You've got some poo on your crank arm
I went full prolly with foreground bokeh
Sadly in Bromley not So-Cal.
How did you make such a nice frame look so shit?
@PhilDAS tiny leaf
Funny you should mention it - when I built it up I based it on an old fit which was built around a pretty relaxed position (ie a few spacers) but lately I've been considering moving the saddle forward as I've been moving towards the nose more than I probably should on a short saddle. Still find it very comfortable so haven't dared opening the can of worm that is changing the one element in the fit equation yet...!
P.S. good luck stopping on that thing ;-)
its the fork
Ha! Took the photo on a recent new wheels day and thought I'd be thorough with the changing and cleaning of pads/holders 🙂
sram, moots & leaves
Got my Rock Lobster Team Ti up and running finally, switched out the fork and stem and feels so much better.
Whoa. How long is that fork? Looks big for a bike of that vintage.
Rock lobster is grrrrreat
The fork has 3 settings, 100mm, 120 and 140. I was running it 140mm on my San Andreas but on the lobster it felt best at 120mm. Tried a rigid before Xmas (see pic) but just didn’t feel right off road. The pics above are at the 140mm setting
Hi all - I’m looking for a -17 ti stem for this, anyone got one they’d sell or swap?
Also looking for a ti king cage if anyone has a spare?
(For some reason the bike looks like it’s going uphill in the photo...)
Fork does look very long but if it feels good...
Length for sure looks better though. Regardless, lovely frame.
@mattyc - looks so proper. Ano archetypes look great.
Needs popping colour headset though I feel!
Thank you. Pretty happy with the CC110 tbh. Don't love colourful headsets, especially when I have black hubs. Prefer to keep things understated and not too flashy.
Impressed with mudguard setup, I never thought it would fit.
Yellow tyre - shame on you
Yeah I know, the tyres are the only ‘winter’ 23c I have, they are temporary - in fact I’m changing them today and swapping in some 25c pave, the only acceptable coloured tyres!
With a steal fork I’m sure I can fit my 37mm radial guards with 30mm tyres... but that’s for later
While I’m here do you have a -17 ti stem spare?
First ride on this today, needs the dropper post installed, and bars rotating a bit, but man, the pinion is amazing.
Here's my lockdown project. Genesis Volare 953 stainless, ex team frame from 2015. I'd planned to build it up with Athena, but it came with a complete Di2 wiring loom included, so I built it up with budget DA. Weighs about 7.6kg as shown.
Photos not working for me. Anyone else having the same issue?
