but if I was shorter, I would be all over them! That's why I got the Sunday Street Sweeper bars, 9" rise and has the double bend like the big fours and bobs... so they're like a taller version of those!
