    Nice bike, have yet to ride a Megamo yet, wonder how they feel. Im sure theyre not new to anyone else, but Ive never seen riser bars by Monty before, pretty stiff?

    Oh, and nice cranks! :p

    Nice Bike OICDN. Much better than those other bikes you were looking at. How much was it to build?

    It cost me around $1200 to build after everything was said and done. 2-day shipping of the bike, with overnight shipping of some parts, brake bleeding, labor to redish rear rim, buying all those damn un-needed rotors and a Julie that is now not getting used....LOL, that DOESN'T count the fact I bought two cranks, boosters, 4-bolt hardware.

    The fact that Tim gave me a free DX32 rear wheel, booster, 4-bolt hardware and Louise brake helped me actually get it on the road and with a cheaper price...

    So I think I did good......been riding it ALOT actually. My parents and sister wonder how the hell I can have fun on it and never leave my driveway.... :bigthumb: Ahh...learning pivoting is great.....

    looks nice man.

    the bars, rotate them forward more. like the normal flat bars, these are pretty much meant to be used with the sweep close to vertical not horizontal. it will put less strain on your wrists when youre on the back wheel, and it will make the bike easeir to control and move around. play around with the angle. vertical is better.

    Actually it's not...LOL, I thought the same thing cause of the way the spokes move/point, but the Grimeca arrow says it rolls that way.....odd.....

    Yeah, wrists are kinda :ugh: :greddy: and I'm trying find a sweetspot on them, cause I DID have them almost vertical, but it seemed really, awkward....maybe it's just something I need to get used to cause the whole bike felt awkward when I hopped on it.

    I'm curious about something though...you think I should get a riser stem? I mean, the front lifts pretty easy, but I'm curious as to how it'd feel with a riser.....I'de lean more foreward, so I dunno how it'd affect the whole picture of things....
