    Someone got carried away with the day-glo stickers.

    Bright colors but not day-glo. Digital pics pop them.

    Quick ? for you Shiggy. What combo calipers/levers are you running? Standard Avid calipers or Avid road calipers? Levers look to be D-C 287 (V or standard?).

    Sweet Rig

    hey Shig-meister!

    gotta love the M.Chester. true functional titanium art.
    what length and brand of cranks are you using? and while we are at it, what is your BB for good measure (no pun intended!).

    thanks- and stay colorful, man!

    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead!

    Well, I'm not afraid to buck the trend and call it as it is: FUGLY!!!

    Good to see a rider with a sense of humor, though.

    V.1 Avid mtn calipers w/ Dia Compe 287V levers. I much prefer the magnet pad holders. Just scored a new-in-box v.1 Avid the other night.

    165mm rotors? Reason I ask is I've got an old White Ind 3-bolt hub for old RS disc brakes and just found the rotor at Cambria. It's 165 and I'm trying to determine which caliper and lever I want to use. I've got both Avid road calipers and v.1 calipers as well as 287 V and standard levers. Too many combos. Thanks for the info.

    I use 185 mm Galfer rotors.

    I heard that the RS 3-bolt hub BCD was the same as the IS 6-bolt.

    The RS 3-bolt rear hub is the same BCD as the IS 6, but the front is a much larger BCD - somewhere in the neighborhood of 60mm. Something I found out after I built my wheels up.

    Looking good Shiggy. Rode with Nat a few weeks back, and he felt he was in sacred ground when he saw your bike first hand.

    I like....

    it! That color scheme is you Shig. I bet the wheels look cool spinning at speed.

    One question....are you going to get matching sunglasses to wear when riding it?

    The Cateye cages are flexible. The lower "bottle" is my tool kit and is never removed while riding. The seat tube cage is the main drink bottle and the top DT cage usually holds a light battery.

    The front fender and...

    the air pump needs to be painted to match the bike. Nice bike!

    Paul Disk Unit. It threads onto the axle of the Paul WORD Disk hub. It can be used with any frame. There is a longer arm to connect to the canti boss for retrofits.

    Yeah, I've seen 'em 4 times live (that I remember). Now that I know where Reseda is, it's even cooler.
