I missed that bike but you build it up perfectly.
Any idea what bike frame manufacturers use frame number AS8100? I'm not sure if it's full number, picture is terrible.
What rack is this?
How's handling with that half a meter stem?
Bike looks very good by the way
Handling is great. 140mm is long but with swept bars its nice. No need for this but nearly put a bid in last week.
I'm in the process of upgrading my Canyon Dude (more on that to come). Whilst looking for parts, I came across a guy who is selling a Miranda infinium crankset, which he thinks is a fat bike crank (becauce the axle is way to long for his mountainbike apparently). Unfortunately he doesn't have any more info on it.
Is it possible to tell what kind of BB / rear hub setup this crank is right for? My Dude has a PF121 bb and a 190mm rear hub. From what I've (and don't quite understand yet), that information is rather essential.
I have messaged Orlowski about getting a replica Steamroller fork built with a disc tab.
Ideally I want to swap out the wheelset for a 650b one, fixed gear rear and disc front hub. Does anyone have recomendations for a disc, gravel SS/fixed 650b wheelset? Preferably around the £200 mark
Did you consider a 650b straggler fork?
I actually have a 700cc Straggler fork I need to offload as I never fitted it and won't. Ideally I want a replica of the Steamroller fork. It is 5mm shorter than the Straggler and has 38mm rake as opposed to 44mm.
Thinking the wheelset may have to be custom. Hub/rim recommendations welcome.
Fair enough on the geo
These are £8, they could be a starting point
Yeah although I am debating when 5mm of height and 6mm of rake difference is going to affect the feel that much if I am changing the wheelset.
Orlowski are 160 euros and will be Reynolds, so about £145 plus shipping, while Triton are doing the Straggler for £117 plus postage. It would be nice to have an Orlowski fork and it should be better and lighter.
those rims look like a flipping bargain
Maybe ask if omnium still sells the omnium cxc SHORT fork separately: 370mm/38mm IS mounts
5mm shorter and an fractionally less clearance, good option. Very nice looking bikes
Same discussion 7 months ago :)
And I have little doubt there will be many more, until Surly pull their finger out and make a disc for for the Steamroller. I have emailed them to ask.
[Edit] flipping heck, £78 plus shipping
My phone camera is shite. No idea why it looks like this, but hey. Anyway:
Road/touring/gravel rig gets a massive upgrade. 48cm nitto m177 courtesy of @ted1992 and also with thanks to @Hulsroy because he stepped down from his dibs when he realised how much I wanted these bars, and withdrew so I could get them, which is proper good behaviour. So cheers again!
(Better bartape to come)
If anyone does want the CXC fork you can buy one here:
looks like a pf121 crankset
Anyone know why this lo-pro frame is routed twice for one cable and two holes? There is only one entry hole up the down tube.
The smaller hole on the bb shell might be for drainage?
I doubt its that tbh. It aligns the cable better than the larger hole and its not on the underside of the bb which would be a more effective place to put a hole
Has anybody used Panasonic T-Serv tires? What do you think of them?
It's for a front mech obvs, you can see where a front mech cable ran round the BB shell.
