You can't just make statements like this and then not follow up!
I have been working on eliminating the use of printed paper templates for mitres.
This means building fixtures and yesterday I finally got around to making one for classic seatstays. I had put making this off for a long time because it is the trickiest one to do as you are mitrering two tubes at the same time at a very steep angle. I ran out of battery so didn't take photos of the setup but the cut was nice and fit is great.
Everything tinned and ready for fillets once alignment check is done
Syntace dropouts. Very nice.
Yeah I think they look real pretty.
I have no experience with any of the thru axle ones tho
Mum bike is more or less complete
Needs a kick stand and a paint job
My winter trainer is ready. I really wished it had more BB drop. My saddle to bars drop becomes a bit too much for me and my neck. But hopefully it will be fine. I am mostly going to be using this for 50-60km rides once a week during winter.
Most things on this is either deep parts bin stuff or donations from @JesperXT
This is so nice! Really nice and especially a sustainable way!
Whats the bartape?
The bartape is Bontrager ZigZap gel something. But don't bother. It is shit. It snaps super easily and is not worth its price.
Okay thanks! Looks good, though.
The bianchi turned out sweet!
Tidy! Love the color(less) scheme on this one.
New tyres and chainset
Looks great with the extra black
I got some new tyres for the winter fixeh. The tubeless pro ones didn't seat on the non tubeless rims. GP4 season 28c seem light and nice. I loved gp4000s so I bet these will be grand for the intended purpose.
I need to re-extend the steerer and add some spacers under the stem unfortunately. The drop is killing my back and neck on +80km rides
No one will mind.
The is also an option :)
How phat are those 28mm in real life?
I'll measure when I get a chance but they look slightly bigger than 28mm just like gp4000 would have
Sweeet! Looks so tiny :-)
Barspinz for dayz
Well it is ;)
Bars would hit you in the stomach
