    BUSS pictures..

    I washed off my buss today so I took some pictures to show you guys.

    BUSS aluminum frame with cromo fork.
    Thompson stem and seat post.
    wtb saddle
    xtr levers and brakes
    monkey lite xc 1.25" riser bar
    front wheel: king disc hub with mavic 618 rim
    rear wheel: paul hub with sun 0 lite rim
    oem race face turbine cranks with spot guard
    irc mythos xc tires
    new belgium brewing bell

    I have a surly tug nut on the way so I can put my other king, mavic rear wheel on the rear. And I plan on putting a gold chris king headset too.

    Very nice. How do you like the Mythos tires on a fully rigid bike?

    I've always loved that color! But how the heck do those cranks still look so new?

    the irc tires are the same ones i used on my geared bike last year, i plan on getting something like a wtb 2.1 to help out on the front with the ridgid fork. when i ride and it feels to stiff i let out some air to help. there is some wear on the cranks but i guess i am one of those guys that don't hit my foot on the crank are every time around so the faces of them look good, the bottoms of the arms have marks from logs and rocks and other crap.

    I have a CUSS, and a W-T-B weirwolf 2.5 fits in the back and made a HUGE difference in the ride. I dont know if the frames are the same, just different color (mine has disc tabs in the back), but it's worth a try. I also have the 2.5 in the front. GO BIG!
    What's up with the disc hub in the front? future plans?

    I'm running those on my rigid SS also, and like scottms33 said, they could be a little cushier. They roll really fast, which is nice, but they're not as high-volume as some other 2.1's.

    That is very nice.
    I must say that getting rid of the gold stem and handlebars makes a BIG improvement over the original.
    I suppose it is another bike for me to add to my list to look at for when I get over there.
    What would an original one of those be worth in reasonable condition??

    Here's mine...

    I didn't realize how i've beaten this bike until i saw the pristine images of your BuSS. This bike does everything i ask with no complaining. light, stiff, and able. I expect to be riding it for a long time.

    Check out the Classifieds under "Rigid Singlespeed."
    I am selling mine for $450. It is mostly original with some brand new parts and some older parts. Not as tricked out as Scottms' BuSS, but very similar. Get in touch with me if you would like!

    hey!

    Yo Scott, we should have tested that tugnutt proper like when i changed the tire, with the last bottle of High Life, even though they are a twist off. oh well.

    thanks for the shop support, the dog and i appreciate it.

    the Bianchi does look rather nice these days, just itchin for the Gold Pimp Daddy King headset.

    over and out
    nate
