    Blinglespeed?

    Not a whole lot of bright colors on this one. In fact, ATMO it doesn't really scream blinglespeed at all until you get in close, kind of like the Coconino in Celt's thread.

    This frame had originally been posted in one of the other enormous "Post your SS" threads, with an almost entirely different build. I think the only things that survived to this build were the handlebar, grips, pedals, and tires.

    I thought of posting it in the rigid 26er thread, but I think it dropped off into the archives.

    I'm having trouble uploading pics to MTBR, so more photos can be found here.

    Sorry for this huge image; apparently, tinypic does not, in fact, create tiny pictures.

    Nice bike, but it's geared too low to be bling bling.

    C'mon now... the more titanium you use, the lighter the bike.

    Uh... right?

    Anyway I'm just kiddin' around. I like that bike a lot. I mean a LOT.

    NICE RIDE, VERY NICE.
    not usually a fan, but the Lugs look nice.

    what tubing/frame weight?

    have you run any other 'shaped' bars besides the 'flo-s'?
    if so, how do they compare?

    the dual fork setup is cool.............although I have gotten spoiled with disk.

    I'm a big fan of lugs. I think these are a Pacenti set.

    Tubing is Dedacciai - not sure which set. Forgot to weigh the frame when it was bare; it's on my to-do list at the next overhaul.

    the Flos have been the only alt-bars I've ridden extensively. The designer and I did a little time together when we were both working retail and he turned me onto them. I like that the bends are such that you pretty much don't have to change stem lengths from your old handlebar, and the sweep and width aren't so freaky that I feel like I'm riding a Dutch commuter, or an OCC chopper.

    Disks (and probably swinging dropouts) will definitely be on the next frame; since this one came with track ends and cantilever posts, I thought I would keep it old skool and stick with V's front and back rather than try running a mullet.

    Nice! Rigid, ss, low gearing, platform pedals: my kind of bike!
