    new uses for spent juices

    Here's the brown.
    I was watching Telemundo and saw lots of clevage.

    Anyway, this monkey is a badass. A commuter that will also see the the light of dirt. Just a crank swap and a short chain, and whalah! I do need to take some action against the tires. I need big slicks, but that will wait.

    This bike has parts from as far as 1993: Cranks, front brakes, levers...from my old Trek 930. To me, this is SS a la 29er. Do with a new frame, then really do with what you have in the parts bin. I only spent $$$ on the frame. Everything else I already had in wait, collecting dust.

    It will be ENOfied (noneccentric) eventually, but for now, it's a beater. My black monkey is sleeping in the garage, all nice and clean, awaiting spring. Oh, 42/16

    GA! Can't wait for spring, and summer! and FALL! Why? Not only will I not wear winter biking clothes, Annabel will be walking, we'll go to biking and family events, and Revenge of the Sith is coming out. WAHOOO!!!!

    Bite me.

    Beautiful bike, Ernesto. It is nice to have a dedicated beater... especially one as nice as that one.

    To me, it's a bike, a mountain bike, the preferred choice for riding in inclement weather.
    It will be taken care of, don't worry. I usually take good care of the things I work for to buy.

    This is deemed as the "other bike"

    I know what you mean. To me, every bike except for the one I ride on the trials for mountain rides is a beater.... even my campy equipped road bike. Oddly enough, my SS that I ride all the time is probably the bike most accurately described as a beater.

    "Hey pops! Take me to the movies!"
    me: sure thing kid! hop on the pegs...WEEEE!!!!

    That would be so badass!

    I fab'ed the cable hanger from a piece of Dove soap, then I put a metal glaze over it and had the guys from Spectrum Powderworks just look at it via online internet megaphone.

    Is dove strong enough? I know you tried that to cure your camp ass, but it did not work. I would think to hold up under the pressure at least ivory would need to be used.

    I don't like Ivory. Dries up my sack. I don't like Zest. Gives me a rash.
