    Re: Street Skinny Typhoon-Brake done!

    Got these parts in the mail yesterday for the foot brake. A Problem Solvers Travel Agent and a post mount cable adjuster. The Travel Agent has a tighter radius than the noodle and can be set up for double travel cable pull. I now may weld a small spring mount tab to the seat tube the cable tie is a bit tacky...GdCast still no pict?

    This bike is awesome! This has got to be one of the most creative, coolest, fabbed -up and well thought out bikes I have ever seen! As I said back in Jan. "I'm really liking this without paint", I still think for some reason this thing looks killer without it. Also, let me add that this thing looks so freakin good that it beats the stuff that some people post on a regular basis! Congrats Man! Job well done!
