    I thought so from the one pic but double checking, I wonder how it will hold up long term? You took a mediocre bike and made such a sweet commuter/cruiser I really like it!
    Ya thats a mistake I made on my part, not enough coats of paint on the rear wheel, not accounting for the brake pad wear.

    Its definitely an awesome cruiser. The tires are a bit bigger, so its actually really quiet.

    Dude, that's pretty impressive! How's the new cabinet? I didn't realize it was big enough to fit a BMX frame inside!

    Thanks man! The cabinet is great, apparently it can fit a car door. We had to modify it a bit to make it fit better in the garage, turned out awesome.

    That’s awesome, nice work!

    I miss flatland BMX. I built a really nice bike about 4 years ago with a freecoaster and a bunch of other really good parts. A few weeks after completion, some crackheads used a 40ft extension ladder to go up on my balcony of my apartment on the second floor and stole it.

    I re-wrapped the leather on the seat. Not bad for my first try.

    One last thing to add on the other bike. Also, devils in the details. Cinema pedals with gold nuts on the Schwinn.
