hehe Yep. The super fast engagement is nice too. A couple more mod ideas. They've been discussed way too much on this forum already, but I figured it still won't hurt.

I like a short stem (50mm) and wide bars (> 700mm) for AM riding, and the adjustable seat post craze is actually valid. I bought two KS posts this past month, and they really ARE one of the best mods you can make to your bike :)

Yeah the engagement is awesome! But eventhough it is a XL frame I really like the longer stem, I've got some long ass arms :lol and the bars are more narrow than the ones on my past bikes but I am just going to get used to them and if I think I could go smaller I will :)

But I will definately look into the KS! Thanks for the tip!

Updates! And disclaimer....The pedals are on there because I commute to campus on this bike everyday and rocking clips and shoes isnt very practical...I need new flats...

I looked at that rear drivetrain pic and realized it needed to be cleaned

Updates
Blackspire Bashguard
Mowa stem caps (just a little bling ;) )
a solid clean!

I would never commute that to school, people cut right through u locks for $hitty bikes, what do you think they will do to yours? I'd buy a $200 bike for the commute to school. But the bike looks sick.

haha I actually had a bike stolen one day but not this one!!

I use a steel U-lock and a kevlar cord just on the frame and I take the front wheel off and carry it in with me to class and it stays in my apartment 100% of the time during the night time hours and when I am not riding it to class
