    The Pug Lives (sort of)

    Some 4 months have passed since my desire to collect the necessary parts to begin the assem and although it's not complete i suspect it won't be long.

    Many thanks out to the FAT community for assistance along the way.

    it will be fully self sustained thereby transfering the current to said rider and able to leap small buildings with mere pedal strokes.

    Wow, pulling out screws that are in the studs ... maybe filling the tires with Stan's is not such a good idea.

    Aww, man. You're nowhere near done.
    The last 20% of the build takes 50% of the time.
    Your post count will hit 700 before you finish!

    Very nice.

    Call me picky but I'm always surprised when I see people running their brake levers up against their grips.

    Nice grips btw.. What type are they?

    thanks, more than likely i'll adjust once ready to ride but for now it'll be OK. These are race face strafe lock-ons.

    If not for 2 other rides to choose from surely the walls would be my place as well.

    As the days pass I have mixed emotions about this project, many days i'm super excited for the build to be completed and plant my achin arse on the saddle and explore, other days i relish in the fact the build is gone on for numerous months, why? well it keeps me from starting yet another but also like savoring the moments it's taken to get here, yeah i know it's sappy for a guy but hell i don't work @ the LBS nor do i have connections in order to obtain 'deals' but rather pay as it goes and when affordable because i sure as hell can't add it to my diet nor can i use it for shelter alas who knows when the final bolt is tightened? not i.
