    New Klunker Bike...

    Hey all, Been quite a while since I posted here, time for some updates.... Built a new "klunker" bike to ride, I had an old Schwinn twin bar frame laying around, couldn't let it go to waste, so I built this up.... Most of the parts on this bike are off my 2007 SE OM Flyer, the fork is a Pyramid...

    OM flyer

    Hey all, had to bring this thread back from the dead.... I went and raced my OM tonight, this was the first time in probably ten years I had wheeled a BMX bike in competition, I was just glad I could still balance in the gate, and I was glad I came home in one piece.... this was a get together...

    OM flyer

    The day the music died

    I used to be a DJ, the nice thing about playing that American Pie song was, you had plenty of time to go to the bathroom, get a drink, chat up some girls, etc.etc.... That is gonna be a cool bike!

    who would like to take a little trip

    A bunch of IDIOTS!!!! The thing that is funny about something like this is, bike messengers and the like that ride like this are some of the most vocal and outspoken when it comes to bicycle riding rights, and getting bike lanes, more awareness, more bike parking, etc. etc.., then they act like...

    My new 5+pound Baby Blue bundle of Joy!

    Thanks Kev, most of the parts off it are from an FMF complete bike I parted out, I went with a "new" style build, rather than retro, it has a crankset that has a modern Isis drive BB, and some pretty light and trick wheels, I am not real fond of the radial laced front wheel, but I might leave...

    My new 5+pound Baby Blue bundle of Joy!

    I realize it's not a rat, but I love it, and SE was my first "good" bike, and I always wanted a Quadangle, so it's kind of a full circle thing for me, plus it's the 30th anniversary of SE Racing.....

    My new 5+pound Baby Blue bundle of Joy!

    I also found a matching pair of Vans for this ride, I ordered these from Zappos.com on Saturday, they were here Monday!!! They are a nice SE brown, with baby blue piping, laces, and the coolest part to me is, the bottom waffle tread is baby blue!!

    Critics needed.

    Are you trying to advertise that YOU yourself fix bikes, or that ANYONE can fix bikes, and they can learn how at this website? If it's the anyone can learn one, then change the "I can fix it" to a "YOU can fix it", would make more sense to me... cool shirt though.....
