Thanks for the offer man! But all being well I should have a majesty frame by Tomorow, then it's just a matter of finding the time to build it, Unfortunatly white is the only color left :(
just my 2c worth but White with black parts = OffGuts !! :clap2: hahaha

yeah, its all about the stealthy look :). paint stripper and clear coat can solve that issue though...

woo getting a fork on monday then hopefully i can get the rest of the parts for my leaf build on thursday :) just to confirm; bmx hubs work on the identiti rebate fork, right?

if so that means fly bikes female front hub laced to a mavic en521 with straight guage spokes. and all black, of course.

WTF does off guts mean? Is it good or bad? My guess is bad, white will look hideous! But who cares.

Good stuff rob, get it together thursday night, come to freedom on Friday, and don't even talk to me untill you hit the middle line, or die trying. K
 
LOL. actually friday works well as my class finished in enmore at 1... i guess i should put a brake on the bmx and get on down there sometime soon.

and ill be ordering on thursday, wont be complete for a while as the shop needs to get the parts in, build the wheel, blah blah blah itll take a while.

Your leaf is also clear coat rob? Might not be riding Friday caus I can't get my profile cranks out :(
 
yeah i snapped the axle in my rear hub so im out too (is it just me, or am i an absolute hack???). just as i think im going to finish the mtb build this happens. so now im getting a new rear hub for the bmx and a drivetrain for the mtb, as i dont want another axle to snap on me after another month of riding.

and if you are willing to do so, try cutting through the spindle spacers and spindle, then drilling the end of the crank bolt until theres no thread left in the spindle or bolt, use ye olde hammer to ge the arms off, then get a new spindle. its cheaper than a new crankset thats for sure.

yeah mines matte clear with a bit of rust. going with pretty much all black components and a bit of blue hardware. when this frame gets too rusty im probably going for a custom dobermann (hopefully something like the pinscher just with a spanish bb and bmx hub spacing)

i think once you get one custom frame, you dont want to go back to off the shelf frames haha. its too addicting. at least i get the bike exactly how i want it though, which is always sick. and now that i know a lot more about custom frames (primarily from my old one snapping) i think this one will be pretty awesome.

'SingleSpeed' this is sic !!

Where do u get your frames made mann .?
 
yeah i think ill tweak the geo a bit though. lower bottom bracket height for sure.

my custom frame was a descendence. this will be a dobermann... maybe. still not 100% sure but i hope i can get one.

and the mtb has a slim chance of getting done next week. my cranks get in midway through the week, i got a proper 28t sprocket, 13t rear sprocket and kmc 710sl chain today, so i only need a front wheel now :)
