Brandon's Cross Dresser Bike Check

There is something particularly rewarding about putting together a banger ride from parts found (mostly) in those soiled, brown boxes under mechanics' benches.

Tits-on-top-tubes paved the way for dicks-on-drop-bars...which eventually gave-way to dicks-on-down-tubes. It all just happened so fast.

  2. Yeah, it's pretty destroyed, but I needed something to hang my parts off of until I can afford my own.

    Beautiful frame; shame about the cracks.

  3. If you need a cross frame, I've got a 2 year old Fetish Cycles Position cross frame in white. If you can Unstick the seat post, she's yours.

  4. Fetish, eh?

    I would love to take a stab at it.
