It's actually a rim I got used, so only the spokes and hub are new.

I will show the rest once it is assembled. I want to get it built first :D

Had a little mishap in the workshop last night, tire bead was shot and like 10 minutes after airing it up and letting it sit I heard a creak, looked over and saw the tube bulging out of the rim. It was MIDNIGHT and my wife and son were sleeping legitimately above me. I couldn't let pressure out fast enough and it went off like a shotgun blast to my hand.

Keep in mind the workshop room I have my stuff in is about 15 feet long by 6 feet tall by about 8 feet wide. Closed 2 foot by 4 foot door.

My ears were still ringing this morning.

I guess it is new tire day as soon as I can pop by the bike shop.

Anyway, here is a shot of it built with a bad front tire.

Radio Nemesis frame is the only thing I did not already post up. As soon as I have it rideable I will do up a bike check and better photos.

That's awful... the same thing happened to me with a shadow valor. I got it on my wheel, was pumping it up and I got to 80 psi and I heard a creaking, and saw the tire start to peel off the rim. I wasn't able to do anything as it tore and the tube blew up. The pressure was so strong that bits of the tube got stuck in my spokes. It was seated correctly and everything.

As for new parts, I want to get a gyro setup soon. All I need is the detangler, and possibly a lower cable.

Which tire and rim?

That sucks about the blow out. But I'm stoked you've got new bits! Is this the main bike now?

I got a few bits last week, a cinema guarded sprocket that doesn't guard very well. And a fit I beam post! But I can't find a railed seat I like for sale anywhere so I'm using an old fit one from a complete for now. The s&m thin seat is being reissued in may, I'll be putting in a pre order closer to the time

Yep! It's the only bike now, sold the fatbike to afford some parts and such.


And to Equoias, it was my front tire, a Primo WLT. The bead seems damaged and slipped off the hook on the inner wall of the rim. If I put it back on it will do it again. Tire is shot, so new tire day! Rim is ok though, so that's good.

Great stuff.
I'm slightly jelly as i found my rear wheel blown up when i woke up this morning. It seems some fat person used my bike and that happened.

that bike is sick looking! The copper and black is killer! I have never (knock on wood) had a tire blow like that, even while riding etc.

Loving the new whip!

Haven't you had some other bad luck/ poor performance with the 2nd gen WLT's? lol

Nope, The Primo Wall back in the day was problematic, but these have been great until the other night.

Got an Animal TWW tire on the rim, but I am swapping it to the back because it is narrower than the WLT in the rear.

Ah, that's what it was...

14yr old me was a big fanboi of the first wall tire and Primo wall grips smile

I must of purchased an anomaly set of tires and grips back then, because it seems now most people disliked them (especially the grips lol).

Ultimately I need to get my Demolition Rogue cassette laced up and run that. I miss cassette, and this setup feels super trails-y when I look at it. Haven't even had a moment to ride it sadly. I will be tomorrow though.
