Some More Nerdage For You…

I have a “project” bike Im working on, its going to be a Boba Fett theme.  I have never really took it out for a long ride yet so I figured I would today.  I really need to get started on painting this bike.  So far all I have done is a few decals and such.  Im going to paint it and I need to upgrade some parts.  I have it all planned out and I have a good feeling about it.  Going to do it right so its going to take a while but thats alright because my main bike is too fun to ride so this bike being on the back burner is no biggie.  Anyhow, here it is before the “project” really starts…

I dig this bike.  Its nothing special and I have yet to really dial it in (like mess with the seat angle) but thats because its going to all come apart and a lot of new parts will go back on it (plus its going to look like Boba Fett).  So for now that was it.  Its not my Spicer but it’ll do…

The Empire “Bikes” Back!

This is my new jam.  Its finally all together and rides so unbelievably nice.  I took my time with this one and finally have a bike that Im proud of.  So heres the specs…

Spicer Cycles Pursuit Frame 60cm.

Origin8 Cro Mo Lite Road Fork.

Velocity B43’s hand laced with red spokes to Origin8 high flange hubs.

Syntace Stratos Zero bars 38cm wrapped with Cinelli Splash tape (as of now).

Cinelli VAI stem.

Vintage San Marco Regal saddle.

Murphy seat post.

Pake Cranks.

Brev M 46t chainring I painted.

15t cog.

KMC Kool Chain.

Fyxation Session 700/23c Tires

I made the Royal Guard front badge and put the Galactic Empire decals on the fork/rims.  Just another nerdy Star Wars theme I guess.  Hell, my Boba Fett bike is still in the works, should be done some time soon.  Anyways, here it is…

Hope you liked it.  Its really comfortable to ride believe it or not.  It looks aggressive as hell and is just as fast.
