      I hated the weird tribal flames on the rear triangle so I covered them and the paint chips with some stickers!




      Just waiting on a package from Jenson and Chainreaction then I can start building this thing up.

      haha the geometry is oddly close
      However my chain reaction package came and my last one needed should be here by Thursday then I will have EVERYTHING I need finally.
      Once it comes I shall get pictures up of the built front wheel and all the parts that are going onto this thing.

      Getting mighty anxious to get this bike built up and be able to ride it.
      Still another 2.5 - 3 months before the snow is melted

      Once it is built I will christin it by dropping off this (only about 5 feet high or so)


      and some other huck bikes for good measure:

      Got a "rolling chassis" going now:


      I couldn't be happier with how it came out. I am extremely glad I didn't listen to all the people telling me to just build up a used Giant Glory or a Demo or something.

      Sadly I still have to wait another two months or so until it is bike weather out

      if all you want to do is ride around and jump curbs and such, as you said, then who gives a crap about some snow. i think that bike has the clearance to handle it... bundle up and go have fun.

      They are DMR wingbars.
      I got them for super cheap off Chain Reaction during a sale.

      Poor big hit

      this takes me way back, unfortunately bikes like this never looked cool in my mind. In Quebec we were all about the Balfa BB7!

      It has been freakishly nice out for the middle of March so I took it out today and it was amazing!
      It may be the funnest bike I have ever ridden.

      Huckers from the late 90s are proud of what you have done here.

      That picture reminds me, I need to find a super monster T!
      I like the forks I have but they leak like crazy and are just too small.

      I will get some nice HD footage of me riding off some stuff on this thing once finals are all wrapped up.

      By saying - 'riding off stuff', you actually mean - Riding over hobos at a high rate of speed; correct?

      I love this bike, just because it looks like a blast to ride around. Theres a picture floating around of a Monster T next to a few other triple crown forks and its crazy. Ill try to find it in a moment.

      Keep us updated!

      Edit: found it...

      I had to switch back to my Monster T as my Stratos has some major leaking problems.
      I found a brand new in box Super Monster T on pinkbike but the seller wants way too much for it
