    My new bike rebuild after El Raptor fell apart on me o_O
    This one has come together so easily, I think the parts were chosen by a divine being.

    I like it!
    My personal feeling is that the chain is way heavier and thicker than necessary and that a narrower and lighter KMC 410/ HL710 chain would make the tensioner set up a lot easier. I think that if you are riding on roads then your speed will be better and safer with a set of slick tyres, might give you some more clearance for the chain too. Hmm, what else, oh yeah I thought the white light on the rear is odd and confusing, and the red one is hidden by the fuel tank. The stem could _possibly_ be lowered a little (minding to stay off the butting taper at the bottom of the steerer of course). Just my personal thoughts though. It looks like a great bike anyway. :)

    Thanks for your thoughts! I've tried slick tires and found that they make the bike fishtail of all things :p
    I am going to put a red transparent plastic filter over that light. The red light I couldn't move upwards for a weird reason that's hard to explain. I appreciate your input!
