    Huh. Those horizontal dropouts are identical to those on my fixation.

    Enjoy that ride. Equally a blast as a commuter and a mtb.

    Hmm. I'm going out on a limb with this guess - a Fetish Fixation.

    only the coolest fixation around. i have yet to really see anyone else do anything with the fetish frames. they all seem to get built up as beater bikes.

    anna nicole at what point in her carrer? i got my first discipline almost 2 years ago now and had that frame setup a number of ways. it took everything i've thrown at it. both my disciplines have something of a xc setup now and ride awesome. i rode my fixation once with a ghetto setup and it was ok, i didnt really ride it very hard i just took it around the block. i'm going for a burlier setup on it so i can take in the skatepark too. fetish is a cool company and they are constantly coming out with new stuff. they are really my main source of motivation now. i gotta make that money so i can buy more fetish frames. i can't wait to see what their bmx stuff looks like.

    Wheels are built

    I finally had an awesome experiance at a LBS. was shocked at how cool these guys were and how well they took care of me. didnt have the spokes in silver so he sold me black ones for the same price. if only all the shops were so cool. got my parts and went to my dad's for the build. i'll post pics when i get home. it's finally starting to look like a bike

    also the same as my soul cycles hardline (i think the story is that one of the guys who started up SC was working at fetish when he designed that frame...)

    soul cycles

    I had this frame for a few weeks, got it on ebay a year ago and it was a very good deal. I put all my beater stuff on it. It rode way harsh, AL frame and fork beat the hell out of me so I sold it locally.

    Also - it is the same frame as the Fetish Fixation. When I got it, the address for Soul Cycles was in the same city in AZ as Fetish so i mapquested both addresses. Though they had different street addresses, the star was in the same place for both on the mapquest map.

    Anyway - It looked nice.

    the soul frames are cheaper, i'm not sure of the actual cost because i bought mine as a second hand complete (as in the pic, and have since switched around a lot)- 740 CDN or about 500 USD. see ridesoul.com for this year's prices.
