Yay! After a lot of work and broken tools, my bike is road worthy again!

-I replaced every single nut, bolt, lock washer, and flat washer with hardened steel and used 2 and half .50oz bottles of LockTite on it!
-Added a second chain roller to my tensioner and replaced the rubber shielded bearings with ceramic high speed bearings.
-Finally, I have two kevlar lined city tires coming via FedEx, two 5mm Mr. Toughy tire liners here waiting, and two extra thick 26" tubes with fix-a-flat preload.

Nice ride, I like the tri spoked rims. Are they carbon fibre?

Thank you. They are lightweight aluminum tri-forks. Can't remember the brand off the top of my head but I bought them from a local bike shop at $120 per rim. Worth every penny.

Nice ride bud, I haven't quite seen that chain tension setup before. I guess it prevents it from going into the wheel?

Thank you. And MotorBike - Wayne is correct. It also keeps the chain from bouncing against my bike frame... I was worried about cutting through my frame while I was riding. Wouldn't have ended well.

Also looking at getting a new gas frame for it... Slow upgrades but everyone tells me to just get a motorcycle and be done with it... Hehehe, if only they knew my plans for this beast!
