    nice job.

    It was a lot of trial-and-error, and a lot of reading on this forum helped a lot. So, thanks! In the end, it came down to listening to my body; if you feel that you want to scoot back on the saddle, make it so that you can sit further back.

    Default A couple more

    I realized I never put a pic of my Factory lightweight in Corsa Red.

    Also here is my SSR back with fresh paint.

    And finally my wife's 650c with flames and stars

    Great cache of bikes. Is that the SSR that had the corrosion/discoloration problem? If so, what was the final diagnosis?

    Never really got a handle on why is was suffering from surface rust. They redid the passivation process after some aggressive scotch briting and that didnt cure it. After my FLW turned out so nice, I decided I would prefer it painted and that took care of it

    Default Here's my new Planet Cross...

    Finally finished building the Planet X last night and took it on its maiden voyage this morning in Golden Gate Park. All seems good so far although I didn't really let it all hang out just yet. The real test will be next weekend at BASPS #3. A few things on the to do list: I need to cut the steerer tube nub above the stem, take a link out of the chain, and get a sealed cable housing loop for the rear derailleur which stopped working after two laps. For better or for worse we don't have much mud in Nor Cal so it wouldn't usually be an issue but I still feel like I should remedy the situation. Anyway, this one seems like a keeper :)

    Saw this amazing bike trolling the webs. Anyone know who owns it? There can't be too many of these out in the world yet.

    It is Alan's. He has the SSR that people look to for reference of sweet bikes.

    He does his bikes up nicely!

    How could I get one of those saddles? The carbon one with the crown would be killer on my lightweight

    Thanks - I got crafty with a hot glue gun. For me a glue gun is right up there with duct tape and zip ties. I found the medallion thingy on the ground somewhere. If I can find one with satan's face on it for the rear brake I'll be complete :)

    I killed my cyclocross fork 5 years ago practicing bunny hopping, landing too much on my front fork, it bent but not that bad.
