Good place to give my SID a long overdue service.
Painting it blue, I hope
The SID, not the room
looks like a nice place to work on velogames excel sheets for success
All it needs is an array of four screens for my velogames excel sheets.
The beginnings of an excellent 'pain cave'
I reckon cheap trainers should be hitting eBay any day now?
Very happy with the geriatric bars, 16 degrees sweep is spot-on and I wouldn't have wanted the 30mm more rise of the Stooge bars. I'll probably go for a slightly longer and lower stem, when I find the courage for that I'll also switch the forks back to the P2s for a bit so I can give the SID a long overdue service.
(No filter, just a shit picture.)
I've also fitted the 5800 front derailleur, just need to cable it up and adjust it. I'm hoping it will work as planned with the Force shifter, but it's replacing a SRAM derailleur so the bar is set quite low.
This means I'll also finally fit the MV stem, the bike is approaching it's final form until I run into a spare grand to buy a Rival AXS groupset. Which is looking unlikely with my current career.
After hours tinkering. Shit lights because I need to ride it home and I couldn't find the proper ones. Need to check if I can really hack this position and will then chop the steerer, would also mean it's time for a new top tube bag. New front derailleur seems great.
The Shimano front derailleur is actually very good, really happy with where this is heading. I need to saw the steerer now, the position is challenging but manageable.
I don't understand the drive to cut the steerer. Looks fine as it is now and gives you options for future changes in fit and preference.
Blasphemy. Slam it and chop it
Then fit riser bars
I like the little pop of red with the blue fork! But I like it in it’s proper form with the cages in the right places. Any more sunlight pics? There’s some light splattering right?
That stem looks really cool too
I'm on team Phil, an uncut steerer just looks unfinished to me.
There's this picture but the splattering doesn't really register because it's a bit overexposed. I will take better pictures as soon as the steerer is cut, probably somewhere in september.
The orange sort of has the same effect, quite like it with the blue.
Our crème brûlée burner is perfectly adequate for silver brazing. Made a paper towel holder for the kitchen as a test piece because it has a bend, a mitred joint and a flat joint Onwards to more serious projects soon, I just need to figure out the work holding part as this is all a bit wonky.
Made some bags for the Kona.
