took it down to the garage today to size it up against the lava dome and adjust fit

by eye, i had it pretty spot on - it also gave me an excuse for this gratuitous bike-on-bike shot

Do let me know when you do - I may be interested in having it back... ;)

Oh, I've got an identical Velocity stem but without the cable router if you're interested? Might make it look a bit tidier, if you see what I mean...

build is "on the cheap" for now.... but all my builds start that way, using what i have lying around. if i fancy a change i'll hit you up :)


the lava dome started on-the-cheap and now has a curve/middleburn/pace chainset and avid arch rival V's

this evening = fitting brakes, respacing rear hub and then she's ready for the onerous duty of carrying me the ten miles each way to work on nice days and putting in fitness miles.

Incase anyone is confused, this is the bike in question stinking my house out in the peaks with a shattered rear mech and missing jockey wheels...

bars are now lower. thumbies will be going on, along with some purple chainring bolts, and possibly crank bolts. polishing on the forks needs a lot of buffing to keep me happy, so i think mr plasti-kote may be coming to town

at some point i am going to re-spin it as a mountain SS, but that's a while away yet.
