  • Nice! I'm literally building up one of these as we speak with Force/Red. Its a 126 rear spacing so did you cold set it or just squeeze the wheel in? Havent seen another of these despite looking for a while, lovely frames!

  • Yes it’s such a good frame, very light and really nice to ride. 130mm rear wheel went in very easily - I have built quite a few old frames with new wheels and haven’t had any problems. Sometimes need to gently pull the dropouts apart to pop the wheel in - couple of mm each side is no big deal. I’ve never needed to cold set. Give a shout if you have any problems!

  • Love that. Just right.

  • Uhhh that's quite nice that

  • Awesome picture Gaston!

  • Petition to ban bikes with quill stem adapters from this thread.

  • wish I still had my old winter bike

  • I've got an ultegra groupset spare and am eyeing up some retro frames. In terms of the build, what's the deal with the BB, will modern ones fit or am I looking for some sort of convertor? I know it depends on the frameset but.. in general

  • Threaded bb cups are readily available - just get the right one for your frame (ital / bsa) and your crank. Gxp, ht2, square taper etc!
