I can't remember his name or how much he actually spent but it was like last year or two years ago, someone came around posting a state bike he built with too nice of parts for a state. He pretty much got laughed at and never resurfaced.

Pretty nice build. The bar and saddle angles look a little goofy, IMO. Nice cat too.

Well I don't have too much room to point fingers and laugh because I'm about to put a crank set, chain ring and bottom bracket onto a Kilo WT which is probably worth just about as much as the frame itself. But I still haven't spent 3 grand \o/

What I don't understand is why you are replacing the perfectly good stock Sugino RD2 cranks on that bike. It is your bike, so you have every right to do so, but it just seems a bit out of sync with the quality level of the frame.

Yeah, I remember that guy. I think I handed him his ass pretty good in that thread and then he proceeded to e-mail me repeatedly, which I responded by repeatedly re-handing him his ass.

Well all I'm gonna do is get a new $200 wheel set. I need a new front one anyway for a brake. Everything else on this bike is stock and even with new wheels I'll will have paid less than a new one costs.

I don't know why I bought the cranks either. It was a pretty impulsive decision. And you're right. The stock cranks are really good. But hey now I have an extra set of cranks to put on something else.

I bought the chain ring and a new rear cog with the intention of hitting about 60 gear inches for the winter. I came in close too! Dropping from from 48x16 to 44x20.

I'm running 48 x 21 with a 700 x 35c tire on mine, which works out to about 62 gi. I had been using it as a shopping mule with saddle bags, but now that job has been relegated to my Motobecane Messenger and Salsa Casseroll 7-speed IGH, so I'm going back to a 19T on the WT.

Wasn't trying to talk **** by the way, I just can't think of a state bIke without thinking of that story, ride your bike till the wheels fall off. Just make sure to avoid super deep wheels cause they are pointlessly heavy, unless you want a training wheel.

I just read that thread. I hope in the time that's passed since then, that some of the people on this forum have cleaned the sand from their nether regions. The butthurt is real

Damn...that's not even the thread I was thinking about. I suppose I've handed a good number of people their asses so it's easy to get confused.

Wasn't this the guy you accused of being a shill for State ?

IIRC he did some design work for State and received a bike as payment. I wish I still had the rambling e-mails he ended up sending me. They were pure gold.

Nope. That's the same one that was already posted above. The other one I'm thinking of was better.

That dude's undefeated costs as much as my Dean. Crazy.

Lots of old names in that thread. Haven't seen Carleton in a while. Does he only hang out in the track racing section now?

Doh. That is the one I remembered though.
@Dave1978 , don't take my first comment to hard. Your bike seems nice; it just doesn't deserve its own thread. You should have posted it in the pics thread. There's also a whole thread devoted to cool stories called Today I.
