Thanks for the compliments. One more vote for the minimalist approach.
The frame has such cool lines to start.
“Snazzy” ? My dad use to say that. That’s super funny. He would have got a kick out of your post.

I’m glad you like the way it’s setup.
Version 2 was looking for a more lean (vs styling) look.
You know, it all chrome because I hate stripping, painting, and cleaning.

Yeah this bike is relatively heavy (29 lbs) compared to my road bike (aluminum frame and carbon fork at 20lbs- 28mmConti) and my single speed (aluminum frame & fork, 18 lbs – 32mmConti).
I’ll have to check it for “the snake bite” pinch flat. I had just pumped it up to 90 psi so that should have been okay. Plus, I was setting the bike down versus riding off curbs (which I do sometimes on the other bikes). If I see a snake bite, I’m going to mount the 35mm Resist tire in the front. Then It would only be Big and less Big vs Big and Little), lol.
Thanks for a good reminder to look again at those tube popping issues.
I still have to swap out to the skinny tires for the next speed runs so better to find the real issue.

I couldn’t agree with you more,
I hope its someone else’s ‘Liner though because the others had a lot more work go into them.

De Ja Vu...
Has anybody a total of who all entered one?
I was looking back on my posts and I kinda promised a lot more than I delivered
All metal seat
I guess I have a few more things I want to do on this one but some of the modern conversions
took longer and more effort than originally planned.
Who would have thunk?
Maybe I'll try to get some of these ideas on my other 'Liner.
I want to get that done for the Mpls Messaround on Labor day.
I better get to work soon...
