This is a bike I just put together for my friend who cant really afford parts and usually relies on getting the homies old broken/stock parts. I hooked him up with my old frame and bars. His forks, seat, chain, and grips were originally mine aswell but I gave them to him a while ago. I repainted the forks and put the OG decals on them. I maintaned his bike, ie replaced obliterated bearings, scrubbed away rust and salt/dirt, regreased EVERYTHING. He got the hubs, right pegs, front rim, cranks, and temporary pedals and sprocket from our other friend. This is his first completely aftermarket bike and its the first time his bike has been dialed and functioned properly since his stock bike.

Frame- The Make Croft 21"
Fork- Odyssey cs2
Bars- Mutiny Glam v2 8.4x29
Cranks- Sunday Saker
Seat- United Beacon XL
Seatpost- Nitrous pivotal
Headset- Premium
Bottom bracket- Shadow 19mm Mid
Sprocket- Odyssey Vermont 25t (waiting for Animal v3 28t to get pulled from his old cranks at the bike shop)
Pedals- Odyssey Twisted (waiting for Animal Hamilton sealeds to be pulled from his old cranks)
Grips- ODI Longneck
Rear wheel- Odyssey Hazard v3 48h to Odyssey 7ka 48h w/ BSD Jersey Barrier
Front wheel- Kink Viridian v1 to Specialized
Pegs- 2x Odyssey 2x Shadow Little Ones
Chain- KMC 410H
Tires- Demolition Momentum 2.35 front, Odyssey Dirt 1.85 rear

Mods- We used a 4pawl driver from a sunday stock hub (since the hazard driver was destroyed) and it hung out of the hub a little bit, so we used a FlipTrix tire to seal off the gap and it fit PERFECT.
One side of the front wheel is laced 2x because we didnt have the right sized spokes.
His internal bottom bracket spacer was way too short so we stacked a bunch of regular spindle spacers up inside his bottom bracket.

His bike before I got to pimp it out

Hell yeah! Dude is practically my brother haha. We spent probably 6-7hours building this bike because so much of his old bike was WRECKED! And Im anal about proper maintenance/function so I spent alot of time fixing things that should have probably gone in the trash and been replaced! But I brought it all back to life I suppose! Im proud to see majority of my old parts go to someone who deserves them. That is worth far more than the money I could have got for them imo. The frame WILL be going on my wall if he can manage to break it. Its still my baby!
