    Or this one that stole all my cassette spacers.

    Where I live, there are so many weir bikes. One old mountain bike was covered in green fur and made to look like Trash Monster from Sesame Street or something. It also had big eyes attached to the handlebars.

    Or what about the bike that eventually became my fixie. If I could, I would buy those wheels. Someone already bought them a long time ago.

    If strung out on weed and beer, they're not going to be riding the bike. Doesn't matter if the brakes work. LOL

    The front wheel is cool, but the back wheel is just a cheaper, 27 inch wheel with a 5 speed freewheel.

    @nd look, the rear wheel is a nicer wheel than I thought. Still not as good as the front one.

    I was to salvage this bike and I noticed that there were 2 carbon headset spacers in the space between the BMX quill stem and the headset top nut. Carbon headset spacers on a cheap threaded headset? How to rice your Target fixie.

    It was like this, but without the pennies.

    Bottom bracket... tearing into someones father/son project and discovering that they used cups and lockring from an adjustable bb on a Shimano UN sealed bottom bracket. You’d think that it would be impossible to tighten the cups down due to lack of room in the BB shell... you would be wrong... they used so much force to tighten the cups the outer races were torn off the bearings.... anything worth doing is worth overdoing, right?!

    I have used many of these. How would you mate that with an adjustable?
