Hiya.

I'm new here, but have lurked for a time. I have a few bikes to share with the group, so I thought to start with this one.

Frame: 21.25" 1664 Short Bus, Spanish BB
Fork: Kink Empire
Headset: Can't recall
Stem: Odyssey GI
Bars: Solid Iron Cross
Grips: Primo
Bar ends: generic metal
Seat: Velo comfy
Post: Odyssey rail
Clamp: Odyssey
Cranks: 1664
Pedals: Odyssey Jim C sealed magnesium
Sprocket Macneil guard, 39t
Freewheel: ACS Fat, 14t
Chain: KMC 415H
Front wheel: Primo Hula Hoop 48
Front hub: Primo Son of a Bomb, 14mm
Front tire: Animal GLH 2.1
Rear wheel: Araya 7X 48
Rear hub: Rekka (rare and heavy)
Rear tire: Odyssey Path 2.1

Nearly 40 pounds without pegs, but still rides sweet. It has been semi-retired for a number of years, but I still try to get out roast around on it a few times a week.

You need a proper tire combo, maybe MAYBE a tad bit bigger bars. MAYBE.

Yessir.

Rekka was made by a gent in England, whose name escapes me. Really heavy duty stuff, lots of stainless, big flanges, industrial grade hardware, etc. My local bike shop had this hub, which sat for years, so I splashed out for it in ~2002. It hasn't skipped a beat since.

New shoes for the hoss sittin' in the garage, so I need to get on that.

I also have a set of 'modern' bars that I swap for the Solid's every now and then. I always seem to go back to the small ones...
