i bet that bike can outrun a single speed or fixie...lol   for real though sweet ride, i actually traded in my animal asm tires for some fatter tires cuz i found they were a lil too fast for my riding style and they were messing me up.

Nice dubs, I was planning on running the same Primo 20x1.35 tire on just the back possibly w/ a vintage 80's Araya 7X 1.5" chrome rim.  Way sick ride btw.

Damn, that thing looks light as hell. If you are carving pretty hard do the skinny tires slip out due to lack of surface area?

Thanks guys
I got these tires through a friend, but there's a shop here in SF that sell these for $10 a tire. Those a pretty cheap on the internet as well, just google. You would need some skinny tubes tho.

I'll give these tires a proper test drive on Friday, so I'll let you know how these tires hold up. Clocktower FTMFW!

A bike thats lighter than mine. I never thought I'd see the day. That sprocket looks misaligned though, thats why your teeth are going to wear down to a knifes edge.

yeah the sprocket alignment is not perfect, but it's about to change when I get that spline sprocket.
The bike weights somewhere around 19 lbs, I guess, I didn't really weight it that accurately.
