    yup. is ok. General do it all frame. Space for 37mm tires. 32mm with mudguards. double eyelets at front end for mudguards and racks, single at rear drop.


    my cross set up for last autumn.

    Done two helsinki winters with mine.

    just to make a note that i work at pelago, but nevertheless a good frame set.

    I guess the rest of the finns can add more photos if anyone interested. canna bother just now.

    Are those the original forks? I really like it, other than the shape of the bars.

    Nope. Forks were colnago stickered ones, but pretty sure they arent colnago either. Very similar to what numerius has on his flickr atm.

    Yep, the bars dont look that good in the picture and they felt a bit long also. And the stems abit long too.

    Shit mobile photo.
    Rode it this week. Feels a bit long, so ill have to check how much setback the post has. Kindof looks like it needs more silver parts. Ive got a silver integralter i could try but i really hate the cable routing and atleast the last time i had it on a bike, it was a horrible job to get the brake cable routings to work...
    I dont think the blue fork looks that much off to the decal blue. I think ill also try a red slr with silver post.
    Everything works fine except the cable routing around the headtube area is a mess. bad crossings with brake and gear cables.

    sooo, i got the wheels sorted now. Took the front wheel to work and checked the rim width. -24mm.

    Duranos also seem slimmer than what they are marked as, so i might try some other road tyres later on. Any suggestions for 25mm wide road tyres?
    I might service the front hub also as i rode it winter time. Atleast outwards it doesnt look too good.

    Theres also a problem.
    Cable routing is for left rear, right front instead of the right, european way. Top tube routing for the rear goes in on the right side instead of left. The rear brake cable doesnt really seem to go nicely so i might need to make some special/additional loop of cabling or smthng to make it go nicely...

    Im really looking forward to see this ready also. Apparently the last parts were shipped today so should be in finland by wednesday...

    Wheels will be off my gt. 6600 hubs i got from an old friend when i lived in scotland and rims i got from my boss last autumn to test out. Outside profile is bit over 23 or 24mm wide so i wont be riding anything smaller than 25s. The gt is getting a period correct wheelset and one step closer to being ready. tricolor x cxp12.

    Im actually building the caygill, cause i dont want to use the gt too much. Everything works perfect on it, but im afraid it wont much longer... -Old parts etc.
