Beauty, nice one dude.

How's the clearance with the 'burns? Have been considering popping a set on mine but have heard mixed reviews. With a higher bar/stem that looks like a whole heap of fun :D

Now that's stem! :P

Looks like there's a bita droop in the chain. Any chance of a link or two being taken out?

whoever had it before the guy that i got it off had filed the dropouts so that u can run 18-14 gearing without a tensioner using a snail cam but i didnt have on so i have used a couple of spacers of an onza zoot frame i have and they seem to have done the trick! the chain is actually ok jus looks funny on the pic! and yea i was looking for an oldskool build and the stem seemed right!

I started the dropout filing craze. I might have owned this frame previously as I had two hex's in the past. Just got a third this week.
