  • Progress. Not enough progress tough, as some tools didn't arrive in time...

  • Almost there! Needs some visual tweaking, chainring swapping and it cries for the new tyres...
    Handling's wonky, but braking's as great as on the Marin, and it generally feels pretty comfy. And holy shit it looks so bad!

  • Yes!

  • very nice

  • As of today, after over 2 months of wankery, caused by things beyond my reach, it is finally done (for now). It feels fantastic to ride something that was basically condemned.

  • Very nice (except from that stem...).

  • Yeah, adaptors suck, but this was the best (and cheapest) solution for this one. :)

  • Really nice. geo looks proper slack, how's the handling?

  • I have a cheap 1" steep mtb stem (tioga T bone), if you want it, send me a pm.

  • Greatly appreciate the offer, but I wanted to go 31.8 route this time for more (and cheaper) bar options. :) I have a few potentially good stems as well.

    Didn't have a shot to give it a proper off-road blast yet, but the handling seems great so far on tarmac!

  • So, apparently the Bianchi will get a fixed rear wheel... I miss skidding around.
