    Oh yes!!!
    I loved your build thread, the whole thing is wicked cool KOTA but you know this. Knowing you personally this needed a pack of cigarettes under the pedal :wink: for the money shot.

    You pulled all that together real nicely. Final bar ends choice was a good one.

    how low can you go! 8) incredible job of mixing so many different parts, and actually making it "look right"! :D the cool factor is off the hook. i think this bike needs to be on a future RRB t-shirt! :wink:
