1999 SE Racing Quadangle


This is the last year of USA production for SE Racing.  It's a pretty sweet frameset... super long and comfy for the adult sized rider.


I wanted to build this realistically, using nice but not particularly exotic parts... I wanted it to be a realistic rendition of what I'd have built if I was say... a 17 expert in 1999.


This was the first time I'd built a bike with threadless headset and canti mounts, etc. from the ground up.  I feel so contemporary and with it! :wink:


Note that I'm only posting this to prime the pump, so to speak... it will be ineligible for voting, since I'm running the show.

Homeless Mack SL

I got this frame a couple years back. It was originally built up in 1991 by Carl Lein. Carl built the first jump at what we all know as Ninth Street in Austin TX.

Carl sold it to my friend Brian Allmand around 95 or 96.

I got it from Brian a couple years ago to round out my Homeless collection.

This is the first time I have built this frame into a complete.

James Shepherd was by my place a couple of months ago with the Mack SL he had just built. He is pictured with his bike.


Seeing James' bike inspired me to build mine. The parts used were all on hand in my garage. Nothing has been re-finished. More like barely cleaned. Fork Stickers are reproductions from the batch I had made. All other stickers, finishes original.


Parts are as follows:

F/F: Homeless SL 21 1/2" top tube/Homeless First gen. Second gen legs  did not extend past bottom of dropouts.

Bars:Redline Forflifter First gen

Stem: Homeless XL

Headset: Bear Trap

Cranks, Sprocket, Pedals: Profile 182mm, Odyssey, ShimanoDX

Wheels: Super Pro, Primo V monster Tires

Brake: AD-990 Tech 5 Lever, Odyssey Cable

Grips: Jive Handles

Seat: Selle Italia

Post: Dyno

Seat Post Clamp: Odyssey
