  • let's check 'em...

    4 weeks old, £500 build, really happy except the paint is shit, comes off at slightest knock.

    what are yours like?

  • I'll tell you next weekend, when more parts show up! Build is currently at £235, as I'm transposing some parts from another bike.

  • Paint is poo? Under what type of use? I was looking at a Pomp f&f after I build a beater for work.

  • Dunno how much I spent on it but not a lot - most bits I had lying around.

  • still waiting for bars and stem in the mail...takes forever...cant wait to start the build...

  • Polo rig...

  • £500 build

    Josh, How did you spend £500 building a Pompino?

  • taxi, that's amazing!

    i'm building up a pompino as bit of a super commuter and yours is pretty much how i'd like mine to look when it's finished with the addition of mudguards and a rear rack.

    do you mind if i ask what crankset you're using?

  • do you know how big the pompino frames goes up to? Could be a cheap build for next project.

    courier, locking up a lot rather harshly. my steamroller's paint was fine tho, for half the price, something's got to give

    Furry muff, just seemed alot for such a cheap frame set.

  • XL frame, Open Pro on Goldtec wheels, Sugino 75 crankset, Thomson post and X2 stem, Burgtec pedals, Avid Ti V-brakes, Salsa Lip-Lock, Chris King headset, Ringle bottle cage, etc etc.

  • do you know how big the pompino frames goes up to? Could be a cheap build for next project.

    XL frame suits someone up to about my height, 6ft4.

  • @Taxi who did the paint job on your frame?

  • The paint is definitely an area that was compromised to get the price down. The one I had was very thin (noticeably thinner in some areas)

  • Headset, bottom bracket and seat clamp arrived today. Just waiting for levers, brakes and cables. Hopefully tomorrow...

  • I want an old blue one..=[

  • They sometimes come up for sale on eBay so check there.

  • There's been a few on the classifieds in the last month or so. They crop up every now and then.

  • Before...

    After (rebuilding it properly - BB, chainline, wheels/freewheel). The Colo*u*r And The Shape...

    FF (Fixed; Free) ;-)

    Anyone got any spare forks - 1" steerer, 185mm or longer...??? Still searching.

  • ^^ Nice!

    @gxbW12 Who did your paint job?

  • I'm having issues getting my head around chainline... Is the BB axle length related to the cranks alone? for instance, I'm going to be using Sugino RD messengers, and I've read they go with a 103mm BB. Is that it? Or do I need to start worrying about my hub and it's measurements?

  • The 103mm BB length for the messengers will be associated with a partciular chainline (typically 42mm for fixed hubs). You need to match the chainline at the cranks with the chainline at the hub.

    Sheldon is good value here
