Hey guys, thought I would do a bike check before I go out for the evening. I got this bike for a great deal earlier this year, and then just started putting a little cash into it, but not too much with a house payment and car payment and everything. Here is what I got so far:

Specs
Frame - Fit TRL 2, 20.5" w/Integrated Headtube
Fork - Stock 14mm
Bars - S&M RV 8”
Barends - Animal Plastic
Stem - Shadow Attack
Grips - Fit Original (Cut Flanges) (Have Edwins, but I'm going to wait to put them on.)
Headset - FSA Impact
Seatpost Clamp - Odyssey Mr. Clampy
Seatpost - Stock 25.4x125mm (Uncut)
Seat - SNAFU Bandanna w/8mm Rails & Clamp
Rear Wheel -Alienation PBR, 36H Single-Walled
Front Wheel -Alienation PBR, 36H Single-Walled
Cranks -Stock 3-pc, 175mm
Pedals - Odyssey Twisted PC
Sprocket - Stock 25T Steel
Chain - KMC
Brakes -None
Cables -None
Gyro -None
Pegs - Shadow Little Ones
Tires - Shadow Undertaker , 2.25" (Front), Odyssey Elm Street, 2.10" (Rear)
Mods - LOTEK stickers, Nothing is cut (Except Flanges). All I wanted to do was change the ugly stock stance and make it a more aggressive street/trail bike.

Future Mods, after Christmas I will post another check: Fit Flow Series Wheels (Gold), New fork (Don't know which one yet (Black) ), New cranks (Don't know which one yet (Black, Gold) ), and I'm going to get another Shadow Undertaker 2.25" for the back. I am also thinking about switching to a pivotal seat, and if I do that I'm jumping on the bandwagon and getting a Rouge Status seat and a stump post so I can slam it.

Yeah, I was looking at the shivs actually, thats one of my top 3 choices. I am looking at the Shivs, the Dirt Classics, and the Primo Kamakazi.

Thats true, that might be another good fork, that's why I have had such a hard time picking a fork because there are so many to choose from that are badass. The wheel set I wanted to go with the Flow Series because it's a good price for two complete wheels and I like Fit. The cranks too, thats another decision I have not made. But for sure by January I will have replaced the wheels, fork, cranks, and gotten another tire to run a big combo front and back.

Deff fit shivs.
Stolen team cranks
profile wheels, the flows are alright but the rims arent the greatest. Get odyssey, primo or profile hubs to odyssey hazard lites. Wheels are the biggest part of the bike and not something you want to slack on at all. I wouldn't do gold, black wheels would be soooo sick, but to each his own. Nice bike though man, looks really nice!

for your new cranks you want them to be gold or black right? you can buy profiles that are black but have a gold sparkle in them smile i think their good for the colour you want them to be, but anyway bike looks SICK!

Thank you for all the compliments guys. Yeah, I had to take it apart today though, I was painting my wheels white and some shit kept getting fucked up. They looked perfect then fell off the holder, dropped, bent, paint all fucked up. So new wheels is for certain.

I would love to get more expensive wheels Ressler711, but I got so much other shit to pay for (house payments and truck payments), that $200.00 is about all I am going to be able to swing on those, and being that they are complete and for $189.00, it's a good deal. If I see something in the Danscomp scratch and dent store or find a good deal through someone then maybe I will get something else.

Thank you for the tip Whytyrules, I will have to look into those cranks.

As far as the color, I don't know, I might end up sticking with the black, white, and flat grey coloring, but I think if I added in one more color it would have to be gold. I don't know what other color would look good with the setup I got now.

What do you think guys? I think gold or possibly red for one more color in the bike. But white, black, and flat grey are all so neutral, so I think gold would flow the best, being a more solid color that goes with the others.

You needn't look any further than my profile's bike pics for my feelings on grey, black, white and gold. But if you don't feel like lookin'... go for the gold!

Yeah, I just looked, it does look nice, and I think it will look good on mine being a little darker grey. How do you like those NItrous wheels?

I loves 'em! It's nice havin' wheels that actually roll. But my frame of reference is kinda askew. My last wheels had unsealed hubs and got to the point where they had to be rebuilt pretty much every week. To Hell with unsealed hubs! To Hell with cones!

11/7/2009 11:34 PM

Yeah, I like those Flow series because they are sealed.
