  5. Straight bars and straps

Current Stage Info:

Decided to ditch the toe clips for straps, which was the right choice. I feel like I have much more control now. The new handlebars are awesome, and give a much more responsive feel for a daily commuter. And of course, got rid of the brake.

How is the flite? I have had two different used ones and they both were very uncomfortable after ten miles in the saddle. Maybe since they were broken in already but I am asking because maybe a new one would be better. Its such a good looking saddle so i want to give it another chance.

Thanks! I bought the frame and it was only primed. It had no paint on it. I decided that a metallic blue would look good, and I am very happy with how it turned out. Your bk looks sick!

So fresh and so clean. Get out and ride that thing! Best/cheapest wheelset you could ever have. Mine have taken a beating, and still run as true as ever.
