Yeah took me a second to realize the no pic ... spacing.

Good looking bikes though.

I'm still at the point of needing to bleed my brakes from the last time I had my Kona Dawg Deluxe out.
I HATE bleeding brakes on a bicycle. Hydraulic brakes are ok but when it's time to do adjustments and bleeding it makes me wish I'd swapped them out to BB7s a while back. They are Hayes Carbon Strokers and OEM with the bike. When they are working right and in tune they are great but working on them is an exercise in fiddle factor. Get them right on the stand and then put my fat rear end on it and they'll be rubbing sure as certain.

Ah, bikes are like guns. You should see the rig I came up with to mate the Tioga disc to the Redline cranks.

I'd upgrade to low-end Shimano. No fiddling and cheaper than BB7s. All the other hydros just suck.
44mag and 357mag are my choices for rifle/revolver cartridges.

My latest project is a build to raffle away to raise funds for the local county youth baseball league for which I sit on the Board of Directors.

You can see our website (for which I am the maintainer) here ---> Boys Baseball of Cooke County

Since I am now doing PR/IT/social media for the league it's pretty easy for me to get sponsors involved. (I really bit off more than can easily chew having to learn Facebook and all). Check us out on Facebook @BoysBaseball.

Anyway you can see the news story I wrote and published to the site if you click the "read more" on the preview of the article about the bike. In the meantime here are some pictures of my first ever "New School" build. I'd done 4-5 "Old School" and two "mid-school" builds up the this point.

If you wanna know the differences just ask and I'll keep typing. Meanwhile...here are some pics.
