Did this take 700s without

Did this take 700s without modification, or what did you do?

Had to check this out

Hey Velodog,
Andy at Adventure told me about this whip and I had to check it out. Sweet ride!!


Ah good

I am glad to see the bigger tires and rims, that is better. What is that jet pack under the seat?! For this bike, that fuel tank had better be filled with beer, or maybe bourbon.

I would like to recommend putting the tank back on.

I used to ride the serious trails outside of Hell, MI several years back.


Hell MI?

Where the hell is Hell MI.? Ha! Ever do the “One Hell of a ride”, starting in Chelsea? You must have noticed all those little pitchforks with arrows painted on the roads for 40 miles around Hell, right?


Posted twice, and now I can't get rid of it...!

Great Concept !

very unusual, very unique, and way cool !

can't wait

to see the pics of the new setup
sounds sick

ArlieMarshall ,puttin' up my dukes and givin' a damn.


Ah, glad to hear you put bigger tires. The 23's seem to dainty, you would have to carefully watch the quality of your pavement.

Is that a long reach front brake? What is that?

Thanks for the comment Brian. The tires are standard roadbike fare...23mm. I didn't feel the least bit vulnerable with them, but the new wheels have large flange hubs and aero rims, both black, that along with the 30mm tires bring on a look of "balloonish" proportion when veiwed from the side. Oh yeah, they ride WAY better, if slower. I also replaced the fork with a Litespeed full carbon fork. I painted it black and I'm looking for another set of silver Schwinn Dart decals for it. I installed the fork with a Cane Creek S-6 headset, and used a grey Shimano 600 dual pivot front brake. I think I have a couple microns clearance! When the weather turns, I'll be taking pics of it and posting them on this site and my Flicker (Velodog):[email protected]/

As for the old brake, it is a Shimano of undetermined level. Longer reach? Yes, but notice that the shoes are all the way up the slot (minimum reach). I'm antsy to see how the new set-up rides, it dropped the front by over an inch. I had to raise the stem to compensate, but there should be lots of ground clearance left because the BB was so high to begin with, and the stock HT angle is 71.5 degrees. It should handle quicker, but I'm staying out of the crits with it! I don't race. I just added 2 more of these to my collection to make it 4. Too much fun. Greg
