fellow retrobike ravers,
as many others on this forum may know, building a ti bike can lead to a neurotic addiction to acquire only the best bits of bike jewellery. I myself however am on a budget diet and don't want to overspend. Especially if said parts don't actually deliver much of an upgrade in performance, ease of use or servicability.
here is what i'm thinking
seatpostclamp (must have a thomson
stem (must have a thomson x4
cables (jagwire compressionless vs supllied sram cables)
bar tape (brooks leather vs generic epa)
bottom bracket (sealed vs ceramic)
brake calipers (trp spyre vs trp spyre [carbon arm -8gr] SLC)
let me know your sorrows and suggestions!!
photos of already acquired parts coming up soon
detailed wheel build coming up later this week
