It felt good when I did it because I was still faster than all of my buddies hills or flats. I met some people that truly are fast and this ratio couldn't hold it's ground.

I prefer in the 51:17 realm.

Why would you want this? It has been appraised at worthless / unsalvageable short of taking it to a custom frame builder and having him basically dissemble the whole frame and re brake the whole thing for a couple thousand bucks. Now that I think about it, I don't think that I'd ever do that for a frame that way too small for me.

Damn man, that really sucks. Glad your ok though dude and to hear from you. I almost came close riding home tonight during my cool down. Damn BMW barley stopped at the light and was about 3 inches form hitting me. Dude had to skid stop and I hauled ass to get out of the way the split second. What frame you plan on riding? Are you back to your old one or something new?

damn dude, some drivers dude, simply pathetic. glad that you werent hit though.

and im still a little banged up so im not really worrying about my bike yet and hopefully, well get the money from the gal that hit me before in done healing.

and nah, like i said, im still hurt, so im not using my old bike, my friend currently has it actually.

and im really looking into a planet x track frame, a low pursuit frame, or an njs frame, probably samson or kalavinka, but idk yet, its just annoying because i had to spend all of my time getting all the different parts for this bike, hahaha, and i dont really wanna get a frame that would make me have to get all new parts again. hahaa. but idk.

got any suggestions man, i really honestly dont know what i want.

cannondale track, definitely, over everything else, but those are so rare, you know?

such a bummer, i'm sure you'll build up something super proper and to look on the bright side you're okay and you have a snazzy new wall ornament.
