      seems to me that freewheel riders make a bigger deal about fixed bikes that fixed riders do.

      A Rabbit is not to be wasted on the tentative or weak. Only the worthy are invited, and then only at your own risk. If you have even a modicum of hesitation, DO NOT buy one of these cars. Instead, leave it for a worthy soul who has already matriculated to the sublime ecstasy of what those in the know refer to as a "MK1"

      made some progress

      i just bolted the thing together, pulled it off the stand, took pics, and hung it back up in the garage. nothing is adjusted and the axle nuts arent even tight. i was just so stoked that i could throw it back together and have it look like a bike. i never ride in the drops, so ill be getting some pursuit bars sometime soon, but for now its double levers (one functional) and drops.

      Yea... at first I thought it was the standard Langster frame with a better component package but it is completely different... tis why I bought it. I MAY run a front brake for a while but I wish it didnt have cable stops... at least its not drilled for a rear brake LOL. I should have it in Friday.
