'bout time too slack ass update.

Front end is a little low as no headset yet. I couldn't find anything half decent in time, so have gone with LX cranks with a modified spider for runnng the single 36 Middleburn ring. I know... I'm a big hairy hore!!

I am going to run an adjustable Ritchey stem as I need to break myself in gently with my back getting back to 'normal'. The flat bars will go too as I have some wiggly ones knocking about. Ritchey WCS post and 'homemade' not by me, white flite.

Next up find some brakes.

ta!

al. :D

if you have no use of the mechs i'll be glad to put them on my sunn 8)


That's a great looking bike, graphics/colourway is spot on and the flat bars suit it well.

Looks like I will be needing a shorter stem for a little while though.

Not much of an update... update.

Changed my mind and about ridged and have gone for SIDS also wiggly bar is on.

I have a box full of bits and going to build this week, just missing a RH shifter and pedals.

Avid Alixir 7's and a Ritchey comp to keep the 'cheap' build on track.

Building a cheap bike never seems to be possible, does it?

Great work. Looks spot on! Looking forward to seeing it finished.

Where did you source the decals from? I like the VeloCake decals too.
