    Man, I was going to give you mine. Oh well, I guess I'll keep it and we can be twinsies.

    Damn, should've held out a little longer...

    And not quite twinsies, it'll be a lot closer to the Zukas than your RL

    Salsa replacement? Did you ask Paul for plasti-dip or real paint?

    Yeah, it'll be a Salsa replacement, which will in turn be flat-barred and relegated to commuter duty.

    Plan is 650b, aluminum, probably a steel fork (remains to be seen whether I'll have Paul build it or go Hunter/Iglehart), clearance for 48s with fenders and slightly larger knobbies, carry over my existing Sram 1x group, and the loudest bassboat sparkle powdercoat I can find (my current thought is seafoam green base with purple metal flakes).

    Saw this on the 'gram. Not gonna lie, I want it, bad and am already trying to figure out a timeline that will make it feasible in the next year or two. Would look great with the new White Ind. headset and the purple ano. Hollowgram cranks that came with the Cannondale Slate.

    Oh nice, that's my regular stomping ground too. I work and live down by the Lake. If you see the bike above yours in this thread out there be sure to say hello.
