    Chad can perhaps hook you up too. His local dawg does the powdercoating. Syncros does white wheelsets that are better than the outlaws too.

    Here are some exclusive pics that Chad at redbarn just sent me; this is Fo's completed budget RFX. He never did say what kind of budget it was:





    check out his cranks:



    nice custom paint job Fo' picked out:



    somewhere underneath all that bling is a 66SL ATA fork;



    Sweet ride you got there Fo'!

    I am always working on it. If nothing else, my goal of ultimate homer poseur may be realized one day. the recipe for this build was quite simple really.....part had to be white, red, or black, and bonus points if heavier than needed. nothing else really mattered to be honest nor should it. some people use logic to build bikes....to each their own

    ...i like orange hair...really!

    Interesting wheels...not bad! Are you sticking w/ white, red and black as you say, or are you gonna end up with a rodeo clown like....????


    btw- I got the same wheels on order except in very boring anti-bling black & silver....

    Those wheels would look awesome on my all white ElementSC.
    I'm sure they'll look great on the RFX........that is you must make a concerted effort to keep them clean. Carry the bike over mud puddles and DON'T ride when the ground is damp and they will stay nice n' fresh.




    Better yet, just keep it hung on your 'rec room" wall.

    glad you remembered. but dont forget the X7 rear der. Granted, the only reason i got it is because the X9 does not come in all black, but still.....

    my brakes were sort of budget since I decided not to get dangerboy levers so that makes a few budget parts. and the Hone cranks are budget by most standards.....i just dig the 2-ring hones and the reinforced pedals inserts and steel spindle are a plus.

    I got bad news for ya, faux. I have some white 66 lowers and a white saddle for my white 6-Pack. Your $10,000 "budget" wheels still have you bringing up the rear.

    Those wheels give me wood!

    Don't listen to these fools Fo... us blingahaulics gotta stick together. That was you at the last meeting wasn't it?
    "Hi my name is FoShizzle and I'm a blingahalic... it's been nine hours since I last called Chad..."










    (I'm not even going to mention it's taking you longer to order your bike than I took to build mine...and I took forever)

    hey zilla, no worries. if nothing else, i have learned to ignore anybody who doesnt agree with me i knew you would understand. these fools dont understand that it is really not our fault.....we were simply born to pimp.

    and for the record, Chad has been PHENOMENAL. While the bike has taken a while, it was due to the fact that the fork i picked only became available about a week ago so we had to wait anyway.....i changed my wheelset order on chad AGAIN only last week, and i did not even close on the brake order till this Monday. Chad has the patience of a Saint.

    oh yeah, aquaholic is still an ahole in case you didnt know.

    and check PM zilla
