Thanks to Larry!

Dude, This is the set I've been wanting since I first spec'd my bike last year. Just wasn't in my cards until now. (Heh, literally)

CK 36h rear 32h front (20mm), DT Comp 14/15 spokes .
Gratuitous wheel shots in no particular order.

Very nice stuff! King Hubs and headsets are the best and well worth the money indeed. Their hubs are basically set and forget and that buzz is so cool.

Great wheel build too - They will hold up to some abuse.

Hey Zilla,

How about a couple of full bike shots so that we can get the full impact! That bike must look great.

That is one baaaad bling bling wheelset. Gold is so pimpy!
Carefull about getting out and riding that bike, you might get bikejacked by someone who wants to wear that as a necklace. :D
That rear wheel must be stiffer than Bill Clinton at a Miss America contest :D :D

What's all this stuff with our bikes and foilage. First some guy about a Turner sprouting like a tree and then this. Not only is the foilage thing really bizarre, it underscores this whole red poofta club thing. :D I want to see some pics of our bikes in industrial backgrounds. You know, macho stuff, like swords and Vikings and things. Not flowers and trees. :D

Nice stuff, very pretty, eh good looking.

Yes, almost criminally sexy wheels to be sure. But what I want to know is how do you guys explain to your wives about the fact that you own red Turners? I mean, do they "suspect"? Is it strange at family gatherings, or are you open about your choice of color?

I don't mean to pry, I'm just curious.

And weighs about as much as Bill Clinton at a pie-eating contest! Each wheel is +8oz over the XMXLs they replace. Tough boogers! I likes em stiff and hard...wait I better restate that.

Gay flowers? Listen boyz I'll have you know I planted all of those and the 300+ others in my front yard. You think it's Fkin easy living next door to a landscaper??? :eek:

As for the full bike shots here's some. Mind you this is all a rush job between building it, picking up the nina, and pretending to supervise while I take pictures of bike parts. BTW I'm not half done yet. I got plans...PIMPY plans, yeah baby...goin' into ...overgold!

Anyway here's some shots of the bike before I F-it up on tomorrow's ride which I'm totally unprepared for. These were 10 minuets before the mailman delivered the front wheel.

Are those break levers in some funky porn setup? From behind useage or something? :D Nice fricking ride! In the spirt of "I'm gonna get ya sucka" Love the OG :D
The lever was tilted up to bleed the brakes and fill the resivoir. Either that or I was trying out a new kind of bar ends, I forget which.

The Der is running a short chain and a tensioner. I set the length according to the der instructions. Large-large+2 links. Since I dumped my big ring I used the middle ring as the "large" The pic shows it on the middle ring and largest cog. Maybe the route through the tensioner needs more links?
