Looks like they've shed about half a pound between the Signal and Opsis in the frame alone.

something cool -the current 2010 Opsis came with 14t cog and 28t sprocket but what's awesome is FlatlandFuel has a replacement 12t cog (I got a 24t St. Martin English while I was at it -ends up being same ratio... 2.0)
You'd need to crank down really hard on a big bench vise to hold the driver in place while banging on the 14t cog (I used my ratchet socket extender and a hammer) I was afraid I'd destroy the gearing or chrome but there's not a scratch to be seen.  Overall it's pretty nice with the new set up and was worth the work.

damn dude the opsis is pretty sweet -still super glad I got one -helped get me back into riding.  It's cool 'cuz you can upgrade the hell out of it since it's not a cheap ass walmart bike and... well it's already the basic geometry for flatland right out of the box anyways.  My rear hub finally died so I now join the club of people who say "you'll want to change the hub out" -it served me well for about 6 months but it was time to move on.
Just posting this in hopes of tipping the scales for anyone who's on the fence about learning to ride and the price of bikes.  Just do it... you can switch parts out for more rad stuff as you go -you'll be glad you did.

Well it's been a good year since I bought my Opsis and decided to take it apart last night for some maintenance.I didn't do the hubs or cranks though.Just thought I'd throw it out there for those that didn't/don't know but the forks steerer tube length is 165mm.
Losers always whine about their best,winners go home and f*ck the prom queen!

Noob! Hope you're doing well man -still hoping to meet you at the school sometime!
Flatland fuel has a 12t cog that will fit on your taska coaster -i think it's like ten or fifteen bucks.
Warning: taking the old one off requires a serious shop vice and a hammer.  I put the taska driver in and cranked down real hard on it and used a ratchet bit extension with a hammer to bang the crap out of it and turn the old cog off the driver -you'll have to turn it in the opposite direction you pedal.
Come to think of it -my Taska hub died and I bought a nicer hub off Huffman -I have a 12t cog I could give you.  Maybe we could meet up at the school and I'll bring the tools -but we'll need a big vice.  The one I used is at work so I couldn't borrow that lol
