That bike is horrid.
As are those shitty shitty boots.

edit: is that Chicago? Looks like it.

dubba edit: it is. I spy licence plates. If I ever encounter that thing in the wild, I'm stomping the frame and putting it out of its misery.

^^ I like it (except I'd swap the straight blade fork out). Got any plans to build any more bikes?

thanks... I hope to build more frames in the future, but I don't have the money or space to set up shop at the moment. I'm focusing on school right now.

It wasn't very long ago that I thought my bike was the coolest shit ever... Looking back at it helps keep perspective on judging other people's crap.

I've begun to think my bike was a bit tarck before... things have changed though

I've replaced the cranks. And I'm building up a carbon tubular wheelset for the track... Black and gold tarck?

It's good to see that kind of humility in people when it comes to things like this. Very respectable.

i've decided i'm totally down with the whole trick track thing, just not the aesthetic or culture. but i think i want to start doing more tricks on my bike.

edit: i thought of this to say after i hit post: i'm not going to stop myself from having fun on my bike just because a couple of douchbags with ugly bikes do it too.

Boy oh boy. I never had a bandanna on any of my bikes but I did rock flipped risers for a hot minute. So droopy and uncomfortable.
