I went nuts pimping this bike out, but it was a lot of subtle work. Stem from our hardworking mod GoldenE

Geez BP, between you and Nate, you're killin' me with the Phoeni.

Nice build; looks like a great racer. (brakes aren't too shabby either :wink: ).

Super nice! Surprised you didn't go for the drillium version of the chain guard. Dig the SS-7s too. Post up some more pics!

had to fix that for accuracy.

Sweet build; glad the stem went to such great use. I'm a fan of subtle pimping 8)

nice bike... and those brakes are sweet. You must know CC? I've not seen those toggle links except on a very few select bikes.
What is the stem?
