Apparently I put the wrong wheels on the Thrasher, 26" Sun MTX 33 rims with Panaracer RIBMO 26x2 tires. And it actually rides pretty nice! The bottom bracket is so high on the Thrasher with the Fu Manchu that it is still a decent 11.5" sitting on 26's. The chain was able to shorten up a whole link making the rear wheelbase even tighter. I'm going to have to give a full report after I ride a bit, and interesting experiment for me...

I was ready, just as if I was headed out for a days work nearly a decade ago. Kissed my wife and out the door I went to get soggy, real soggy.
Fortunately it dried out in time for the race to start, so it would be a little safer, but the damage was already done. Everybody was soaked and turning into prunes while waiting to register and start.
After the first couple of relays I was definitely cooked, but there was no quitting for me today. My partner Adam was probably the fastest sprinter up and back on the parkway, so I had to keep it going no matter what. It was getting hot and steamy at his point, this picture is me trying to keep my head from exploding.
I believe this was me waiting for my last relay to go to Washington Square Park, just trying to air out my head. I was soaked and hot and tired, 8th and Locust was never so far away as it was on Saturday. But I did it, We did it! We finished the race, not first and not last.
Congrats to Justin and TJ who actualy won the race!

After a little creative steerer tube threading, it is as it should be. Many thanks to Hozan for making a lovely cutting tool. Will do some more finished pics of it soon, but this was too exciting to wait.

We have been given the opportunity to add our personality and flavor to this modern classic and are very proud to introduce it to you.
This unique collaboration between two kindred spirits is now available only at your favorite bicycle shop on 4th street in philadelphia. I invite you to come visit the shop and check out my build and talk about making one uniquely yours.
I am absolutely loving this bike and was able to get it out for a nice 40 mile ramble this weekend, taking full advantage of the holiday and the 90+ degree weather.
