So glad you shared this. Good on you, good on your dad for being your BMX enabler among what must have been a lot of great dad things. Oh, and nice bike.

I wound up running the stem pointing up to give him a tad more of an upright position.

Looking good, Allan pal. Your dad should be proud.

If you want to "transform" the ride for your dad further, get this tire, keep the pressure low, that's all it takes.

559Rando recommended those too. Do you run them tubeless?

Here are a few more pics I pulled off my my Flickr.

Christmas time my parents were out here in MPLS and my Dad took pics of me fillet brazing the front triangle.



Compass sells these sweet gauges for alignment! I had gotten this surface plate from an industrial auction site right here in Minneapolis. SO nice to be able to do a quick check at home instead of taking it to work.

I was originally going to attempt to use S-Bent chainstays but the limits of the BB shell sockets changed my mind for me.
