Thats some serious dedication there. Nice.

When you find the ti/carbon version, it'll be a simple parts swap!


Thanks, I´m glad you like it, but yours is simply perfect!!

wow that is a gorgeous bike.

I have one of those tioga front hubs that I am trying to get built up, but I'm having trouble calculating the spoke length.

Can you tell me what spoke length you used please? Thank You


No problem I´ll send you a pm.

I have only just picked up on this thread - can't believe I missed it all this time. WOW!!!

Is that really my old Torus frame??

It looks superb, and I'm happy it went to the right home. Well done.

Well I found here this Tioga Disk Drive Pro Nos a few days ago... (Thanks Ian)
Image

So I finally decide to build it up includding a XTR M900 rear hub and lacing it to a Nos Mavic M231cd...

Image

Now this is what I have....

Image
Image

These are the tension sheets. It´s really curious cause they are for 32 holes instead of 36!!

Image

So, as I told you, I finally decide to build it up. Here are some pics...
Image

Screw lock to ensure the bolts...

I´ll send you some pics soon showing the full wheel. I hope you all like it!

Nice work, Daniel! How did it work out since the disk was for 32 holes but the rim was 36 holes (or did I misread your earlier post)?
