    Yeah, I think it looks really good now, looks better in person than in the picture.

    But I did like the green, I rode around in the drama classroom in the dark with blacklight on and it was insanely cool looking.

    EDIT: I am getting my bike cranks powder coated, so after that if I don't get the frame and Unicycle cranks throw in with it, then I'll clear coat it.

        Just wondering, what'd you do to get less clearance?

              For 2mm, you must have alot of spare time.

                        Yeah, after I rawed it, I was thinking... When I post this people are going to compare it to "The Ti"....

                        Surface rust doesn't form as quick as some people make it out to be though, so I have quite a while before I decide to get it powdered black.

                        The cranks on my bike have been raw metal for close to a year now, and I have ridden in the rain at least 10 times since they have been rawed.. well actually I sanded all the rust off of them with a dremel, the person I bought them from left his bike in the rain for a year and it pretty much is covered in rust.

                        Well now, you have a black post clamp and a seat cover with more red, as well as a silver hub. What about Profile cranks? Aren't they chromed? Or are they polished really well to get that Chrome look that I somehow doubt you can get CrMo to get.

                        I do respect The Ti though, I just don't like the Lollipop bearings.

                        Actually, it took under 30 minutes, including taking a break from using the hacksaw to get a drink.

                        I also ground off the stupid useless Magura mounts.

                        Why would you make a negative comment like that? You realize we all ride Unicycles... we must all have a lot of spare time.

                            For an indefinite amount of time I've decided to focus on my trials riding so I've made the appropriate changes to my uni.

                              I think he thinks that you only took off 2cm of the frame. The 2007 had a lot of clearence so you had to take a lot more than off.

                              It looks really nice. =p

                                I still have the hunks of steel I sawed off.

                                They're ridiculously thick...

                                I believe I took off around 1 1/4", I don't remember exactly though because the metal is in my garage, and I don't feel like going in there just to measure it.
