    Love it! The grips are the only thing bugging me. To shiny. How about getting some black cloth tape and wrapping them? Would keep the cool shape but add more of a rat texture.

    slowrider,
    This bike is just scary cool, you should consider building a 24" or 26" version too!

    BTW, this cable routing idea......GENIUS!
