    The Wily Cometh...

    I just sent the funds to Brad, now the fun begins!
    Right now, here's where I stand: 29" singlespeed (duh!), Paul's dropouts, rim brake.
    Light/baby blue, ivory panels. We'll be basing the geometry loosely on the Karate Monkey, with some input from Brad's experience; i.e. a slightly longer top tube.
    I'm really excited! This is my first custom frame. I can't wait...

    Whiskey is my yoga.

    STOKED! Is he going to bend the seattube? Hey, something to think about...

    Since you ride fixed and if you plan on flip'n the hub every now and again, you might not want the Paul's. A buddy (JuanSpeed who used to post here a while back) has the Paul's and has had problems bending them, both when the wheel is all the way forward and all the way back. They are long and soft. He has had to tweak them quite a bit just to get the wheel in and out.
    Night has fallen.
    And there's nothin' we can do about it.
