Well after pre ordering this thing back in January 5th it finally showed up on my door step this Monday 9/24/12
I have big plans for this one and it does not include building it as fast as I can......
This one is going to go though some changes that will make it a one of a kind I hope and stand alone in a flock of clones.
I will be adding pictures as I go and show details about what my plans are for this one as they progress.
So stay tuned and see if I can pull off what i have been thinking about for 9 1/2 monthes

This will be the last time you see this bike in this condition

I fit the bullseye bottom bracket and like everyone says the right side is a pain to screw in even after cleaning up the threads a bit more. I had to test fit the drive train to see what I will be able to do after all the talk of you could only run a 40 tooth I wanted to make sure I would have room to run a 43 tooth up front and a 16 out back and make sure everything would line up. I was able to fit a 44 tooth no problem due to the notch in the frame that the final draft of this bike has. I think that was a very good idea to add the notch and it will allow people more freedom on the gear ration they want.

Sorry about the fuzzy pics my camera doesn't like the dark so much, but it's good enough to show what I am doing (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

44 Tooth chain ring just fits in. I tried a 45 but it was a bit to close for me.

The spacer I used is about 5mm thick between the bearing and power disc

Black Bullseye bottom bracket is about the only thing that will be the same when complete (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Got the stickers peeled off nicely. They came off pretty easy being so new. Saves me the money on buying more aswell.

Had to put them on foil because we were out of wax paper. Will put them on plain white paper to make scans for the water slide transfers (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Ha Ha... my Skyway is lighter than your LOL......... The prototypes had a drilled brake bridge and I was a little sad when I saw the final product did not. Some of you might hate on me for doing this but it's my bike and I will have it my way (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
