new direction for the bike. as it stands i dont want to ride it as i fear for the tyres and the cranks. my mate is doing me a HUGE favour and he loves this bike so i am altering it for him to ride untill he sorts himself something out.
he's into coloured tyres so i have stuck a set of kenda grey psycho copies on the campag rims. replaced the bottom bracket for something narrower and stuck the original compact cranks back on. middle and outer rings are middleburn. middle was red annodised but i removed that with drain cleaner. it went black but i have left it as is rather than polishing it off.
next change is likely to be a shorter stem and different bars depending on how he finds it as it is. oh and a decent pair o pedals.
i am contemplating swapping the wheels too. these are just too beautiful for him to wreck and i need the hubs for my khs montana pro.
i have the original wheels for this so might stick them back in but they are pretty heavy.
anywhere, here's the (late night camera phone)pic...
