rad splatter paint / badly listed pomp via ebay
How can someone take a rad painted pomp, ruin it with the choice of almost every other component, and then as the pièce de résistance, hang one of those light up scrotums on the back. Madness - someone liberate it!
I think if you're gonna have a paint job like that everything else has to be pretty understated. Its also pretty expensive, one went for £155 on ebay the other day, with much better components
Finally. Full conversion to 650B. Fun and comfy :-)
Super nice job man and a prime example of how a nice fork can transform a relatively simple frame.
Such an awesome Pomp.
Very hip hop
Powerful and horny
Anyone willing to sell a large V3 or V4 pompino frame & fork (and ship to germany)? Would be great as I regret selling mine a lot...
Looks super great! Which fork are you using?
One built by Kajak Custom. (32mm offset, 375mm A-C, originally made for an All City Big Block) - so it changes the front-end geometry quite a bit.
how BIG is the front disk?
looks huuuge! maybe cause of the 650 wheels
180 mm. Looks huge because of the wheel size I guess. Totally useless if I'm being honest (I don't go that fast and don't tackle big descents with this bike) - but it was that I had at hand at the time.
Once the rotor has worn out, I'll replace it with a 160mm.
Talk to me about the brake set up - Trp hylex? Is the one not hosed up just a donor hydro leaver or is there anyway to match leavers with something less expensive.
I've been mulling over going disc on my Capo and the hylix is high on the list, but cable would probably be much easier.
Build a new bike, I'll take that off you
Just because you keep saying it is not going to make it happen!
Well. It may do eventually
Looking good! There's definitely something about ratty Pomps
As far as I know, there is no cheap way to get a matching lever.
Mine was from a pair I bought second hand for a few quids and had a leak, so I gutted it.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
