My work bike broke so I bought a frame off ebay and started building this. No idea what it is, it's a cromo tubeset with no decals, NOS, from Bankrupt Surplus. It has canti stops so 90s vintage. A mix of bits I had lying around and budget or bargain parts off the bay. Hope to be riding it to work next week!

This is my commuter bike – 97 Xizang running Zipp 515 and an assortment of Coook Bros, Magura/Altek and XTR. Will be installing Altek lever/masters all round and braiding the lines after xmas...

Goes without saying, this is kept in the office.

My getting to work bike! I have a fairly easy commute about 5-6miles....used to riding off road more than on so needed a retro MTB style ride but with some better rubber more suited to tarmac! My first dip into this world...and its sweet! Now if I can just get those aresehole car drivers to just give me more room when they overtake me I'll be fine! Found myself f-in and blinding as a guy pulled out infront of me on a roundabout the other day and I nearly slammed into his driver door! He looked scared and then I noticed the cop car in the que behind him with 2 coppers shaking their heads and smiling at me! I always give bikers more than enough room and wait if its not possible...why can't everyone be the same! Do you WANT to kill me!
