My non-commuting bike

My Solid AAv.2.  I was rididing a 2000 s&m dirtbike classic since...  well 2000.  I never could justify buying new BMX parts until I started working in bike shops again.  This is my dream bike and it is long overdue.

Full bike check after the jump.

Yes i know my steerer needs to get cut, i haven't gotten around to it yet.

Weight:  24.3 pounds

Review/thoughts about my bike two months after building it:  feels nice but next bike will def be 20.5,11.5,75,71,13.5.  laid back 69 degree seat tube makes seat hard to hold with legs for barspins.  fork and tires are heavy need to replace them.  solid cromo spindle is also keeping me away from 22.5 lbs, my goal.  that's very light for a bmx with pegs and breaks.
