My sister sends a Styrofoam cooler full of east coast goods during the holidays. Packed with dry ice, that stuff is a blast!

Oh cool. And one is at my local REI. I do love their packs and the Texas heat will work well with their ventilation designs. Thanks.

I use this one http://www.rei.com/product/889173/osprey-syncro-10-hydration-pack-100-fl-oz-2014-closeout
It's got this air speed mesh that keeps the pack separated from your back and you get a nice air flow in between. Sweaty drenched backs suck and it works great

Wife asked what I needed for the bike... Fathers day is around the corner. Suggestions in the under 200 catagory? I have good pedals, cranks, bars, stem, seat, brakes etc... Was leaning more towards 5.10s but not sure if the size 14's will fit my hobbit feet. What is the must have part, peice of gear etc that I should consider?

your bikes dialed ask for a free weekend of riding Smile ... or a whole unquestioned day...thats what i ask for Wink

I get stevens this sunday... if all goes to plan. I do need a new Chef Knife or a soundbar for the TV but riding shit always gets put on the back burner... I need to diversify the kit. And when she asks me specifically what I want for the bike... I get going!

ProCore?

Thanks guys. Pretty stoked I managed to build this thing up, and glad I finished it off with the colour details. I did think about yellow on the rims instead of dark grey (it's transparent vinyl over the white logos) but thought that might be too much. What do you think?

It has the perfect amount of yellow...i wouldn't add any to the wheels. Curious about the transparent over your wheels? I have a set of spank subrosa30 on hopes that i would love to knock the white down a little

Looks sick! Sweet bike!


Styrofoam collar with dry ice is the way to go. My aunt sends us frozen tommalies, from Texas to the east coast, and they're still frozen when they get here.

Search for "transparent adhesive vinyl", "headlight tint" or "headlight tinting" on eBay (without quote marks). I got the yellow from eBay.com (seller name paperstreetplastics) and the grey from eBay.co.uk (seller name vtcust0ms).

The cranks are the yellow vinyl - it coloured the black parts a little too so I cut around the letters with a scalpel blade then put a clear crank skin over the top. For the wheels I cut curved shapes from the vinyl sheet first then applied them with slightly soapy water then squeegeed it out. Worked out pretty nicely!

Spending this much time and effort building up a nice bike it's nice to do these finishing touches.
