[Quote] Uh oh, I see Paul track ends! I'm trying to source some in the states for my lo pro but nobody has any. Can't wait to see that built Bood. Edit: Got some from Aspire Velotech.

Just added the brake from my broken Lo Pro as I've had a couple of scary incidents following both my girlfriend and my housemate, who both ride erratically. I still haven't used it though and will probably take it off again. This is my finished 'proper' bike. I say 'proper' because my Lo Pro is like a child's toy. This my friends is a classic bicycle, something I don't see enough from you guys in the states. Step your game up with the steel, it's not all about flips and tricks.

That's a shame you're selling your Vivalo bood. That is one sexy finish on that frame. My Bob Jackson is all built, I'll get some good pics up soon when I've got a bit of time.

Mos Def - The Ecstatic

[URL] My most eagerly awaited album release this year. I was in Dublin October 07 when he first played Auditorium and mentioned The Ecstatic, and I've been waiting ever since. The new track, Life Is Good, sounds like an attempt to recreate the magic of Umi Says.

Looking good as ever Booduh. Both the Pista Concept and Vigorelli used to be my porn frames but my tastes have altered to old Italian steel. Look for a fresh Bob Jackson coming tomorrow people. Build no.2.

[Quote] Who gives a fuck how much of the BB is hanging out? As long as your chainline is spot on it doesn't matter about a couple of mm's. You got plenty of bikes though. I could do with a beater in addition to my lo-pro.

[Quote] Used to run 42x16 but now I'm 48x18. I reckon I can pull up to 28-30mph in a sprint but I run out of power.

[Quote] They're not a rim to do tricks on. In the new year they will be releasing a stronger, but obviously heavier, H+Son rim built for tricks. I have one of the original H+'s on the rear and it's held up fine but I don't chuck my bike around. I also have one of the second generation H+'s for the front which they improved with the spoke eyelets. If you're tricking, wait. If you ride normally, street or track then get them. The London Fixed Gear Single Speed forums rate them highly.

Well if there's any technical questions about a frame or sizing let me know and I'll be happy to help. I just can't help you source parts or the frame.

Sorry Eddie I'm not from the States so I refrained from replying as any shops I recommended would have been of little use. Whatever frame you get, make sure you measure it all up and purchase the correct sized parts. I got most of my bits after looking around the net for the cheapest prices and I'm sure if you're on a really tight budget you could get the majority of parts cheaply on the net. And what's wrong with being a 'hipster faggot'? A lot of my parts were chosen based on aesthetics and it rides beautifully.

It sounds as corny and shit as Pharrell's In My Mind. Get back to the proper music Kanye, this shit is arrogant.
