My first build, lots of random parts. Hit the road 4/17/2007.
Switched to a road bar with Tektro V-brake levers 1/17/2010.
Broke 12000 miles 3/19/2010, 15000mi 10/27/10.

At 19325 miles in 2/2012, decided to part out due to frame being smaller than my other bikes and being less comfortable. It had a good run. If you live in the South Bay and want the frame/fork/headset (and maybe seatpost), let me know.

I have two of these frames. My son rides a blue one like yours and I ride a red one. Ours are a little older (they don't have the disc tabs) and mine is set-up as a mountain bike.

They are great frames. Yours is the only one I've seen other than mine.

I've only seen one other,

I've only seen one other, and that was on BikeForums. It's nice to know that they're out there. The thing's a tank. I have some 26x1.25's waiting to go on... we'll see how it rides on narrower rubber.

It's kind of sad that I

It's kind of sad that I wanted something bulletproof... and I had to build it myself.
