I just can't get my shit together for this shovel build. Frame needs more work than it may be worth in the end. I won't get into the details, but right now, I'm not 100% stoked on it. Things could change with some work, but not right now.
so.........i'm just going to think happy thoughts for a little bit while I pause and reflect on it all. Here are some pictures of bikes that I think are done well and the owners have already figured out what frame they are using. (because they are done building the bikes)
While none of them are the direction I want to go with my bike, they are all just really nicely done.
