  • my dolan seta is still a current project, waiting for new parts to bring the weight under 6.6kg. i know it would be easy to go under 6, but there are parts which i won't change.

  • Like the saddle you mean?

    Fair enough, very personal choice those are.

  • Aren't those counter bores to relieve stress on the bend of the spoke?

    No, they are not bell-mouth holes as you would make them to support the spoke bend, they are actual counterbores sized and shaped to accommodate the spoke head. Some pictures on the internet seem to show the large flange C-Record road hubs with counterbores on all the holes, but mine are definitely on alternate holes which, given the 1/2 spoke offset from one side to another, makes them 'handed'

  • Made a few boring changes to my Gazelle, including the crank set, bottom bracket, saddle, bar tape, straps, saddle bag, mudguard and new kicks, which actually match loads of stuff, never meant them to.

    I got a ride on Sunday and it might rain, so bodged on a mudguard and got a huge saddle bag with room for a thin jacket

    Tyres look good. Michelin Dynamics? Shame you changed the original crank, why was that, for lower gearing? Other than the modern saddle and the extra's it's looking pretty good. Glad you changed the hoods and tape for black, looks much better than the white I had on it.

  • Haha are they Adidas Gazelles?

  • Changed saddle to Ti SLR and got some nice blue Fizik Microtex. That is all.

  • anyone use this front DR clamp?

    £5.99 at evans, otherwise any suggestions for value for money alternatives?

  • That one is fine.
    Shimano, SRAM and Campag all make their own if you want to match to groupset.

    It's in long distance/practical mode at the moment, well long distance for me anyway

    Tyres are Panaracer pasela (awesome tyres), i did change the crankset so i could get a lower gearing, glad i did as well, still got the original ones in my shed, the Rolls saddle will be going back on tomorrow.

    Haha are they Adidas Gazelles?

    I wish, i really wanted some, but i ended up having to settle for ones called Elridge, similar to Samba's

  • All pantos done and for a grand total of £6
    My eyes hurt though

    is it compatible with all sorts of mechs ? (ultegra triple to be precise)

  • Yes, road FD hangers are universal, haven't changed in decades.

  • Few bits need adding (such as a new saddle). Fun bike and a really nice ride. This will eventually turn into my Time Trail bike for 2012.

    Seat tube angle is extra steep now too, how does this ride?

  • my brooklyn:




  • liking it

  • Sweet!

    What are those bars, some fair old rise on them...

  • octane one from crc, 3". A bit too high for the front end. Going something like 2" when I find some nice ones.

  • when i sell my plastic planet x nanolight with chorus 11 groupset later this year..
    i'm getting something like this from Daniel Merenyi, time to go back to steel methinks

    apparently the text on the seat stay is all about opportunities and drinking

  • I saw and loved that frame at bespoked, it just looked fabulous.

  • the photo doesn't do it justice.. always fancied a colnago..
    but the Bel Canto Pista looks very special
    suspect he'll do limited paint jobs

  • negaatio-thats my favourite gangsta ever! Don't ever do the skinny tyres and drops on it, that always looks utter shite.

  • ^^^^ Vewy nice!!

  • octane one from crc, 3". A bit too high for the front end. Going something like 2" when I find some nice ones.

    try velosolo. I love em

  • This will probably be for sale soon for about £500 without wheels.

    The top tube is just too long for me. 59cm top tube, 58 seat tube

  • This looks like heaps of fun. It's the long version right?
