    That sure is black. Did you ever think about a little red pinstriping just to touch things off?

    Stealthy it isn't but Funky it is. What kind of frame is that? Looks slick.

    just a random frame I got from my work,be like a walmart 20"mtb,I put on some crap 26"forks to chopper it,got rid of the gears and bars cos they had more rust than the titanic,whiped out the trusty flat black paint and vulaaar,one happy 4yr old.

    Stealthy? Well, at least in appearance, if I had a better rear tire that wasn't all deformed and properly setup brakes it'd be a lot quieter.

    A little more stealthy, better ergos, and it has a rear brake finally. It physically can't run a bigger tire in the rear, 26" wheel in a frame built for a 24. I might be able to squeese a 2.1 in there but the 2.0 is about the biggest it'll run and have anything better than a slick for tread. Had the bars laying around off of one of the vintage MX bikes, the rest of the stuff I've had laying around waiting to go on this bike off of the old one. Didn't realise I hadn't cut those zip ties till after I took the pick, oh well...

    It's actually red, but I already took that one back off. I remembered that I had a 1" threadless headset laying around off my old RL440 frame, so now it's running a hybrid threadless/threaded set. I swapped some un-cut (old steerer was cut then brazed together to shorten it) forks on after sanding the threads down ever so slightly so I could slide the threadless set top race and Redline stem on, then I have a regular threaded set lock nut on in lieu of a compression bolt. It's odd, but it works better as I swapped a better set of less bent forks that the lower race actually presses onto. Then I tore the valve stem off of the front tube pumping it up before I got the chance to ride it.
