When I woke up in the morning I got an email notification and it made me spit my coffee. LOL wasn't expecting my order so soon, because some of the stuff I wanted Empire didn't have in stock and I told them to take their time and mail it to when they get those parts.

And I will love my new chrome bike! I'm not rich by any means, but I work 3 jobs so I can support my family and my hobby! I will post a bike check soon as I can, however I will probably ride it a little today first after assembling it. I got the tools, grease, and lube ready; just camping outside my front door like a vulture with my laptop waiting eagerly for the UPS man.

haha niiiiiice! excited for you, man. it looks like you got the works..detangler 'n everything. really looking forward to seeing it put together! take lots of pics and flood them into a thread laughing (just looked up the frame, you got chrome? it looks dope!)

I can't upload a photo for my sig. it's that guy puking really hard, except it's coming out of his ears and eyes, too. just imagine that instead of this text. oh look, there he is now!

1/19/2016 11:25 AM

The ONLY thing I would have done differently is I ALWAYS get a few extra spokes in every size I need for the wheels I build, PURELY because I have had some come through haggard and unusable, and if I break one I have a spare.

Outside of that nothing but jealousy because I love new bike day and bike work day!

Why just 1 rim strip though?

You should have gotten 2 more tubes and a few more extra grips.

son, i am disappoint.

1/10

jk.

Have fun building it and don't forget to grease the threads on every bolt. smile


EDIT : You have a MID BB for a Kink frame? Don't they use spanish BB though???

I have many spare spokes if any are bad. The rim strips are sold in pairs and I have 2 pairs of unused grips (Cult Vans). I also have 3 other tire tubes. I called Empire to ask about the chrome Kink Titan Frame with a mid BB; they didn't have it in stock at the time, but were aware that Kink does offer such an option so they ordered for me.

I will try to build this bike mainly from what I ordered, however I have spare bolts and such in case I run into any problems. I wanted to build this bike from parts only from Empire or try to. If I accomplish this, it will be my first bike made purely out of parts from Empire, no Dans or Albes, etc, however much love to them and respect for all good bike stores.

I love and support Empire BMX, even though Thomas and Taylor may be annoyed at how many times I call their store! I know there are other stores and even better ones out there, but every cent I spend for BMX I want it to go to Empire. Again I do respect all other good shops too!

I also have other BMX bikes in case I need to pull parts from them, but that is a last resort. Well except Kreggy; I would not want to use any parts from Kreggy. Kreggy is a special bike that is a mash up of parts all bought on craigslist. Probably the ugliest bike I own (not too ugly though paint stripped and repainted all black), but I notice it is the smoothest ride I have too.

what you should do is maybe just send him a box of random parts. then the feeling will be even greater. if i lived closer i would do but shipping for me is like $100

Both have benefits. 26 typically has a more nimble feel and control and it better for jumping, BUT for what I am using it for, a 29 will be better. I will be commuting to and from work, riding in crap weather, single track (in MN is pretty flat compared to other places) and hauling my son around in his trailer.

It will be a bright pink Surly Karate Monkey. Awesome.

lmao "honey...what is our neighbor doing?" "he appears to be...pissing into that bush. for a few hours now. then he drinks more water and waits until he has to go again....and now he's defecating. let's just pretend we didn't see. wait, now he's running out to greet the postman, pants around his ankles. definitely did not see."

Sorry I ended up riding all night and now I'm at work (boo). I didn't even install the brakes and detangler yet; I plan to do that after work. Will post pic soon. All parts fit like a charm.

@Ricked_em
I've used Deluxe F Lite pedals before and they are great. Very grippy even without micro knurling, but harsh pedal bite although that's with any metal pedals really. Plus they're very beautiful pedals.

When you get a chance post up a photo!

When spring rolls around and it is bike painting time for me, I am going to take photos of the rip down process, sanding painting and then reassembly.

Word.
