    Finally Finished My SS

    Edit: guess some people can see it and some people can't... here's a link: http://picasaweb.google.com/marvin.h...eat=directlink

    Took me a while... kid, surf, work, video games.. etc., but I finally finished! This thing rides like a tank but is super comfortable! (post pic: removed cantilever thingies, scored some carbon headset spacers)... best of all, I put it together all by myself! Searching for parts and putting it together was super fun!

    Build:
    Surly 1x1 from Jensonusa-$451n
    Surly Torsion handlebar- $25u
    M543 Cranks-$50n
    Thomson seatpost-$35u
    BB7 and Levers-$50u
    TBC Stepdown Pedals-$55n
    Transition Revolution 32 w/rotors, 32T Surly cog and bashguard: $250u
    Small Block 8's-$30u
    Cane Creek S3, SRAM PC830, Easton Vice Am Stem '08 and Surly Tuggnut-$99n
    Hope 20mm to QR adaptors-$19u
    Peaty grips-$20n
    XT Skewers-$12u
    WTB Saddle-Free-just had to wake up early for the Performance bike grand opening

    I bought some tools: torque wrench (craftsman beam from Sears, BB tool from Nashbar and steerer tube guide cutter from Performance bike). Factor in stuff that I bought and don't need, I'm a couple hundred over what I really wanted to spend. I blame it on the wheels but glad I got them. I've scared 2 people already and I've only ridden it for a total of 30 minutes.

    Now to the pics.. let me know if I did something wrong. I recently added a rear bike rack... now I just need to acquire a milk crate and I'll be ready for night school.



    Marker used to color the E red.

    My streaker sticker is peeling off.

    Straight.. or straight enough.. had to use two 10sp spacers.. thank you road cassette
