    great build-off. i greatly enjoyed it as always. i have found that creating the build thread, documenting ideas and progress, and feedback/ideas/parts from fellow members helps me a lot. the finished project benefits. thank you all again. now the hard part - i only get to choose 5 out of the lot!

    BO15 fly my zephyr

    was originally planning a bmx cruiser build w/ bmx fork and bars. used the fork on last build, though i do have another, but decided to go with fork that came w/ frame. unfortunately the truss rods i have are too short, possibly for a 24" bike. i have some painted ones, but wanted chrome, so...

    setting up drivetrain. looks like cog/chainring alignment is close enough. that is good. :p unfortunately, nos skippy chain is not long enough. i'm REALLY glad i kept those old skiptooth chains. is there anything worse than needing something not easily found that you sold or threw away? not...

    sooooooooo, ordered the cone wrench neither i nor the lbs had, took a week to arrive. ordered the no-turn washer kit, which took 2 weeks to arrive. good news, these washers will work on my straight dropouts. found the skiptooth conversion cog i had bought years ago, and decided to compare to...

    so the skiptooth cog is too thick for the nexus 7 hub. thanks for the reply, that's what i'm looking for. i'll check that out. i'm going to commit to this wheelset, as i don't currently have a multispeed bike. if i have to, i'll just run 1 inch pitch chain and ring. straightened the dropout...

    The 5th Annual OddJob Awards!

    cool awards and winners. how about a "switched" model award?... i'm not a muscle bike guy, but looking at these winners, i noticed "sting rat". very cool build with the gearing and brake system. well done sir!
