Can never quite make my mind up....
Yeah I quickly looked up and found the build thread and was frankly shocked at how aggressive the response to a few simple bits of very obvious advice was.....
.....poor kid mustn't have seen many bikes before.
Can't tell if troll.....
Don't remember it having almost 59cm of seat tube!! Would have been miles too big for me!
It's not a 56 - it's a 54 and the same size and geo as the 54 cannondale track I had - both of which had HEAPS of seatpost out as I usually ride a 56
All about direct mounting your stem on the bearings - your back, neck and shoulders will love you!
As re:tubes - I just use Specialized Turbo Tubes, but only cos they're the lightest tubes that the shop I work in stocks, used in combination with some nice Veloflex or Vittoria with a full cotton casing of anything above 300TPI and you're not far off the feeling of Tubs.
Il bring you some down when I meet you for the bonts so you can give them a go - how deep is your rim (lol)?
(Apologies @Fignon that sounded needlessly aggressive and wasn't intended to be!)
Yup - real good stuff!
Il give you a better idea of exactly how sick that looks without the stupid star spangled banner bollocks:
And on the drive side
And with shimano
Shit - ive wanted one of these for some time - if it was just two months later down the line......
