So some of yall probably remember this bike and when it was stolen. It’s been almost a year and a half and someone was rolling around on it yesterday. Won’t say where he was spotted or who saw him but the guy said he picked it up at a pawn shop for $180. Was running clipless pedals and had a Schwinn sticker on the front of it haha. After all the BS over this bike (some of you know whats up) and how long ago it was should I confront the guy and take it back or let it go? I wasn’t the one who saw him and don’t know if I will but multiple people confirmed seeing this long lost ride.
It looks just like this but with:
– Brand New White Julians.
– Brand New BMX Cranks (black and look like profles)
– Nemesis Project Trackfighter. (custom built to my measurments so it wont fit too many people)
– Profile Imperial Sprocket.
– Purple Nem Pro Risers.
– White Mirra Grips.
– White Avoset USA Seat (same as a turbo)
– Specialized Stem
– Chrome Landing Gear Fork.
Im so fucking pissed right now. The bike was taken literally off my porch. Ran inside for 5 minutes and came back out to have it gone. Two of my friends bikes were still there untouched. In order to pick it up youd have to walk though a gate and past my door so im thinking it may have been someone visiting one of the other units in my building. We leave our bikes outside my door all the time while we use the toilet and such. 5 fucking minutes! Most of this shit is brand new…just put the wheels and cranks on last night. Please please please be on the look out for it. Ill give someone a gift if they can track it down. At the moment I dont even have enough stuff to put a bike together. Ill be walking for a minute.

Heres a shot of the first Nemesis Project TrackFighter build. Brad asked me a while back to follow him through the process of what it takes to build a bike by hand…snapping some photos and taking in info along the way. I ran it by the guys at Eighthinch and they were more than down with me helping support a local frame builder and alas…this bike was born. Im going to be dinking around on it here and there in the coming weeks to see how it feels and will post a sort of “mini review” along with the build process. Stay posted for that!
…and before anyone says anything…the steerer on the fork is sticking out above the stem so much because it fits my scrambler better with it long. Hopefully that will head off any inappropriate jokes ;). Haha.
Back at it after a long summer…Brad from Nemesis Project has these three custom handbuilt track frame variations up for grabs. Whew, awkwardly worded sentence. Being a local Sacramentan and having done some fork mods for me, not to mention the trips to Rubicon, ive seen quite a bit of his work. Hand built and meticulously crafted, his bikes come out looking pretty dang clean. So if you’re looking for something a little more personal and have the change to spare, peep the goods he has to offer.
