    Hey everyone, my brother just grabbed himself a new ride tonight so I thought I would post it up.

    Stock transition build, but we swapped out the TBC seat for the Deity one and the Hayes 9 for a Juicy 5.
    The new Deity bar and stem will be going on as soon as it comes into the shop.

    26s, 32hole.

    Thanks for the comments on it. I like the black/white color scheme with the red hubs.

    What would you guys think of white for the bar and stem, or black. Kinda of a fashion question but.

    awesome bike, although it looks a bit like a ku klux klan meeting...
    Would've looked hot-rod with some of those red TBC revo's and some whitewalls too, haha!

    What are your opinions on the ride vs. your P-chro? Just curious to hear.


    Those new deity seats are a huge step up from their old sketchers looking shoe seats....

    Satori, It feels ages lighter at 30.33 lbs, only 2 pounds lighter then the cro. but it's a lot different. The geometry is around the same so it felt good and close in that aspect. The front end is a big higher so it took a bit to get used to, but that'll change when the lower stack Deity stem is added and the steerior tube is cut a bit.

    It rides really good and it's very easy to get used to, my brother actually landed a 360-fakie on the mini first try, a trick that took me 50 or so tries to get.

    Yeah, he does rock the tight pants.
    You wear them lower, g-unit style, so there's plenty of room.

    My calves wouldn't fit in those pants.

    I just can't see how girl pants can be comfortable.

    OK back on topic. Nice ride.
