Pixie Racer 1.0

We heard that they do pixie races at Slaughterama, so we built a racing bike. First we put a nice long stem and a lean-back bmx seatpost on so you won't hit your knees on the bars. I'm 6'2" and it fit me. Then a nice cushy seat, and finally a set of aerodynamic Scott bars. But, we flew too close to the sun. The chainring wasn't big enough.

Problem: How can you race with a tiny chainring?

Solution: take fucking dremel and cut out most of the drive-side chain stay. Brilliant.

Problem: stupid idea destroyed rear triangle.

Oh well, live and learn. Looks really cool though, huh?
