after four months of gathering parts and putting it off and waiting for bits and pieces to arrive in the mail, i finally got to ride again today. i broke my other bike down to parts to clean and upgrade it when i quit my job, haven't been on a bike in almost five weeks, took this out today and am stoked as hell.

- repainted privitera track frame, some type of steel
- king nothreadset
- helium front wheel from my geared bike
- chub rear hub, black on black on black (yeah!) laced to a velocity aerohead
- flite alpes saddle
- alter stem
- profile bullhorns
- campy veloce single pivot front break (just in case!)

I was riding around for a few hrs today, i can't wait to go out tomorrow except i can't find my campy hat... i feel naked without it... the white didn't even get that dirty in the wet slushy pavement.
hmm, picture didn't upload. let's try again...wooden legs

with they chub hub, edco competition cranks, and bebop pedals. bebops rule so far, never had a pedal with that much float, it's sweet. chub hub is a bit of a i-worked-hard-this-week-and-i-deserve-it purchases, who knows if it's better than a normal sized hub? do i care? not really.

no, i ebayed it from a guy in miami, english wasn't his first language so he may have lived in south america and bought it there. do you know anything about the manufacturer or their history? i'm really liking the frame feel and geometry, it's uber solid.
