Delving deeper into the world of fixed and after buying my Moser Pista, I have decided to try and build something nice with Japanese parts this time.
Frame =No idea at the moment.
(I do like a Nagasawa, 3rensho, Kalavinka, Samson)
Group set = DA 10 pitch.
Wheels =Undecided but likely to be Araya.
H/S = DA probably 7200.
Stem= DA of some kind, probably 7200.
Seat post =Again DA probably 7200.
Pedals - DA and probably 7400 track.
This gunna be good
Any suggestions /things to avoid /recommendations gladly received as always.
Ah u found a 10pitch group? Nice!
@MCamb Yes mate, with a full set of tools as well.
Stunning, Such a good find. Love classic / old timey tools
Wow mate u hit the jackpot there. How about an Umezawa to put it onto ;)?
Thanks, I'm very happy with it.
I bought it on here.
I like your frame but it's too big for me.
No worries man :) hope u find something deserving of the GS, it's truly stunning!
Oh snap, even the tools!
The wheels are going to have to be Araya IMHO and after doing a bit of research, the three contenders are -
Araya 16b, Araya Super Aero SA30 and the modern version SA730.
Anyone have experience of these rims ?
Of course it may all depend on the frame which is yet to be found.
with that group set you are well along the 10 pitch "road to madness" !
I will be interested to see how this comes along...
I have SA-730's on my Samson and Araya Golds on my Nagasawa for track. (not updated Photos yet)
Full builds: Here
They both fit HOSHI Keirin stainless double butted racing spokes on Dura Ace HB-7600 32hole & 36hole.
-If you are planning on riding on the streets i would recommend SA730. They fit clincher tyres, and can handle more bumps and bangs on the road, and have a flat braking surface. I love mine
-Araya Super Aero SA30 defiantly give swag points for being the vintage version.
-Where as Araya Golds are better rims and a lot lighter but they take tubular tyres, which can be a pain changing at the side of the road.
If your looking for a seat post:
Thanks for the information on the rims.
Seat post, I will pass on as I think it will have to be DA.
Anyone tried Araya Rc-540 rims?
