Bike finished... Finally!

It's actually been done for a few weeks now, but i forgot to update the progress i made on the build in this blog. Whilst riding i've definitely noticed people staring at the machine beneath me, give a definite "Awww yeahhh" feeling.

So here's the finished thing:





Been on a few rides (nothing properly hard core until i'm confident it's not going to fall apart!)
Feels really good riding, air suspension has been adjusted and is really smooth. However the stem is a bit long for me, so i'll change that. I also need a new saddle, the one in the picture is a manky old one i found just to do the job in the meantime.

No other hitches really, brakes do rub a bit:



But I think that'll fix itself after i bed them in a bit more.

What do you guys think of the bike? :D

  6. Those gears on the back wheel are the most complicated ones I've ever seen. Hope they don't get messed up when switching gears carelessly at some point. That always happened to me :(

  9. Brakes used to rub an my bike so I took them off, now I have to give my self 10 seconds of so notice to use my feet to slow down and/or bail off my bike.

    I took everything I didn't need of my bike including the seat w/stand (I stand up), brakes reflectors ever the hande bar grips.

    I do have a normal bike for when I'm not feeling too energetic or brave lol.
