      Looks nice man.. I love a nice road bike.

      Side note:

      Friday, I was riding my friends bike. I mounted up on the seat and my leg clipped my exhaust on my car (ansa sport). It has the angled, bevelled tips. Fuckin sliced my leg open. It started bleeding, barely even noticed I cut it. So I bandaged it up, and started playing some xbox. Sure as fuck it started bleeding more and more. So I went to Vanderbilt ER. What a lame way to spend a Friday... Worst night ever.
      Check it out!

      Click there ^ for the grusome shit.. Didnt want to offend anyone. Its farely brutal.
      My laceration fucked a blood vessell coincidentally. I filled up a few wash clothes and 3 rolls of the hospitals gauze. Boom! 10 stitches and I'm back on my bike the next day.

          Well, not at the time. It never hurt at all. I guess I clipped the nerve while I was at it. It wasnt hurting, so I wasnt in a rush. Plus, my insurance blows and I dont want to pay for it. It got serious, so I'm paying for it.

            Ok, finally finished up the bike today and went on a nice long ride. I installed the Cane Creek SCR3 front brake today. I love how tiny the caliper is :) Anyways, here's the pr0n:

              s0urce, where did you get those wheels? I want new wheels, but I want something different than deep v's. And you bike looks amazing.

              scabzzz, HOLY FUCK! That is nasty! How many stitches did you have to get?

                Thanks guys. The stem is pretty fucking ugly, but there's something about it I really like. It's rigid as hell, and I like how the brake line runs through the stem.

                ^Those wheels are from Ben's Cycle. Just go under track/fixed gear parts > Track wheelsets> Vuelta Pista XRP track wheelset.

                  Looks tits Chris. I can't wait to see it IRL. Don't know why you're rocking the clipins though... I hated mine.

                    Bender, is that a Brew frameset?

                    THe brazing around the lugs looks great. PM me on how much you get for one of these? I'm not too far from Philly.

                      Fuck! They're sold out. :(

                      Are they good wheels? They're pretty cheap!

                        So far I love them, they're solid as hell. I'd rate them up there with the Deep V's for a fraction of the price. One thing to keep in mind is your chainline. I had to move the chainring to the inside of the crankarm on the driveline side to achive a good chainline with these hubs. The cogs that come with the wheels are total CRAP though. They're just stamped metal with crap lockrings. Make sure you swap on a good surly/EAI/Milwaukee cog/lockring.

                            Wow s0urce... I love the stem btw. Whats up with the brake? The lever is in a weird spot and the cable is like a foot too long.. but looks like delicious titties every where else!

                            And guys... on Ebay there are fully laced Weinmann DP18 Deep V wheels for like 180 shipped.. Go check it out.

                            Also, it took 10 stitches and some morphine to get me outa there

                              Yeah bender, i'm not sure that's an SE, they don't have brazing. I think it's the frame Milwaukee is putting out. Their logo is a beer mug. Besides- SE's are total pieces of shit

                                So I think I am going to start looking for a real track frame and build it up slowly to replace my Fuji conversion eventually. Not really in a hurry because I am really enjoying the Fuji, and it's been a great learning experience.

                                What would you guys recommend I look for in the frame? Should I look for something vintage/used? Or should I just save myself the trouble and buy one of those mass produced no-name track frames.
                                I would check out that Milwaukee frame that was just posted up.

                                Edit- I'm wrong- that isnt the cream city frame. But i highly reccomend the milwaukee frame.
