Are you going to use a Klein BB?


I will be yes, just need to sort a crank set before I decide on an axle length :-)

Looking good mate. Coming a long nicely.

Those wheels look lush.

What other red ano bits are you going to go for?


They are lovely wheel set for sure.
I'm was thinking brakes etc, but its proving difficult to find what I want, and I'm not exactly a patient person lol :-)

Not into the yellow, with a blank canvas so much more could have been done. :(
Thanks Niall, you've ruined my life.

Well bugger me, got an update on this after almost a whole year!

Finally got the headset cup/reducers sorted.

Also played about with the forks by adding a carbon "shock-bone" arch brace.

Got a side shot showing the much better head angle with the new headset reducer cups, before they were twice the thickness jacking the front up way high.

Image

Considering skinny road tyres and single speed for a bit, but probably go back to knobly's at some point.
