    That hub is a beast and those brake levers are Huge! That is going to be a beefy bike when it's done.

    haven't checked in for a bit. i'm at a standstill waiting for my bottom bracket and shifters. haven't found the shifters i want just yet, so i may have to use something else for the time being.

    aw heck!!!! i was going to upload my pics this morning, as i thought today was the deadline but the "finshed klunkers" forum is locked!!! i was out of town all last week because of my grandmother's passing and thanksgiving. so am i right in assuming that if the deadline is dec. 1st, that i should be able to post my finished pics on dec. 1st?

    okay, something weird is going on.....i went to try and post my finished bike on the finished klunkers thread and it was locked. then i noticed the "baby blunkers" appeared and the thread wasn't locked. so, i tried to post, but by the time i got finished with my post and getting the links to the pics in there, the forum was locked again. what the heck is going on!?!?!?
