Shogun "XOX" Alpine GT

Posted on
  • My Shogun. I've nicknamed this the "XOX" due to basing it heavily on the Bridgestone XO-1 (and Handsome Cycles already have an XOXO)

    Frame: Shogun Alpine GT "XOX" touring frame.
    Wheels: Campagnolo Gamma laced to Suntour
    Cranks: Suntour Superbe Pro
    Bars / Stem: Nitto Moustache / Nitto Technomic
    Bar End Shifter / Derailleur / Cluster: Suntour / Suntour Cyclone / Suntour Winner
    Saddle / Seat Post: Brooks B-17 Team Pro / Sugino
    Pedals: MKS Road, unknown clips, Christophe straps
    Brakes: Tektro CR720 / Dia Compe Aero levers
    Tyres: Panaracer Pasela 700 x 32c
    Bar Tape: MASH Histogram ('cause I'm still a hipster at heart)

    This took about a year to build up, no real "in progress" photos. Parts were bought from all around the world... Bars, brake calipers and tape from SF, tyres from Portland, wheels from Tasmania, cranks from Melbourne, running gear and brake levers from Queensland and the frame from New South Wales.

  • Bugger. Now you've given me ideas about what to do to my tourng frame. Nice build.

  • Oh, I forgot to add it's 1x6. It's just for cruising around town and shorter rides, so I wanted to keep it simple. No need for a big ring.

  • that look amazing, and it does indeed look like the classic Rivendell Atlantis.

    what frame size and any idea on the price? (I heard you on single ring, I used to have 44t which were perfect).

  • I'm pretty sure the frame is 57cm square, whichis a touch too big, but I really wanted a steel, lugged frame with canti bosses(which aren't that common in Australia).

    The total cost was around $500-$600AUD. Some ofthe stuff I had lying around (saddle, pedals, seat post, chain ring) and the restwas bought either when I was in the US or from The wheels andframe were from eBay though.

    Oh yeah, I'm running a 44t at the front too. Works perfectly.

  • If I were to buy this, I wouldn't mind paying £300 for it as it appear to be very well put together and make a fantastic everyday bicycle.

  • Can't help but feel that bar needs a 4 bolt stem face, if not 2.

  • Can't help but feel that bar needs a 4 bolt stem face, if not 2.

    Why's that? It's running a Nitto Technomic which matches perfectly with the Nitto Moustache bars. I like the way they look together.

    Also, I don't plan to swap the bars out anyway... screwing around with canti's is a pain in the arse.
