Christ, that looks good, why you painting it again?

Are those lime green 'zochis, because they look gold in the photo, which does go with the frame. Respray the forks sez I.


Managed to miss this post. The respray is due to most of the paint removing itself on its own, it's like a bike with male pattern baldness.

The forks are a very weird yellowy, greeny, gold sort of colour. The kind of colour that goes with nothing.


those forks go with these > http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=132592

I'm strangely enjoying building my 'Lardtail' :lol:

I'm building it real slow, tweaking wee bits at a time.

Today I aligned my wheels a wee bit better by some subtle filing of the dropouts. Tomorrow I need to tweak some spokes on the rear wheel, only high end bit on the bike, my ENO hubbed wheel.

Slightly, well OK majorly stuffed up my Emmelle stickers purchase. I didn't pay attention to their size, they're actually the wee ones for the chain/seat stays, put them on the frame main tubes anyway, go for the subtle look :lol:

You'll see the Lardtail at Dunkers and not before probably because I'll not get it finished untill then :roll:

I was stuck in the house and the match was cancelled so I did a bit of internet window shopping. I haven't managed to find any pedals heavier than the ones I have for the bike.

Sound like they could be perfect for the lardtail :D

Has anyone used a Hope Hed Doctor before? I'm considering using one to cut down on farting around with star nuts as I need to cut a wee bit of steerer and hate fitting them. Seems like a good solution but if they're that good why doesn't every one use them?
