    Re: The Hater! Frame Change

    I always liked the Kilroy frame, is it aluminum?

    I'd just remove the rear bridges completely.
    Unless you need them for fender mounts.

    Re: New School (Frame Change)

    Even with them being very rigid, imagine the forces of riding this bike and leaning into a turn. Without the additional bracing they would have a tendency to sway, steel is forgiving, but it could cause rubbing.

    The old bait and switch I see .... :wink: Did the same to a steel huffy frame sticking a nexus 4 in it, tried to do the "plug" thing but ending up welding flat stock to it instead.

    Cool 8). I was initially looking for a set of Black Floyds for my build, but they were gonna cost me over $300 for the pair in Australia :shock: . Thought about it for a while, then decided against it.

    Re: New School "Jacked It Up"

    You could rob the BB off an OCC StingRay. The rear on those is wider than what I think you're trying to squeeze into your frame, that BB would definitely be wide enough.

    I'm lovin' this build so far, keep it up.

    Cheers,

    Mountain bike cranks usually are well offset. Then just take off the smaller rings.
