    Its not "ghetto backyard engineering". Just fabrication. I take that as kind of an insult.

    I was thinking that might be the case. But, I don't think he ment anything evil by it.

    We did this in my families 2000sqft machine shop. "Ghetto" and "backyard" is an insult considering the person that built these has also built $50,000 dollar sand cars from the ground up properly.

    Yes it does. Drivetrain is perfectly quiet! A delight to ride.

    chill man, i was giving you a complement. but now that you have brought up that you build $50000 sand cars and get all worked up you sound like an ass. and those welds look pretty damn janky from someone who has a professional machine shop.

    It's not very cool of you to insult somebodys work like that. Do you tig weld aluminum?

    no, but if i was talking up how i did it in my huge machine shop i sure as hell wouldn't post up some pieces that looked like a ten year old welded them together.

    If you can't tig weld aluminum then STFU because you do not know what you are talking about.

    Ton's and ton's of great looking bikes!

    Here is mine after a few upgrades.

    Switched to a 1X10 set up with a 34 up front.
    E.13 XCX chainguide. This is my main gripe about this bike. Has no ISCG tabs and press fit BB. Now the 2013's have the ISCG so that was somewhat of a bummer!
    Shorter stem at 70mm. Still thinking about bumping it down to a 50.
    Going to be getting wider bars. 730-750 mm size
    And a dropper post.

    That does preclude you from knowing what it takes to produce a nice weld on a small and odd-shaped piece though. I don't tell Brandon Semenuk how to do a backflip because i think the way he does his looks ugly, even though i have never done one myself. If you don't have prior experience doing something, don't open your mouth about it. I don't mean any disrespect and i definately don't want you to hate me. But please, don't criticize on somebodys work. If you were to tig weld a small piece of aluminum, you would quickly realize it is not an easy task.

    you brought heat on yourself. all i did was complement you and you turned it into an insult. you started spouting off about how you have a big machine shop and that led me to the obvious observation that despite all that stuff your welds are crappy. so what if someone doesnt know how to do it? does that mean they cant have opinions? your telling me you have no opinions on stuff you dont do?

    I'm not sure but I'm going to guess you were asking about the chainring on my bike. It's a chromag chainring.

    If you meant it as a compliment, i am sorry. The wording came off as somewhat insulting. What if i said you had a ghetto backyard bike? Or your bike was built in a ghetto backyard way? Be honest. These are also pictures. The finished product in person is somewhat appealing and i have gotten compliments on it. The weld isn't a perfect stack of dimes, but like i said, i was trying to weld a small odd- shaped peice that could not be clamped to another extremely odd-shaped CAST aluminum piece. Cast aluminum heats a little differently than normal aluminum.

    It was a compliment. Maybe he didnt word it exactly as you would have liked but he wasnt reading your resume when he said it. Accept it and move on already.

    Nice bike though.
