Nice one felix! (same colors as my marino)
get a road derailler, they are smaller and less probabilty to break it

I'd say get a short cage mtb derailler before a road one, might be a bit bulkier but they're made to take hits no?

Yeah, saint short cage ones are pretty small for using 1 ring up front. I'd guess they're pretty tough too.

It is a short cage, sora. And pretty cheap so I'm not too worried.

Made this this this week, the most ridiculous bike I've ever ridden.
-1:1 gearing, cut down headtube, straightened forks,145mm cranks, bars that are far too small, extended dropouts, 48h sputniks.
but its fun/incredibly scary to ride.

It's like throwing up a little bit of something really tasty into your mouth. Beautiful and disgusting at the same time.

I swear I had not seen it before (my frame was ordered a month ago) - but the similarity is uncanny!!

^I'll take that as a compliment :) miss you buddy

...and yes, the club roost I beam stem is awesome! It was bought of an old skool mountain biker at work for a fiver. Love it, just the right amount of reach and rise.

I've dropped the stem height now and the weight distribution is spot on. Everyone who rides it thinks its the bees knees. Very pleased. Now all I need to do is get good at polo...
