sadly the Marin Bear valley is still sitting outside, but i've been given this Airborne Blackbird.
unfortunately it's when i never seem to have mucho cash, so i'm desperately going to build it on a strict budget and the items must be black
I've set a £100 budget and from that so far i have:
front and rear brakes
richey bars - decribed as used..but look new
Shimano rs10 wheels and tyres from the forum (dans)
i have £25 left to spend and i need:
cranks (might be able to pick some up FOC, have my eye on some, might cost me a favour though)
single speed conversion kit
pedals =- spd hopefully
and then try and find the time to ride it!
The recessed brake fitting is very tight into the front carbon fork. It will go but I don't think it should be that tight. Can you get different diameter fitting?. The back brake is fine
As it is so far
sorry i know this has been more than a year, just wanted to know if you have any idea where i can order a new rear derailleur hanger? thanks
Three years it's taken me to build it and I just topped out over £100.....excluding frame. Bugger what have I been dping in three years, nothing it looks like.
@user76651 got mine from ebay.
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.
