Sweet looking bike man, definitely a good find.

Having cash is a cool feeling. Here's a (bad) picture of $5k I traded for a car. :D
Yup, those are all Franklins. :p

they are azonic fusion pedals, and the front chain ring is 36 tooth, not big at all imo...

yeah this bike is sick.. haha
haha my bad it looked big in my opinion maybe its just the bashing guard or the bike itself, get some action pics up

Nice bike, very well spec'ed out. Are those Azonic magnesium pedals? if yes get rid of them, the bearings are non sealed, i had some. I realy like that frame.
Those look like the Fusion pedals. Why should he get rid of them because they're nonsealed? I have two pairs and have had excellent results with them. And I mean, they're like $30. :p Not attacking you, just curious on why you think he should get rid of them.

No attack here we all like what we like for our reasons. I bought them for there - weight & of course price. After the 2nd year "i know $30.00 in 2 yrs?"
they were grinding due to lack of grease. I took them apart regreased, adjusted the bearing nut & was better. I sold the bike the new owner still has the pedals, they still are rough rolling & it's been 4 1/2 years. Guess you can say im finikey, i like things to roll smooth. I now run the Thompson flats & think the Azonic A frame are almost as good.

Hm. I've had one set for well over a year and haven't had issues so far. I'll definitely be on the lookout for that though. :)
