Yes 6 years but now a new crankset and not realy, frame is NOS
off with basket and chinlli pepper bars . Gone over to dropbars and a matching rear brake.
Going to miss overtaking the carbon bike boy in Richmond park on my commuter to work with my basket on the front 🤣
Great to see another Herne Hill Harry O still going strong...
Here's my old one
That's great! Any idea what the stem is?
I think you friendd popped by and placed an order for some wheels!
Was busy with another customer hence my colleague dealt with her.
Pretty happy with how this has turned out. Just waiting on bar tape to arrive and still looking for another 130-140mm stem to finish.
Kind of finished for now. Never owned a 29er before but I must say it's really nice in soft sand and on rough tracks
Tidied up the cable route using a p-clip and a butchered adapter for running hydraulic brake hose on a frame designed for cables. Hopefully the p-clip will hold.
New saddle on the fixie skiddr.
Saddle position is giving me anxiety though.
Really good but yeah, slide that saddle forwards a little bit please!
Everytime I see this frame I get jealous
@Tijs @ltc Well within the saddle rail limits. Think Ariones are quite long so they give the appearance they're far back/forward.
Damn y'all with your amazing fixed gears, now I want to build one again...
I'll think you'll find that lufguss conjecture trumps real world experience. Sort it out.
Sorry boss, will do better next time :(
Very tidy! What tubeset?
Columbus SL, thanks to a few forumongers for helping to identify it.
I really like this
Advice on build please / stem!
I guess by nature this bike is kind of flexy (I'm 6'3" and about 90-95KG of pure beer and pizza :/ ) I find it a bit noodley but would a new stem be stiffer and firm up the front a bit? Nitto ? - or is it ultimately the wrong frameset for that sort of ride? my Pre cursa felt a lot more nippy at the lights/ on climbs, but this is a lot more comfy over distance.
(Excuse the old saddle!)
Nice bike !
It's a very big bike and it's made out of old thin steel tubes (i assume). I'm not sure a different stem would make much difference. Perhaps a more modern steel bike with 1 1/8 inch headtube and larger tubing would be a better compromise between stiff and comfortable?
What size is it by the way?
