Just followed this link from BOTM - lovely build. Nice to see another Sachs quartz build too - the Vit T is my sig has a Sachs quarz gear train - never found any Hubs unfortunately.
Nice Vit T. Certain bits of the Quarz group are rarer than hens teeth it seems (hubs and chainset in particular).
Thx a lot
Been following this too. Absolutely fantastic looking Orange. Love the colour scheme – lovely paint job. Careful use of the red bling works very nicely with the white gloss and the graphics. Good to see the Sachs components on it instead of the usual bits. Very classy by far – this should have gone in July's BoTM – gets my vote! Looks clean, uncluttered and fast – enjoy riding it!
Cheers, I did think about entering it last month but Nevadasmith's Orange Formula was always going to win that one. Wish i looked clean, uncluttered and fast to match the bike.
Is that before or after the riding?
Btw, with your Zoom seat post, are the grooves still present on the half round clamp parts? Mine have worn so smooth that I have to clamp it beyond tight, so the seat doesn't flip over speed bumps. I'm working on ideas to solve this problem. Otherwise it's going to be a devil finding another 26.8mm post.
Also, is that a propeller nose cone type object propped up in your photos?

Wanted: 26.8mm Orange or Zoom seatpost and Onza RCR 160 Bar Ends (preferably both polished silver). Oh, and an end to 'The Struggle'.
