    not my cup of tea, but it's nice! only one thing: you should use mid cage rear derailleur, just because that would look better with the 1*9 setup. anyhow, your bike rocks! :thumbsup:

    The long cage was a free so I went with it. Works fine. Thanks for the heads up :D

    not only looks better, but with a mid cage derailleur a shorter chain could be used and it could be kept more tight by the der. ---> less chain drop, less chain chips on the frame, less weight :) and of course a better look. :)

    Very sweet looking bike! Is that a bottle opener that is mounted between your headset and stem?!

    I get alot of good and bad feedback on my bike. People say bars are way tooooo wide and the derailure should be a midcage, why a brooks saddle. I love it, thats why I had a custom bike made and I run different parts. I like the fact that there will not be another bike like it. PURE CUSTOM:thumbsup:

    Haha, you're right. Nothing wrong with it at all. I love brooks saddles. There is nothing like real leather plus not too many saddles out there as comfortable as a brooks. Nothing wrong with the handlebar that I can see. It's not like you're a bike messenger riding in between cars in traffic that you need something super narrow. Enjoy that IF and make sure you use that bottle opener as much as you can. :thumbsup:
