Some really old 175mm's

some specialized seat

MKS sylvan metal cages

Its small - 39 - 13

This bike is dangerous. The chain comes off at weird times, the cranks are really long, and my chain has a little play in it because of how small the rear cog is. But its basically awesome and all those things really only add to the fun

atleast you will look good when you go flyin off the road :D


your bike is super sweet, it sounds like your bottom bracket is to long, so you cant get a straight chain line. meaning your front chain ring is too far out to line up properly with your rear cog, so it doesn't matter how tight your chain is. it will keep coming off till you get that chain line straight. if the crank and bottom bracket are from a geared road bike its definitely going to give you a different chain line than your rear hub till you get a shorter bottom bracket. i hope this helps, a squirrely chain is really dangerous with no brakes.

This is a cool

This is a cool steamroller....but I would most certainly check into those problems. Safe than sorry has been my experience.

well I originally it would

well I originally it would come off the outside when I was just pedaling (unaligned chain problem) so I took the chain-ring and put it on the other side of the crank holder bits and that stopped it for a while. The damn thing still comes off from being too lose even with two chain tensioners (not in photo)

its a curse I tell you
