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.

one world...
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.

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.
