I've wasted a load of time trying to decide on what forks to go for, ended up picking a set of air sprung Sektors. Mostly because of price, weight and colour. I now have enough to start the build and as soon as the wheels are built it should go togetehr pretty quick.

Ah right! So you can rotate it and then secure it in place. Makes sense :)

Come on Kaiser, get that build moving now.

After 2 months just a oneliner text about parts arriving, that's teasing. I've come close to buying an Alpine twice, and an Albert IIRC.

Looks ace in white too.

Enjoy!!

Have we got a go slow build race going on? :lol:
I still haven't done much with my Pace yet and I think we got them on the same day. :oops:

Be interested to hear your thoughts on the hubs as well.

Minor update!

Image


I'll hopefully order spokes this week, but need to manufacture an adaptor for the 15mm hub and my jig.

I should use some parts I have already but I really want a set of wide black bars(rather than the white ones I have) and a black Spoon (rather than the brown one and the white one I have) I will use an old chainset though till something nice comes along.
