That's brake outer, didn't spot matching gear outer on their page either :/
The next project is on the operating table at Dr. @Hulsroy
Univega touring bike that'll become the everyday do-it-all
It is fucking shit! I hate bikes
What's he doing? I forgotten about this, didn't realise it had a third cage
He's removing the BB. But it's probably threaded in from the wrong side as the fixed cup is on the non-drive side. The operation failed and the frame is now put in storage.
Christmas is here, so the commuter can be put out of service. Stripped the whole thing and put on a Ritchey 1 1/8" fork, Sram S900 cranks, a pair of Ryde Edge 22 on Formula SS hubs wit Vittoria Terreno Mix tubeless tyres and some Rival brakes and levers. Drilled a drain hole in the BB shell and chased the threads. Levers obviously need to go up and the bars down, but they were already taped so I'll wait until I have the missing bits.
The old forks weigh 940 grams and the new Ritchey ones weigh 450 grams uncut. The frame is still around 2,3 kg...
Looks fun. What will take it's place on the commute?
The plan was for the Univega touring bike, but the BB is stuck. I'll build up the 26" Marin I fettled with earlier. Just need some rims and spokes.
Are they silver omniums and are they spare now?
Yes and maybe 😬
Hit me up if you want to liquidate those assets
Go full match
I need 19.5cm visible seatpost and the ITM one from @Hulsroy is 20cm in total 🙄 Would also prefer a horizontal stem and that one looks suspiciously like one with some rise that's been photographed from odd angles to hide that fact?
The still undefeated Super Heavyweight Bottom Bracket Champion of the World: @Hulsroy
Victory at last!
We fucked up the threads in the drive side, 'cause I wasn't patient enough. The BB was stuck and the fixed cup was NDS. I assumed the BB was threaded in from the wrong side, which it turned out it wasn't. I made Mads fuck up the DS thread with a hole saw instead of sorting the fixed cup side first, which in hindsight was really stupid, but such is life. I'll give it a non-threaded BB and that'll probably work fine.
A bit of welding and 130 kgs of leverage will make short work of most stuck BBs
Ha its like the sword in the stone
