    LOL i wish. Apparently monsoon season decided to arrive because gallons of water have been falling out of the sky non stop. Seriously like 18" of rain in less than a week=weak. Hopefully soon though.

    Looks clean! Were you not able to get the single speed dropouts?

    Was going to be another $40 for the horizontal drop outs and already had the chain tensioner from another project. Will probably swap it out sometime down the road but for now its good as is. The tensioner is also helping with chain wrap on rear cog as its pretty small.

    Nice looking bike!


    I don't understand why this bike doesn't come with a SS dropout as stock? Seems like 95% of the folks out there would have no use for gears.

    I'm the 5%. Running mine with a 9 speed setup so I can do trail rides. But I am admittedly weird
