Bike Check

I built this bike up this past fall when I discovered that my old ghetto GT SS had a cracked frame. It's primarily used as a DJ/urban/skatepark bike, but it's also just a general use beat around SS. All in all, I love it and am very happy with the build. It's not completely finished because I still need to get a new disk front wheel so I can install a proper front brake....but, who am I kidding...no bike is ever done. Big thanks to Marc for helping me choose the frame since I didn't know what to look for in this kind of bike and to Bike World for building me a sweet and bombproof rear wheel. Now...the nitty gritty..

Stem: Sette Stumpy with hollow star nut
Rear Hub: Surly New Disk

Pedals: Welgo

Seatpost: Bargain bin
Seatpost Collar: Green Salsa Rim lock (gotta have some flair)

Rear Brake: Nashbar disk (160mm)
Front Brake: Avid rim....jimmy rigged
Tires: Retired Specialized roll X's
