Couple of more pictures added. It's done soon and ready to be punished in the mud.

Since last time: Added Ringlé Ti Stix skewers, Selle Italite Flite TT sadddle, Controltech barends and handlebars.

A good dude who's helping me with this build noticed that the left crank arm is defect. The octalink aluminium thread in the arm is screwed, so even though how much the arm is tightened, it's still possible to move it.

So gotta get a new arm. Also need a new casette and a new chain. And might need a new big chainring. The drive is sooo bad, but if i get new components then hopefully it will run smooth as butter.

That was all for now. I'll be back with outside shots whenever it's done

Best

That looks nice :D

Do you get issues with the Fox rebound adjuster hitting the cable guides at all on the downtube? On mine I can't wind the adjuster out fully to get the rebound quicker which is a pain and that's even with a Cane Creek headset with a really tall lower cup!

Hmm thats strange? Could you maybe do a closeup picture? I don't have any issues adjusting the rebound here. But let me see a picture :)

Mine catches on the cable stops on the downtube if wound out too much...bit of an arse really

TBH your stops may be welded on further down the tube which means there's no clash going on!

I delivered the bike to him yesterday. But he was quite busy so he'll fix it sooner or later. I will bring it to blaagardsgade as soon as he's done and i have a new casette. Then we're almost ready ;)
