    New (to me) Singular Swift Build

    Got a frame from Deeps Elgnis that was cracked at the seatstay and Chainstay weld. long story short welded it back together (welds might not be the prettiest but the tubes will break before these welds) and building it up. My surly karate monkey fork will be in tomorrow (I will post pictures) so i should be good to ride after that. next week i will get my XTR brakes for my superfly 100 and will put the carbon elixirs on this bike. Super pumped to ride it big thanks to Deeps Elgnis for all the help.

    That will be a cool bike when you are done. Keep the pics coming. Singular Swifts are so classic (and classy) but can I have my sign now because I just realized that is single speed backwards

    Have a good ride!

    Don't let anybody make you feel that way, crazybeach. This is singlespeeding, we're already dumbasses, right? So you make your own machine and it's a little different than anybody elses'. Isn't that what this is all about? Don't let the bastards get ya down. Hold your head up and ride proud. Smoke Luckys. Get a neck tattoo. Do the girl next door. It's your life. **** 'em.

    P.S. Your chain wasn't upside down.

    Hey, i apologize for the harsh words used. I guess that's how i express my concern in a non **** way. Maybe we are just saving your ass and make you realize that the clump of weld isnt looking good. But hey its your bike, feel free to do whatever, ride it. If you were expecting some applaude here on SS forum and failed, try frame building.
