    Rear Brake?

    Yo Eric, That is sweet!

    Are you going to add a rear brake or just run fixed all year?

    never fix what is not broken

    she's fixed for a bit, just another trick to kick up the horse power. This is going to be the main bike this year with the steel angel in the wings just in case. The bike is Ti with a pink front end-flames into harlequin pink/green/gold/blue with pismatiqe over coat and the kittys masked into the pink...the boys figured it was time to make me prove myself on an even pink-er rig. We'll see.

    Phil Wood SSpeed. The tension comes from the Eccentric BB...it looks like the deal for disc brakes and easy wheel changes. I'll keep notes and share

    As some one that has seen and molested Eric's new bike, I can attest the photos do not truly capture beauty of that paint job. Which should upset me since he borrowed my camera for the photos.

    is that a 29er? or just a regular white fork?

    You HAVE to be faster than everyone else to ride a bike like that.

    Iíve seen some swanky rides on this board, but this rig takes the cake. That is the absolute coolest SS bike I have ever seen. I donít have the balls, let alone the legs and lungs required to ride a bike like that.

    i have a 29r on the way, but nowhere near as pretty as that. Do you run the white fork all the time or do you still use your rigid?

    Wow, that bike is the shiznit!

    Did you come up with that elaborate gorgeous paint scheme or just tell IF to come up with something with flames and Hello Kitties and pink?

    One more kitty accessory

    Hello Kitty tires are nice, but it might also need this nifty Jandd handlebar bag.



    But seriously, IF creates sublime works of bicycle art, and this is right up there with the best of their efforts.
