So I am pretty much decided on what I want to get, I have done tons of thinking about what I want and don’t want, here is what I have in mind at the current moment for a new bike for 2014, my birthday is on December 21st and I am receiving a settlement check from being hit by a car on February of 2012, why I am receiving the check this year is because this upcoming birthday, is when I turn 18. So here is a parts list of what I want to get, and yes I picked a cheap frame, but that is because I do not ride hard, I am still at the level where I can’t even barspin yet so I am surely not worried about breaking a frame, some info on the settlement check, I am receiving over 3,500 dollars in that check, the bike on Danscomp would cost right under 1,700 to buy all the parts I want to build it up with. So aside from it possibly looking doper (is that a word?) than all holy hell, what is your guys opinions on the parts, I AM NOT EXPECTING AN O.P. ON EVERY PART, just on what parts you guys are running or have ran in the past!

If you got the 2014 Volta, you could get close to that green, chrome, black colorway you put together.

I like designing bikes. Here’s what I did working off your build. I know you’re loving that flat green, but I switched it out for nicer frame that is very similar to the Haro Zebra geo while still coming in under $1700.

Frame: Subrosa Balum 20.5” Money Green
Forks: Division Formosa (or Subrosa Villicus Money Green)
Bars: Primo Rebar 8.69” (they come in 9”)
Grips: Odyssey Dugan
Stem: Mission Talon TL
Headset: Rant
Cranks: Fit 24mm; 170mm (includes bottom bracket)
Sprocket: Shadow Crow 28T
Pedals: United PC
Chain: Cult 510
Seat: Fly Tripod
Post: Odyssey Tripod (longer than the Fly)
Tires: Odyssey Hawk
Tubes: Heavy Duty
Pegs: Primo Binary PL x4
Hub guards: same except Shadow DS
Spacers: Carbon fiber 5mm x3
Wheelset: same
Brakes: same + Subrosa gyro tabs

Total: $1665.65 + $10 w/ Villicus forks

yeah that sounds nice too, but it would be right under the 17 mark if i were to get it built up by my shop instead of me building it

Get a complete, bro. If I weren't planning on building a 22" I would get a nice complete.

The ravager pedals are dope, Ive had the pcs for close to a year and theyre still going strong. I ran the strada for about 2 weeks then got a flat, so im understandably not a fan of slick tires

Honestly? Who gives a shit. Its the fucking internet. I hate all of you equally.

That seems like a nice bike. But please please please please get a nicer frame if you are putting all those parts on!!! Get a really nice frame and get it painted if you are set on that green.

I'm a punk bmxer, I can't do it well so I do it loud.

I'm sorry that's not worth 1700. I built my bike for way less than that.

no no no... right under 1700 if my shop were to build up the entire bike, the bike racked up to actually around i believe 1,630-1,640, but if there is a certain percent off discount code i will use it to make it cost a bit less
