The latest steed in the stable: the Kona Unit 2-9

I built my front wheel last night, so the new Unit 2-9 singlespeed is up and running. I'll post more, better quality pictures later.

What fork is that, you might be asking? It's a Manitou X-Vert super with a whopping 65mm of travel. Beyond Mod and a few others, it's a little-known secret that the X-Vert, though designed for 26-inch wheels, has (barely) enough clearance to run a 29er wheel with a 2.2 Bontrager Jones ACX tire. It'll do until I raise the dough to order a Reba...

Merry Christmas!

Matt, you've got some rad new friends. I was going to tell you at the shop today but sondy busted in, I'm actually going to live with all of them. I hope their parents raped some common sense into them as children because, well, my beer cans don't recycle themselves and I'll be damned if I'll actually cut off their 3 inch metric limp dicks. Yeah.
Got back?
I got razorblades and cigarrettes.
step motherfuckers. Oh wait, I'll put down the jameson first.
