Oh, the second picture. I sold the bike and then bought it back from the guy I sold it to several months after.

The second picture is how he had it built up. Uploaded it because I found it humorous.

Now that I give it a second thought, I'll be removing that picture.

From taking a look at your bikes, I'm assuming that you're being sarcastic.

You're right, this bike is extremely flashy and very over done. It says "look at me, I'm so cool" rather than, "I don't care what I'm riding, as long as I go fast on it, I find no complications."

As of about 1 year ago, I have indicated that I no longer own this bike, so all I can say is that a lot can change in a year and a lot has changed.

I work at a professional Triathlon, road, and mountain cycling shop as a professional mechanic and I've learned a thing or two and have matured my views on cycling.

I was a kid when I ran this bike like this, I don't run it like this anymore because I grew up.

Haha yeah I was just being a troll, my first bike was pretty ridiculous too (in a different kind of way) I'm glad that you made the transition and actually are passionate about cycling. Many people get burnt out on how much money they spend on bikes like this and stop cycling all together!

Hahaha, dude... I've easily spent more than 10000 dollars just on these stupid single speeds! I don't even want to start on geared bikes!!

And yea dude, definitely turned into a life style for me rather than a hobby. You should just look at my internet history... You'd lol.

What kind of riding do you do? Race road I'm assuming?

jdawg4334 says:

Hahaha, thanks! I didn't think that it looked too bad either. :]

I'm getting a Low pursuit. That will be my velodrome bike at least for ADT Center (olympic level: 45 degree banking).

I can ride this bike on any other velodrome with less than 22 degree banking.

Ohhh okay... Did you have to take of the cog to put on the disc?

hey did you cut a slit on the side of the disc?

jdawg4334 says:

Yes. It was a little pizza slice so that the disc would 'cone' when I zip tied it to the wheel.
