this is my commuter/beater. the thing's got MILEAGE on it. most of the decals are acetoned off. the wheels were originally built by marcus at yojimbo's. after being nailed by the host of some pinko-commie tennant's-rights radio show i listen to, however, i had to rebuild the front myself. save for the fork, every original pista component is GONE. i love this bike--except for its mushy BB/chainstay.

this bike was run over by a truck last week while it was locked up. i loved this silly little thing.

cool funky colors. most people play it safe with chrome.

r.i.p. it`s a shame this bike got destroyed. good luck with your other bikes. this was a great bike. total respect. ride n.y.c. peace..

VD, your chain looks

VD, your chain looks slack???


shishi! yeah. the whole drivetrain is a disaster at the moment. i'm gonna overhaul it tonight after i get back from picking up that crazy panasonic from sasha!


I want your job, your beater is worth more than a grand!


How do you like the feel of that crank and ring setup? I am about to get the exact same thing.

they're great.

i used to have a zen on the bike. i swapped it out for the FSA and this one rides just as well--if not better. i love the sugino 75 cranks as well. i hated the sugino RDs that came with the bike. the chainline was always slightly fucked up with them and it drove me nuts.
