I have just entered the electronic era by purchasing a digital camera. I need help loading photos that will appear as full screen shots rather than thumbnails. Can someone please help me? Anyway here is a beater I finished yesterday, My uncle Jer gave me the wheels, they came back on warranty from someone who didnt like the noise from the rear hub(King whineing sound). Anyway please offer suggestions to get propler looking photos. Thanks.

Funny,I don't know how to post thumbnails.I use photobucket as my host. They provide direction on their site. What grips are you thinking about putting on that thing. Nice bike though it's more commuter than beater:D.

As posted in my riding thread....

I recently found an old steel Shogun and it is now my commuter/ psuedo-cross bike. The paint job is awesome and I just touched it up with some por-15.

I polished the brakes and cranks with some polishing compound and a dremel. The chainrings and chain came super clean and almost look new. Swicthed out the saddle because it was like a rock. J at Halters dug out some old bars and a stem that fit me better and I threw on some modern brake lever since the old ones were UBER uncomfortable. Silver bar tape and blue housing. Got some cross tires and poof, nice versitile commuter. Check out the seat bag I dug out at Halters!

The weak link on this bike is the wheelset but I will stick with 'em until they get beat up. I saw some sweet vuelta blue rims with a flip-flop hub which may be an idea for the future. Fixie? SS?

So now I have a cool commuter, a chrome bag. Bring on the knickers and roadie hat and I'll be set!

Thanks to Spence, just because.

Nice bike, it would be nice to see some fixies here as well. Around here its alot of beach cruisers, litterally thousands of them, we get alot of choppers, rats, shaker can-stolen, and fresh out of the showroom cruisers. Mines a 20 year old schwinn.

but there are others... my most recent creations include my Salsa 650B Roadster and the Kogswell P/R (also 650B wheels)... I feel like I died and went to commuter heaven, owning these gems....

Heehee. I asked that like 3 times on here and got answers, but still have not been able to do it. Off to photobucket to experiment.
