sweet looking bike, very clean :) I have those same cranks, i love them, they're really light!

I'd really like to get a nice SS build now...

looks sweet but would look 1000000 times better with some slightly skinnier tyres on there!

also, something that's been bugging me, do all americans have their brake levers on the wrong sides or is it just personal preference? :wink:

All americans do it.

And many ex - bmx ers.

Just remember it when you borrow a bike in america.

(go for a big skid. result. spectacular endo).

Really like the look of that, phat tyres too.

Why do they fit an eccentic BB thing instead of horizontal dropouts??

:lol: I thought this was the right way, ha!

Though it's always fun to see spectacular endos :wink:

Vicious makes these ss frames with a choice of the eccentric BB or the horizontal/track dropouts. This one happens to have the EBB, perhaps because of the rear disc brakes. I believe EBBs to work best with a rear disc brake since it eliminates the need for an adjustable rear brake mount, though there are a couple track/horizontal ss rear disc brake setups that work well; I had a kona unit with a rear disc brake that was seated on an adjustable mount with the track dropout. The canti/v-brake versions of this frame have the horizontal/track dropout, so perhaps that's the reasoning for the ebb.

Hah, that would bug the hell out of me, i don't think i'd ever get used to it!

Or maybe it's just us british (europeans?) being awkward :P
