LP, you said it....just a fun bike. I'm not at 80% overall, but close. I'm glad I'm not the only one, too. 3 customs in my garage, and two surlys (KM and PUG). Between the two surlys, they get well over half my hours yearly. Orange is also a 2003 variety, but still kickin' on it's second color. I keep telling myself I owe this one a race.lanpope said:
I think it would have been cheaper if I had repainted mine 10X rather the quest I went on last year to get my size XL boat anchor to become a geared sub 24 pound bike.lanpope said:
Thanks. I have no idea what the actual name/color of the powder is. The guy just had that in the gun when I got there so he stripped my frame and threw it in the batch for $60.mudpie said:lanpope
That red looks like the color I would like to paint my SS, do you have a RL number ?
I'm so glad to hear that frame is still going strong. I did my first solo 12 hour on that bike and I had a blast. I am seriously considering having an EXACT copy of that bike built from a local builder. Glad your loving it and it is holding together for you! For what I paid for that thing...I beat it has more miles/dollar of almost any bike on the board between the two of us.el-cid said:... but so far I love the ChiTi copy of your KM I bought from you last year. I wound up building it up rigid with a Jones bar and carbon fork and it's my favorite bike to ride, period. It got lots more miles than my custom Strong hardtail or my custom Vicious Cycles Groover by far...
Yep. RST 80mm. The canti posts, the low buy in $$, and the reports here made up my mind for me.Guitar Ted said:That a RST M-29 on the front o that classic?
If so, whaddya say about the ride?
I've got one that I've been contemplating mounting to my KM.
