Wanted: Front brake stuff and seatpost

  • Coming to the end of building my 1st fixed..

    Got most of the bits i need but still looking for a decent front brake and minimal lever.

    I'm also looking for a seatpost but not sure exactly what size i need, 28mm sound right?

  • powder coated hubs ? nice build man :)

  • thanks, got he wheelset shipped over from america, you can't quite see from the photo but those deep v's are woodgrain..

  • how much were the wheels in total with P&P included?

    halo's ?

    now you need wood-grain bars and lever to finish it off.

  • that looks like a cinelli bb shell, what's the frame?

  • MAKE YOUR OWN WOODEN BAR!!!

    get some wood and sand it down!
    i BEG you to do it, it would be so good, just buy a strip of old solid wood, maple?
    then sit at home with a brew and a sheet of sand paper and sand her down!

  • Looking good - any idea who made the frame?

    By the looks of it I'd say it's more likely that the seat tube is 27.2 mm in diameter so you'll need a 27.2 seatpost. You can measure this yourself though, just measure the inside of the seatpost across the middle. I've got a seatpost that would fit that but another forum member (whatamidoing) has it at the moment.

  • Wow, a mere 10 posts and straight in with a lovely slice of London Slave ;P

    Nice.

    Just ghetto broom it.

  • wooden rims..........don't get 'em wet man..... they swell :)

  • how much were the wheels in total with P&P included?

    Can't remember exactly but i do remember the extra £50 charge i had to pay once they got to the parcelforce depot.

    I got them here, loads of decent (i hope) wheelsets prety cheap.

    not too sure what the hubs are, but they are exactly the same as some i got from st john street cyles for £40, just in white.

    As for the wooden bars, maybe for some photos but i dont reall fancy wrapping my face around stem..

    Nice.

    Cheers, wouldnt have got this far without all the stuff i've read on this site though.

    yeah, the bb shell is cineli but i wish i new more about the frame. I'll put up some more detailed photos soon.

    It's got "LP" on each shoulder of the forks. and "L.P PIRON" stamped on the chainstay. the guy i bought it off seems to think it's columbus tubing.
