Looks tight! Look's like a oversized bmx too me. How much does that weigh, also how do you like the pedals? One last question how much have you put into it.

Air up your tires!

Looks sweet, but make sure you keep a good PSI in your tires on those Halos. I run the same wheels on my park bike with Holy Rollers and the tires have a tendency to roll off the rim if I don't keep them aired up.

I've heard this is very common with the Halos.

It should be around 25 pounds, lost track of weight, will have to weight it complete and check it out. 2000+usd? Don't know and I'm not willing to to the math...Lot's of money spent of a year. I spent more than I should have, that's for sure! Sold the other bike I had so I guess that's not too bad. Pedals are great, used them before on other builds, grippy wide and light.

Yeah, it's "My Ultimate Build" really. Just to get some attention to my post.

I'm running those at max PSI (65). Thanks for the heads-up!

Some more pics! Thanks for your comments.

Thats beautiful dude. Do you think a rigid fork would work on the bike? Stupid question I know, but I just want your oppinion. Thanks.

They do it as a frame anyway so as long as the fork length is right then no probs

Hate to break it to you, but its not going to be 25lbs when its said and done, especially with the 06 frame. Here is a pic of my bike w/ the weight just so you can get an idea.
