    I pimped my ride...

    There is a new frame on the way... but, it will have the same scheme. I'm thinking a white Deity stem to top it off.

    I usually hate white (especially rims), but that looks sick!

    Yeah, I've had it out DJing several times already... the good thing about it is that everything gets the same shade of dirty. And, actually, the sides of the tires stay pretty white. A simple wash brings it back to new.

    Yeah, Ojai, I'm not a big fan of the white rims, either, and I wanted to try something different.

    BikeS, I'm getting a custom frame built by Simple. I'm gonna try out the high BB idea.

    Interesting build. I thought of "whiting out" my Roast, and even did a mockup:



    I decided to leave it blacked after getting quotes on professional paint jobs...

    Is 2w4s hitting on you?

    Yeah, I think I might go with the white stem. But, I don't know about the bars. I want to keep it black then white. Black rims, white tires. Black cranks, white pedals. Black bars, white grips. Black seat post, white seat...

    Also, I'd be surprised if Race Face didn't make the white Berreclough bar and stem available soon.

    Haha, fool. Got the rug at Lowes. They had a bunch of different patterns... mine is the coolest, though.

    That mock up looks fly. What seat is that on the Roast?? I couldn't find many white seats. I think I might switch to a white Odyssey Aitken seat.

    Haha, yeah, 2w4s is probably hitting on me. Luckily I know him and I'll be able to smack him around this weekend at Sheep Hills.

    yeah, I'm surprised as well.... especially since it seems about 75% or more of the recommendations for "needing" Deity gear is the fact that it's white....

    I like spray paint though, maybe it's the bmx'er in me.... but, haha, I haven't gone as far as spraying my spokes as I twirl my wheel...

    Don't do it! They're "gateway" tires and they lead to bad things:

    Cru, that's the best looking bike (colorwise) I've ever seen. When I put my self together a hot custom, I'm going for a similar coloration (gloss black instead of flat blue) and white rims instead of tires. My bar, stem and grip set up will be the opposite color scheme of yours (black stem n' grips, white bar) but I'll be running the same fork as you.
    I'm out of things to say . . .

    They are Kenda K130 beach cruiser tires. Honestly, I bought them because they are white, but I thought they might really suck. But, I've been DJing on them for the past week and I'm lovin em!! They roll a ton smoother and faster than my old Specialized knobbies and they have enough tread on the side to keep me from washing out. We'll see how long they hold up though. I'll post some pics of the whities in action soon.

    I think the tire only comes in one size, 26 X 2.125. The chain is a white chain I found on a lowrider bicycle supply website.
