My Fat Chance Ti frame was 2300 bucks. In 1999. It will be ridden long after I'm gone...

A basic down tube made of steel can be had for about $25, nothing fancy.....
A basic Ti Down tube of grade 9 is $75, not only is it not fancy, it is not even close to high quality.....
Both tubes 31.8 diameter, ti is straight guage, steel is .8/.5/.8 butted.

Just an idea of the difference. It is very hard to compare though......

This does not take into consideration the differences in handling and such at all.

that's what has me so excited about going back to work with a decent income. I can start saving for my Anderson Four Seasons. If the summer season is good I could have it by September. WOOT!!!

One of the locals has a Columbine Ultra. It actually has diamonds and other jewels in the lug work. Another local cut all the stones. This photo is off their site, but, you get the general idea.

Well, I got it rolling today. Some parts still need to get swapped out for better ones. But, at least I can go kill myself on it now...

My GF and I were talking about the days we rode/raced BMX and we almost always stood on the pedals. These days we can't imagine riding like that, when we see the Danny MacAskills of the world. I need to be 120lbs again.

Nice. I have the front brake lever on the right side on all my bicycles - a muscle memory thing, I guess.

I'm 6'6"...285 lbs...but, I suck and don't care what other people think. I rode the trials rig today ...good times.

I think it's a smart move. I set up ALL my son's bicycles that way. I just don't understand how someone that rides bicycles and motorcycles, would do it anyother way.

I started a new 18" BMX Park bicycle build today, for my 7 year old BMX racer. He's never owned/rode a steel frame bicycle. All of his bicycles have been, purpose build BMX race bikes.

More parts, will be in next week.

I've ridden bicycles since I was 8 and motorcycles since I was 12. Never confused the brakes on either one. YMMV.
