Long story short: always been into bikes, fixed, MTB etc.
Got fat (ish). Bought a roadie. Lost (most of) it. Had a Trek/Fisher Ion Pro which, while being an amazing bike, never quite fit me right. I wasn't really in the market for a new bike, but this frame came up at the right price.
Sorry these photos are shit. My DSLR just fucked out and i need to go get it serviced.
The geo is spot on. 56TT, 1000WB, 415 stays, 73/73.8 SA / HA. Just brilliant... It's a little beardo with it's massive rear clearances, but it still accepts regular brakes so no sweat.
But steel forks aren't my game... So i sorted that right out...
Obligatory CK SV
Thought i'd give SRAM a try. Picked this up on BNA (thanks to whoever recommended it) for the right price as well... If only he'd remembered to send the cassette
Parts to come:
Thomson X2 100mm
Thomson Elite 27.2
Selle Italia Flite (I think....)
Deda something bars
Brooks Leather Tape Black
I'm quite keen to get a 20/24 spoke White Bros T11 - h+sons archetype rolling, but i've been informed the globe is out of black archetypes until march ... Such is life... Four weeks away ain't bad. I'll see if I can land a deal on some King R45's before then..
Thanks to all who have put in their 2c on the build in the wanted section.
