    Those TA cranks always are a good choice.

    I know you guy like pics, so here's a few of the wheels, had these super moto tires lying around and decided to try them on, I think I'm going to use them for a while since right now this bike will see more street riding. Also playing with some blue anodized aluminum foil on the pro class wheels.
