    sweet ride man, I bet she's smoooooth. at first glance it totally reminds me of a beach cruiser. Then I look at the build and realize it's a real bike.

    Brought my '93 Bontrager back to life this past Winter. Rides great! Was a lot of fun building it up myself. Only thing I didn't do myself was build up the wheels...

    Nice. I have a very similar set up. Mine is white and has a Rock Shox Psylo. I love it. I had a complete SS laying around after I scavanged the derailurs off it for an AM project and then figured might as well build it into a SS. Once I had it built I fell in love with it and now I hardly ride the AM bike.

    Thanks. My first ever green bike. I haven't spent nearly as much time on it as I'd like, but it's been a lot of fun.

    I realize this post of your BMC CX is about a year old, but I am looking to do a similar set up (same frame), I'm hoping to get some insight on how you built it, as far as wheels,hubs, gearing, ect.
    Anything info would be awesome :thumb:

    After 4 seasons on a 5.5" travel geared mtb I've kicked the habit. I was looking for a 26" trail bike that I could treat like a bmx if the opportunity pops up. I went to Oscar and he did good.
