hi forum friends. Anyone got any idea where i can get off the shelf single speed wheels with a 135 OLD to fit my 135 OLD baby blue Pompino? Currently running miche pista track wheels with 130 axle that barely fits in but could do with a spare set. Failing that regular cassette wheel(s) that I can convert to single speed.
Oh, and ideally tubeless ready, fixing puncture with track bolts can be such a faff
Few xl Bootzipper frame only currently on for £95
Just under £150 w/ forks.
So glad that’s not a large... wallet happy.
29'er frame is 199 pounds frame + fork + thru axles. Stupid to think I could finish a build for cheaper than the 29'er sram sx PX have for 699 pounds?
Or even the £599 one.
Would be good value if headset and seatpost included.
20% off with SPRINGFWD20
£76 for the frame. Darn why can I not grow a few more inches?!
Stripping this down today.
Hammerite for the rack and geekhouse salmon pink for the frame.
Brazing by @PhilDAS, I wanted a rack for bikepacking that could take panniers and bottle cage mounts. And Phil exceeded expectations, I particularly like the 'mono' attachment. Excited to get out of town on this properly at some point
That is cool as fuck.
Both the monostay and the lower mountings look ace.
@PhilDAS this is some proper cool stuff. Nice!
Thanks boss. It’s a bit rough but seems strong enough and isn’t too heavy.
Chainstay bosses double as extra bottle cage mounts when the rack’s off, as long as there’s sufficient heel clearance
nice work @PhilDAS
I am not the one to dish out complements that easily
now make a rack for DBAD
That is excellent.
Great work @PhilDAS proper details.
So excellent! The pink and red play together nicely.
Super nice custom rack and mounts.
Thanks that was coincidence, the only colour of hammerite that I had.
However the hammerite isn't great, it's like a crayon and scraping off already. Does anyone know what that could be?
Did you degrease the surface before applying ? The metal looks new and it may have oil residue on it to prevent rusting.
You only painted it the other day, give it a minute!
Seriously though, I have a hammerite paintjob on my klunker that's still soft after about 3 months!
Yes I did and scratched it with scotchbrite
@M_V ha good point, I'll give it some time
Just noticed this. Winner. Black too, £39.99. Middle finger to crust bikes...
