I'm thinking about building up a Pre Cursa frame from bits I've got lying around plus. Risers, low profile wheels plus some skinny steel forks from on here. Might end up looking shit.
@Rodolfo I think built one with a steamroller fork and it was pretty nice. Post up the results!
Any recommendations for a frame or eventually a frameset at similar price range as Pre Cursa? I want to build a budget fixie until before season finishes. I had a Pre Cursa once and want something different now.
This think is a pretty perfect distillation. I'd ride it if I didn't live in Seattle.
How big is the difference in rear clearance on a 52 and a 54 pre-cursa? I had what I'm pretty sure was a 35c in the back of my 54 and a friend is struggling to get a 28c in his 52, has anyone else found this?
That is like 4x the cost of a pre-cursa?
Whose side are you on?
strongly agree SBC Cycles are awesome, esp for wheelbuilding
5 shops (in no particular order) I'll go to Seabass, Bikefix, SBC, Brixton Cycles and BikeWorks
How far forward in the dropouts is the wheel? Clearance issues usually with the bridge between the seat stays and moving back in the dropouts sorts it. May need a longer chain.
Yeah he reckons he's done the usual tinkering, I need to take a look at it
