I got the frame for a price I couldn’t pass on which then spawned this build.
Still waiting on Twisted pro’s, GSport uniguards and I haven’t made up mind what pegs yet.
Also gotta give a shoutout to Odyssey customer service. After a few days riding I started to have an issue with the chrome on my front rim and after a few emails and pictures they are sending me a new one.

So legit.... the frame, the cranks, the bars, the forks, the wheels.... i usually like the all gum vs the black-wall on chrome rims, but i see you're tying in the black... besides, the gum walls usually get scuffed up from grinds... i can dig it... that stem is so clean...

Really like green and gum combo.

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

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

YEAH!!! Another Tallboy!!! Gotta love a fellow S&M rider! I love that green! It isn't for everyone but I have a thing for green. When I got my frame, I already had a trans gold bike but I couldn't pass up the deal so now I have two. THEN, while waiting for shipping, etc... I went to the S&M site to check out the specs, etc... (like drooling over the sears catalog just before Christmas back in the day!). That's when I saw the green & was sorta bummed. LOL. Anyway, great build! Keep the rubber side down... or up.... or..... well, just keep landing on the rubber side!!!

Thanks the trans green looks pretty good in person and it was a chance to do something a little different.
I do my share of drooling at the S&M site and if I find a deal on amother one it’ll be tough to resist.

Absolutely lovely bike. I have a bit of a thing for tallboy frames even though I'm a total short arse myself.

The "Tall Boy" is mainly a reference to the 5" tall head tube. At the time it was one of the first (if not the first?) to have that feature, but is now pretty common on most modern frames (your Mutiny Comb frame actually has a 5" HT).

The .25" shorter TT length, .5° steeper HTA and .15" taller BBH should make your new Tall Boy frame feel more nimble and compact than your Comb frame.

True, but him saying "recently ordered" pretty much makes it a 99% chance it's a V2.

Right, if it was a new recent purchase it’s gotta be da v2

I’d fuck with the v2, I have a v1 but it’s too big for me sad gonna keep it tho cuz maybe one day I’ll want to ride it again
