Nice whip, I dig the crankset. Saddle angle is a little steep though. Info on wheels, specifically the rear?

me. I got one like this for cheap and just added a ton of stuff. Spray painted it also. Runs great. Don't get why these herbs buy thousand dollar bikes honestly
lol thats like comparing a civic to a wrx or any other high end sport compacts.
do only herbs buy high end sport compacts?

maybe those herbs that buy thousand dollar bikes 1. are enthusiasts 2. actually ride 3. have the money to spend?

are you going to have a video up?

I have never, in my life, edited video before. This is my first attempt to throw some footage together, and I did it really fast. I have an old computer and I was worried the program was going to crash on me at any second.

what gear ratios do you guys ride. not sure what to go for, bearing in mind I live in a REALLY hilly city.

my preferred street ratio is 48x17.   if you're skidding it gives you 17 skid patches.

46x17 wouldn't be a bad ratio either if you're climbing hills on the regular.

Yes! We have them in store at http://www.sir-pete.com. It's worth it. Price-quality is really good imo. PM me if you need more info!

what's the best gear ratio for riding in the city? preferably manhattan? 
i ordered the 'windsor hour' off bikesdirect and it should come tomorrow
but the only issue is that the cog is 16t and i've read that riding 48x16 could be hard

gear ratio is highly subjective, but i'd suggest ~75 gear inches for a beginner.  it really depends on personal preference, strength, and riding style, i.e. whether you like to 'spin' at a high cadence or 'mash' a large gear.

here's a chart for reference.  81 GI isn't terribly difficult but it wouldn't be my first choice.
cogs are relatively cheap and easily replaceable. just buy an EAI cog to attain the ratio you want.

^thanks for the quick reply my dude!
i'll check out my local bike shop for a 17t cog then if this ratio doesn't work out for me.
they should all be generally cheap right?

yeah, wouldn't expect to spend more than $30 on a simple cog (you can get a Dura Ace NJS for that price).

it's worthwhile to note the width of your drivetrain components though.  it'll likely be either 3/32" (commonly found in single-speed freewheel) or 1/8" (track oriented).  can sometimes mix and match widths without issue, but it's generally preferred to have a chainring, chain, and cog with matching widths to minimize lateral 'play' in your drivetrain.

Seat, handlebars, pedals/ clipless setup should be upgraded first imo. they come in contact with your body so make sure theyre comfortable.
