    I know the focus for these is dirt, but have any of y'all used a gyro on a feedback? The frame seems perfect in almost every way except for the lack of gyro tabs.

    Can someone tell me where I can get a BB spacer for my liquid? I tried using the bearings and spacer from my 20" Fit bmx frame but the spacer is too long and the bearings are sticking out about the thickness of a quarter on each side. Thanks

    grind down the spacer...

    but fwiw, maybe you have an odd sized spacer to begin with? i've used various setups on four different frames without any issues...

    I figured I was in the extreme minority with this one. I pretty determined to have a gyro/rear brake on my next bike, though.

    Here's my Liquid. 22" tt. Most parts are from a complete WTP Avenger per cmc's recommendation. I did change bars and stem though. Bars are T1 Ruben's and stem is a Profile Push.

    That's a clean looking ride right there Ratfink. I think this summer I might have to figure out how to trade up from my DK into a Liquid. They just look like so much fun to ride. :D

    Thanks guys. Mine is certainly not the nicest build out there (faze, yours is just ridiculous, and somewhat the inspiration for mine with the black and plum pearl) I just love these Liquids, so I had to share!

    thanks for the props, you guys have sick looking rides as well! Priorities are a must, and I know how you feel, took me a long time to put mine together but it was definitely worth it. When I seen Jeremy's bike on the liquid site last spring I was hooked.

    I noticed the site is out of frames, are there plans to get more?

    Just thought I would share that your shots are getting around. Maybe you already know, or maybe you don't. Either way, check it out. :) http://cruiserrevolution.com/

    I've been away from this thread for awhile...

    PNJ - That shot of you is SICK!!!! Man, those trails look like so much fun.

    Nightsblood - That build is pretty amazing. I love the chrome with the blue. Well done, sir!

    update! coming up on 5 years since building this bike and i still get envious and curious people wanting to ride it. since i built it ive only put in a new bb, new front tire, new pedals, and chicago'd the bars a bit... bb was a cheapie; i got a fat paycheck for new pedals , wanted a faster/lighter tire than dan's offered, and i finally settled on a good bar angle. at 6'7" no bike has ever fit me, except this one. best bmx ill ever have. gonna have to put it in my safe or closet. cant afford to have this one disappear as stolen or lost or who knows what

    Picked this frame up last month and it could be one of the last V2 out of the warehouse. Finished the build recently and really looking forward to it!
