Black cranks actually work well, still miffed that the seat tube is too slack but least the Dolan can be fitted with Steamroller fork.
I think white would suit the colour and gumwalls nicely.
Yep white will look great - nice and clean
black to balance the crank?
let me know if you don't end up getting on with that stem :)
Black- white will overdo it
I went with white....
Imo it will look much better when you've tarnished the white tape.
Looks great! I agree, the white is a bit too clean at the minute.
Really tidy build. I love the range of styles people build with these frames.
Mine now has a front rack. It's not yet been levelled or tweaked, but it has been successfully used:
What rack is that? It's not one of the one of the usual suspects.
And yes. I appreciate that my bar tape need more patina.
It's the Minoura Gamoh. I bought a Metro Porteur before because it was cheap, but it wasn't going to fit without a lot of modification so I gave up on it.
I got this one on in minutes, even though I had to use the weird eyelet adaptor things and borrow a long bolt from some TT bar risers to attach it to the fork.
Snap. Although I opted for the axle(no eyelets)
Which mount is that? I am running Goldtecs which tends to make most of those kinds of things useless without owning a drill press.
Is that the chrome bag? a good trick to keep the bottom straps straps out of the way is to loop the top straps through the bottom strap ends if that makes sense?
It looks like that bracket is supposed to slot the fork leg between the two mounting points.
I'd be afraid that loading the rack would turn the bracket.
same as +tommmmmmm then in that it could rotate, just back to front and a different hole chosen fnar. I've run it like this for years on the goldsprint with no issues when loaded up, but I take your point.
mount that came with it, from memory I think I did drill it out a bit (Phil hubs)
Can restart my CP roller :)
Dug another rack and some tools from storage. Can now trim down the steel fork steerer tube.
Anyone have a steamroller fork to sell?
I've got one in Monkey Butt Red from a 2015 model. Used for about 600 miles before switching out to a carbon disc fork. Happy to take an offer as long as you're UK based @binnoboy?
Leeds based, if the steerer is long enough I'm interested.
Any more info that bike? looks ace.
I'll measure it later but it was never cut down so should be OK - it was on a 53 frame.
Responded via PM. Sounds good but please confirm the steerer tube length.
Ah shit I've got a Steamroller fork I posted about ages ago and forgot to follow up on.
It's here (shown with 700 x 40c Marathon Supreme tyre, would clear smaller easily). I think someone already shown an interest:
