So I don't have a current picture of my bike, only some old ones. Since these pictures, I have added a Wound-Up track fork and wrapped the bars. I'll be sure to post those later.

So a bit about me. I love cycling and have been working on bikes for a little over a year. Through much advice and help of people on forums and people at my LBS and kitchens, I have been able to build my own bike from the ground up including lacing the wheels you see in the picture (my first set! :lol: ). Anyway, I have begun to worry about the weight of my bike hence all the little upgrades here and there. I realize that my bike's frame isn't the lightest out there, but after I save up enough, at least I can transfer the nice parts to an equally nice frame. But I just love the way she rides.

So without further ado, my NASA GTB :)

She is! And she rides wonderfully, but she just is a bit on the heavy side. there was the Pulse which was exactly the same but a bit lighter.

Well, since you are associated with NASA, I bet you won't have a hard time finding ways to lighten it. :welcome:
