Just a frame. I have yet to pick it up. I also have parts I have collected over time, bars, stem, and stuff to build a front wheel. The hunt to finding a place to live has been shitty, but I'm moving across town at the end of the week. Hopefully I can pick up a job quick over there. I have a back wheel too, but 25-11 is not on the top of my list, primo pro to a hulahoop. I just want my old bike back.

I will also gladly accept donations to the "get Preston a bike fund". I will gift random goods to anyone who does so.

Also, wood grain Mosh top load stem and 28t fullguard will be rewarded to anyone who finds my bike. Both items are brand new.


I have a pink hoffman repeater pivotal+post, brand new black odsy pcs, cult vans grips(used gum), powerbite arms(no hardware and one has wobblzzz), and possibly some other stuff I'd let go dirt cheap to at least cover shipping. Hit me up if your interested. Super sorry to hear about the bike.

I've tried using all 3 spacers that came with it and it still rubs. I'm not even sure where it rubs. I'm using the WTP headset which is similar to the eclat. I'll just buy a new FSA headset soon and it should work fine. I've had the wtp for like 2 years already anyway.


Did you ever figure this out?

Nope. It works fine until I tighten up the compression cap. Then it starts grinding very little. Just enough to annoy me. I'm going to buy a FSA headset soon so I'll just throw it on then.

I never really put much effort into putting it on even though its awesome. I just flipped the bearings, putting the bottom bearing on top and it doesn't rub anymore. Weird but glad it works now.
Edit: Also, I inspected the headset cap and it seems that the other bearing rubbed on the very bottom of the inner diameter.

Flipped my front tire so my less used hub guard could take the brunt of my abuse for a while, tapped my seat back down and put a sweet 25t ti imperial on to make my ratio feel better due tot he lost leverage with the 165mm cranks. Those ti imperials aren't 15/16 bore, but luckily my friend has some power tools and a lot of patience.

The markit crew was riding my school today. I didn't get to see them in person but I saw their big motorhome leaving and got a few stickers they gave my friend. They also left a ton of nice wax at the ledges  yayyy.. Stoked to see what they did.

I swapped out my old GLHs for a pair of Tioga Powerblocks. Still not sub-20 :( but I have to admit the low rotational weight feels awesome.

With enough lube and brute force, anything is possible.

You can thank Lil Mikey Beeswax for that.

The gussets are awesome.  My wife has been needing my name carved into her for about a decade.

Considered putting on my new tyres and spds, but its too fucking cold in the garage, hands and feet already going numb after a few minutes outside.

It was beautiful out, so I went to the park and sessioned some ledges for a while. Then I finally got around to fixing the massive wobble/hop that's been in my rear wheel since I got it.

it's 40-something outside. I'm spray painting some bars. then I will put the bars on. can't ride because it's also piss raining for the next six months. I'll probably swap the bars back before i even ride the bike....
