    Very nice! If you are going to use it to commute I hope you have a way to secure it when arriving at your destination. I might even cross the line for that bike.

    The pictures where taken with a black felt back drop and soft lighting. The exposure and contrast was adjusted also to get the effect.[​IMG]

    I found the music online on a free download site.
    I rode it yesterday evening very briefly until the rear wheel slipped in the drop outs. :blackeye: I walked it back to the shop and put it back on the stand. Apparently I had overlooked tightening the axle nuts properly in my haste to finish for photos. I'm going to go back over all of the fasteners before I take it out again.

    I basically did the same thing I forgot to fasten the coater brake stay and when I hit the brakes it spun back & loosed up the hub . Back to the stand for another try !

    You blew us away again Jim! I have a high dollar bicycle store across the street from where I work, I think their cheapest bike is about $700 bucks, they have nothing on this bike. I don't see many bike companies out there today that are building with this quality or just plain awesomeness. Very professional looking. Great job!!
