Oof, making me excited for my Volare coming!
New Burls ti road bike on the way!
noice - just did 170K (with 2500m vertical) on this bad boy which has just had a service (does that qualify it for CP?) love this bike
Finished one of my lockdown projects, which Ive been working on for the last 8 months - New GF bike. Started life as a genesis borough bridge, I ended up replacing everything exceptr the handbars, seatpost clamp & rear rack (even the forks, new ones are from a Masi Rando).
I had a load of bits hanging about from my old bike, but still took me a while to get the rest togther, my fav highlights include:
She seems pleased, which is great, becuase I really am - its actually a delight to ride.
That’s a beaut, must be a bit of a relief that she’s pleased as well : )
So clean and tidy - full of carefully considered decent quality details.

struggling to keep track and would help a lot
would also accept a pdf
Speaking of which, can anyone think of any good CP threads of the obligatory rigid 90s 26ers that have been converted to disc brakes? @t0-ster I'm looking at you :-)
Handwritten on engineering paper pls.

Thanks, @SideshowBob. The frame was high on my wanted list and a couple of weeks ago, I got this one as a gift from someone on the RB-forum. It's a 1991 frame so this bike fits my 30 th anniversary collection (I'm older but I started biking 30 years ago ;-)).

Waste of time talking with you as you're set in your ways. Lower pressures result in lower rolling resistance and greater comfort = faster. Learn it.
Yes I was running those pressures 15-20 years ago. Probably before you were born, too.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
