This is the Frankinbike that I took apart for the Kona build and had an idea. So this is the mockup before I repaint it white. What is it?
Someyear Schwinn Sidewinder frame 26"
DK dirtjump forks 26"
Wheels off of my Ascension 29er
Kenda 700c tires
Flat handlebar from Sidewinder
Stem taken off wife's Dawes MTB
Will put Schwinn Ascension drivtrain.

Been considering a new Hybrid/cyclocross style build myself. That front tire looks wildly large for that frame, which is actually cool :D
Hmmm...

Looks good. . Only hard part is gonna be brakes. Do you have holes that some side pulls can fit into?

In the back? Yes. In the front I'll have to drill.

Ok. This may be doable. Crap. Guess I better test fit my cruiser brakes to see if I can pull this same thing off.

Layed down the white today. Will kill me to not screw with it while it cures.

I ordered those same decals! Looks good man. Are they under the clearcoat or on top of it?
