    Wow! seriously nice!
    I have to admit this bike was never on my radar as a build I would possibly vote on, just not that into the triangle style frames, but wow man, I think you have done it! Seriously hard voting time coming up!!!
    Fantastic!

    Thank you for all the feedback, it's greatly appreciated!

    I haven't gotten it very fast, at 6'3" it isn't the most comfortable bike (my knees come up to my elbows) and I'd also need a hill to go down to even get out of the low gear of the rear hub

    Thank you, It's pretty cool seeing something physical that I only had in my head at the beginning.

    I'm already looking forward to next year, going to be in the Anything Goes category! :shock:

    I just clicked the link in your signature to find this beauty again. Still the best use of a Schwinn exerciser chainring EVER!!!!!

    Love it when you bump these builds I wouldn't see otherwise. Had to look through the build thread to see how the chainring was cut. Amazing work...:thumbsup::thumbsup:
