Yesterday... swapped a stem on the big bike, swapped bars on the little bike, tweaked some adjustments, and rode a bit.

Put on new United nash cranks tonight. That was a painful install, the finish look is awesome, pretty excited to see how the 170's will feel as its moving both feet 10mm closer together. The splines need to be tapered more, i almost had a hernia putting those on. Grease does nothing, the clearances are so tight that it just pushes the grease right off the spindle into the spacers. I think im going to have a hard time taking these off down the road.

My bmx has been sitting in the corner with a flat for 3 weeks. My track bike's front campy hub cracked and the back rim cracked. I believe it is time to take the bmx out again.

I got cranks. Chrome indents. All I need to do is buy a frame fork and bars.

Put my fbm/thomson seating on, swapped bars, and removed a spacer under my stem.  Trying to clean up the front end

Put a sticker on then took a sticker off. Thinking about either painting it or adding a fresh coat of clear to it.

Got hooked up with a polished flatware stem and some tanwall frequency g tires. Ride with my friends andy and Art. It was a good day. Real good.

Painted it key lime green. I'm going to pick up a teal cable tomorrow for extra color.

Stripped this down on Sunday and repainted it yesterday. Quick photo while it was paintless.
(Not sure why photobucket flipped the pic, tried to fox it, but it is still upside down on here).

Rode it for about an hour at Ray's and came home and put on Credence bars and some Fit grips.
