    And yes, I do know those arnt echo cranks, and yes, i do know that it doesnt have a bash ring. The guy I ordered from sent me pics of the bike with his mod cranks and bb on it. I ordered a bb and bash from tim. And im going to get a little bmx racing seat, and maybe custom paint it :)

    Peace out side!

    great! when I took it down to the shop to get the crank/bb/bash ring installed (dont have the tools at home), they hooked it all up, rode it about 40 feet and guess what!! heard some weird noise, stopped riding and the hub broke!! yeah, right where the cassette goes, one of the cassette rings was TWISTED off, looked nice, yeah so now I need a new rear wheel, im prolly just going to strip it down, send the hub and spokes/ nipples back, and then hook up this shimano deore hub, and maybe keep this wheel as a spare then build up some crazy ass Dx-32 w/ Chris King hub, hehehehe....

    just got back from riding, it feels great! I dont think the front brake is broken in quite yet, I will do that later when its not so hot out (night ridin here I come!!) I only need to make some small adjustments, move shifter, brake in brake, umm wire the grips, and some other crap lol..

    im going to email the guy i bought from, and see what he thinks, I think Ill end up taking off the hub and sending him the spokes and the hub, then order a king or a stealth hub, something nice..and then get something to lock up my front freewheel so I can use my same cranks. Well im going to fontana tomorrow so wish me luck!! (pfft in beginners...)
