Thread: Mr Pink - caution: contents not actually pink

  1. #1

    Mr Pink - caution: contents not actually pink

    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

    The wheels:
    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.

    I'd also consider alchemy Orc hubs and tune mig mag hubs.
    Both are great hubs.

    yea try fairwheel bikes for rims and hubs.. they are well priced and have lots of very desirable goodies..
    they also have their own rims which are ment to be swwwweeeetttt..
    nice looking frame by the way, i'd get the forks black and glossed to match the frame but thats a nice setup you got there!

    Yeah it's not a frame I would have thought I would like, but it looks real nice with that fork and the nice parts you have.
    I will be watching this build.
