    Mike - you always do what everybody else wishes they could do, think up a crazy idea that might work, but yours always seem to work. Another amazing bike. I feel lucky to get to see them in person once in a while. Very cool again. :mrgreen:

    I'm feeling everything but the stem/handlebar. IMHO a double clamp and a motocross handlebar and it would be perfect.

    mike,
    how does the double brake in the back work with one lever?
    is there some sort of coupler for the cables you can get?

    This bike turned out great, love the monster braking and great amounts of detail.

    But I'd be afraid to get it dirty! :D

    In the pictures it looks like he used a gyro BMX cable. That is the type that is usualy found on the front of BMX bikes.

    Good morning all…
    I’m thinking all the klunkers turned out great…
    GOOD JOB EVERYONE…
    Got my headbadge finished…
    I stamped it and then filled the letters with solder…
    Not near the contrast I wanted, but it will have to do…
    Might make another and paint the letters for better contrast…
    Red got her first taste of snow today…
    Made her sit for photos before she could play…

    I can’t find my front derailler for the life of me…
    She is a manual shift at the front right now…
    I pick a front chainwheel and go…
    I’ll get her fixed up as soon as I locate my missing derailler…
    As always I had a great time…
    It’s been fun…
    And we’ll see you in the next build off…
