Pimped my muni! (with pics)

Lets face it, we all have a little Tyler Cox in us telling us to make threads showing off all our new gear and asking questions and such.

I've finnaly accquired all my parts to complete my muni... for now.

I bought:
Magura Evolution QR Brake mounts.
Magura HS22 Brake
GB4 Brake booster
Profile spacer UFO's(not pictured)
Delta Brake lever extender(not installed)
RPM 22.2 Rail-type seatpost
Bedford KH Rail Adapter w/brake mount.

The last package came today, via UPS, all the way from the east coast.


Voila, heres the new muni.


I'd like to thank all the people who made this possible.
pdc
Greg Barnes
Johnathan the UPS guy
Debbie the Mail ladie
and most of all Darren Bedford, who has put-together and supplid most of the parts on this sick ride.

The seat had a perfect tilt now, and all presssure is applied to my plump buttocks. The brake fits perfectly in place. And I'm thinking of having "Muni Militia" cut into the brake booster.

I have a few more pics in my gallery Bedford Muni Gallery

All I have to do now is to slap on my brake lever extender. I can't wait to hit the trail.

Just Braggin',
Eric P.

Very nice. Having brake levers and extenders and wires and things all over always makes a muni look pimpier.

I don't like them. They get in the way of the frames I use. I go with the Profile spacers that look like regular washers. I order extras of the washers so I don't have to use the UFO spacers.

The cost altogether is looking around $1000, however I've gotten some sweet deals on everything I've bought, so the actual retail value is... $1200, on the price is right.

My dad gets packages almost evry day via UPS or Fed Ex or USPS, so I know all of our mailmen.

Profile spacer ufo's arehiy little peices of metal that go between the crankarms and the frame, and attatch around the hub. If you look at the cranks where they attatch you'll see those little browninsh blackish rings around the hub, thats where they go. They look like little UFO's when you put the two of them together. I dont really need them, but I want to pimp this muni to the full extent.

Jagur, you tryin to put together another muni? When is is for sale?

Is the booster necessary? I know with the one point mounts they are. I didn't think the 2 point mounting needed a booster.
