    head tube angle question

    hi guys i have a bit of an update friend of mine said he'd weld it up :D so my next question is is it ok to leave assembled or even have the cranks flipped already or do i need to pull it all to be sure nothing arcs and sticks together? (if that could/would happen) thanks in advance :)

    head tube angle question

    ya i figured as much with the derailleur do you think the springs would be strong enough to lift the chain if mounted upside down i know the tension would be on the bottom chain so you wouldn't want to have it just mounted on the bottom anyway so as far as steering the angle shouldn't matter...

    head tube angle question

    ok so lets see if this works :) there we go half a bike with a little bike with big fork on it from the other side the idea would be to cut off the fork-ends and rotate the fork to meet with the seat tube to make the proper BB spacing and head angle

    Stewart Warner Floating Hub

    that's cool it looks like its offset? so it would be like using drop-spindals on the front of your car?

    Bike "fit" in regards to design

    180s? are you referencing crank length? if so I'm guessing it really is a personal preference to what works best there? and what ends up being comfortable

    WINTER BUILD OFF: ~irRATional~ Fe2O3

    how big are they? if there the size they are on my screen could u use them for big handle bar caps? maybe if u used horn style bars so they hook forward and the skulls are facing forward

    Firestone Stretch

    with this one it looks like you could put a deck on the top bar to stand on ad really tall handle bars it would be like an adult scooter maybe with smaller wheels to get the bottom of the "bike" close to the ground :) it looks sweet tho :D

    Saying Goodbye To The Bike Hobby

    some times, unless you just cleaning the bikes up to sell them, people will expect to pay more for a customized bike. so for example you buy a kids bike for free to $5 clean it up ask 10 peeps will be well there's nothing special, however if you get the same bike paint it a random color and...
