Sacrilegious Milwaukee Bruiser Jan 3, 2010

As I was heading back from riding with Ed Glazar today (more on that later) I swung by Calvary Cemetary in Queens. I’ve ridden by it 100 times and never actually went inside, at least not through this entrance. While inside, I snapped a few pics of my matte black Bruiser. Check some more pics out and a built list below.

Milwaukee wanted my Bruiser that I took to Tokyo to have it in the shop. It had a lot of character and it’ll look cool up on the wall. I kept the fork, but wanted to change it up a bit. The intention was to make it more of a dripping wax or corpse paint look, but then I realized it just looks like a Krink ad. I still dig it and can’t wait for it to get beaten up a bit.

Full build list:
-Large Production Milwaukee Bruiser frameset
Syncros stem
Chris King black Sotto Voce headset

Some more pics are up here on my Flickr, including a few of the tire clearance with a 39c tire.
