    Thanks, Me too. I ordered them for my firebolt, but think they might look pretty boss on this build.

    With the new name, I think you need some 3G wheels!

    Now, I am thinking the Firebolt frame might lend itself better to the theme I have in mind.

    Thinking about throwing some Bright red and bright blue paint over the old black paint on the firebolt and giving it a patina'd look.

    Yup, making a trike that I had named The Growler. Got a new brewery down the street that inspired me.

    Very Cool.
    With your initial reply, it kind of read like you might have thought I stole your idea but I hadn't even seen your thread. I just wasn't sure what you were getting at, but we are on the same page now.

    In the past couple years our city of about 90K went from 2 micro breweries to a dozen or more. It's a good time to be living in Duluth.

    Can't wait to see what you come up with!

    nice! We're a town of 300K plus and just got our 3rd microbrewery. At least its only a couple of blocks from my house.
