It lives...



So, the Frankenbike has finally been ridden. Noteworthy: within 2 minutes, i had managed to get 2 dog craps on th front wheel. Actually, one may have been cat (p-phone...?!).

Also noteworthy, it rides pretty normally. As in, the number crunching left me with a bike that deals with the 55mm offset/69er+ set up pretty well.

The bb needs to be about 1.5" to 2" lower i reckon....for proper moto feel, but that is for a different (custom) frame...so we'll see once ive ridden it for a bit.

Been under the weather for a few days. Spent all of sunday in bed. As in, i was up for 2 hrs in 24. Still shaky but less fever and headache going...will be taking it easy for a day or two yet.
