    Nice whip. Is that a Zaskar?

    Those bullhorns look like they're a foot and a half long. Is that just wide-angle lens distortion, or are you a Yeti?

    sup

    Most of y'all know me in real life, but some of you don't. I went to a psych ward again almost a year ago---and then when I got out a few weeks later, I just didn't log back in. Nothing personal, far from it. I'm not even sure why I didn't come back. I remember the day I got out was the Secret Satan party I had to miss because I was in DC, and it was really cool to video chat in. I look forward to the party this year.

    Like I said, almost everyone here I know IRL and those I don't probably didn't give a shit that I was gone, but there you have it.

    Hello I'm Steve, I started school in Boston three years ago and when I got an apartment I suddenly found myself obsessed with bicycles. Stoked there a community of riders and a forum to back up. Catch me riding around in Allston and drinking brews over in Models.

    It's so close to my band's practice space, but we practice on Mondays so there's not a big motivation to go out after. Though that didn't stop me from getting a bit faced at Green St. last week.

    Just picked her up, and holy crap there's so much toe overlap, sucks to be a short rider with a 48cm frame, but I've had my eye on a sword sq for a while now. Might swap the fork with something with something with more rake but for now maybe it's something I can get used to

    Fork looks interesting. Are the drops welded to the front, or is that some kind of weird illusion from the photo?Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)

    nerdo:Fork looks interesting. Are the drops welded to the front, or is that some kind of weird illusion from the photo?


    Here's a better pic. They have a 35m rake, I love the look but but I might be looking into a fork with more rake to reduce the toe over lap.

    It's going to affect the handling, but maybe it's worth a try. I have several 48cm square Terrys that handle perfectly with no toe overlap, and I think small front wheels looks sick af. It's really the only way to properly build small bikes."life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries

    This frame has a pretty small 500mm top tube, my old soma rush had a 525mm which is good inch longer, and never had toe over lap with that frame, It also had a slightly raked out fork at 38mm instead of 35mm on the sword, Im slowly getting used to the overlap, the bike rides too good to give up :D

    Smaller cranks might help, too. That's a ridiculous amount of overlap. Good luck with it!"life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries

    Im seriously thinking of getting a 650c in the front, no toe overlap, super aggressive positioning, and weight savings, ha!
