Started the build around 2pm on Saturday, including stripping and cleaning the bits off the Quadra (which I'd commuted to work and back on earlier that day!). With a few breaks in between I finished at around 11 at night! Test-rode it for a leisurely 90-minute loop yesterday afternoon and all's well apart from a bit of minor gear slippage and not so minor brake squeal, which is probably due to the blocks needing to be toed-in a bit better. In the end, I had to use the Deore MT62s off my Fort CX bike, as the Frogleg canti set proved to be wide-profile in more than one sense (depth as well as width) and fouled the rear pannier rack.
The Froglegs will be donated to the cross bike in return (as it should be, I guess - they are after all largely a CX racer's brake), so setting that up will be my bike project for the next couple of evenings! The CX bike has also had an accidental BB unit upgrade to a spare Hope one, as the Tange BB on the Quadra was in a bad way, but I needed to finish the build in time for this morning's commute so out came the rather superior Tange one fitted to the Fort. Lots of fun & games but the end result looks and rides very well.
Pics to follow later this week....
