Very nice!

What are all those wierd things on the crankset and rear wheel? :D :D :D
I had a bunch of extra spiky metal circles, so I figured I'd attach them to my bike.

Fear not, thanks to the mullet setup and my eccentric ENO hub, I can return to the simple life at any time.

Maiden off-road ride this afternoon!

Its tomorrow! As promised in my 1st post, I went riding... and it was good. Did a short ride on my local trails (betty dearing / tree people in L.A.).
I haven't ridden on a hardtail in quite a while. My last bike was a Blur, and I loved it, but my new bike is soooo cool.
I'm glad God made Nate and I the same size so I'm able to reap the rewards of his custom built bike.
Granted it has only been one ride, but the bike thusfar fits me like a freakin' glove.
I need to get some o' them cable splitter dealies so's I can travel with my new ride. I'm going to Chicago later this summer, and am planning to bring this bike with my eccentric eno.
I'd like to get some more pics up because, imho this bike looks real good.
