Getting there....

After a year with the Brutie, I've finally started to makes some tasteful adjustments. Thanks to all the forum members that have helped along the way, this place is amazing!









And as always, just when I think I'm about there I notice 5 more things I'd like to do. No more cosmetics until I get rid of that cat though!

Is that Corbin Seat comfy on a long ride, lets say over 200 miles? if so where can I pick one up?

Faster! Faster! Until the thrill of speed overcomes my fear of death!

as a Philly native, I can pretty safely say that I bet the Brute doesn't care for cobblestones- especially when wet. But the bike looks great!

The corbin is a world of difference. I picked it up prior to getting the suspension sorted (I'm maybe 140lbs with gear) and just the seat change made 200+ mile rides doable. Highly recommended.

I got mine through FBF.

Hell, the bike doesn't like stop signs, let alone cobblestones! Unfortunately, both are hard to avoid around these parts. Lots of clutch action on the 'ol streets.

Glad to see the rear sets -- bouncing about on the cobbles should feel better. Looking good. see you out and about.

I ordered the corbin seat. Glad to see you think it makes a difference.

Very nice mate. You planning on leaving the front fender in carbon or getting some decals or custom paint on it?
