36h Paul front disc hub/velocity b43/Jinxy shield on the front with Avid Lever/BB7/Clean Sweep Disc brake.
Wheel Built by Garth at Beef City
Disc Tab/brake installed by Garth as well. Thanks Bro!
RiBMo 700x28c tires
MKE Nickle ends (they're pimp)
Stemie stem pad
Plans to upgrade back wheel (h+son EERO or another b43)

Pros:
Disc brake stops on time every time.
Turns extremely tight
Wheelies!
Durable frame/fork
Wheel Cover fits flush on the edge of the b43, from certain angles it looks like a disc cover... thanks Jinxy!

Cons:
A bit heavy (The MKE Paint job and 3 layers of paint is dumb, how many times do you need to paint something black?)
U brakes don't do anything, why bother?
Handlebars are still 1-2 inches too long, knee slams into the handlebars sometimes....
Back wheel is so out of true...

All in All, a fun bike. I appreciate the steel frame especially when I smash my bike into the ground or hear that nice ping sound when a ball pops off the frame. The turn radius is great and the front end is still a bit heavy (stem/handlebar replacement likely).

Mad props to Garth for making the disc brake happen.

Looks good!

Con:
Hoser Mobile!!!!

Niiiice! Gimme that stemie! You know so connections with my bike will be pleasant experiences...

mash on or get mashed up.

I like the noodle lol that's a really good idea

what size rotor do you run? i got a disc mount from
paragon but because the fork is straight and the offset
ends I have wound up using 203 rotors. I like the placement
of your caliper.

fuck ur face

Did you custom make that tab If so could you tell me the dimensions?

Thanks
