    GMO Homegrown

    I wasn't sure what to do with this '97 Homegrown frame because the bb threads are mixed up so I decided to turn it into commuter. I found a True Temper fork made by Burley that is a near perfect color match and only cost 8$, and used some adapters to run 700c wheels. The final weight without fenders was only 20lbs and it handles quite interestingly!

    That's great. It's good to have some mystery in your life.

    I know, it's like enough with these bikes we know are nice, how about the ones where we can't even tell?

    Thanks, my screen needed some yogurt and granola on it......

    I'm guessing your HTA is somewhere around, 90? Might go a long way to answering this particular mystery of life.

    awesome. I love modifying - You made extreme changes to the bike, and it came out looking clean and non-Frankenstein-ish.

    Is the change with the handling that it is more "twitchy"?

    Thanks! Yes, it's very twitchy, but it makes it fun to ride.

    It's reminiscent of the grapefruit on the cover of Over-Nite Sensation:
