Tried to sell stuff from the parts bin but failed, decided to build a bike from the parts instead.
Need brakes and a crankset, probably end up with bb7 and apex 1.
Trying to figure out some kind of neat light setup too, preferable F+R light with one battery to both. Suggestions?
I have carbon spyre calipers and 46/36 Ultegra crankset (which also comes with 40t narrow/wide ring). If you are interested.
Dyno dyno dyno
Get yourself a Velogical Rim-Dynamo...
Nice! I'm going with the obligatory '650b? ' comment
Oh, well played fitting the third flap!
Thanks for the offer, but I’ve ordered an apex1 crankset :)
Good notice with the third flap too, figured it was worth a shot
Haha naaah, if it was a nicer build id go dyno, but feels to expensive now as i got a wheel already
Which rack is that please?
It’s a RFR rack from bikester.
Meant to mount in canti studs, but i used some abus mounts inStead
Smart. Link for the Abus mounts? For their frame locks I guess?
haven't tried any high loads on them, but the vertical forces would be divided between the three mounting points, the torque would be put straight through the abus mounts and against the fork legs, which would be more than strong enough
That's exactly the setup I have on my Kaff' commuter:
Thats is V nice!
You're not wrong.
This is my current Kaffenback setup https://www.pedalroom.com/bike/planet-x-kaffenback-2-30603
Really want some of those flat bars (what are they please?) and a small front porteur rack, maybe to just have one paint scheme too
That’s the kaffenback that made me build mine up haha.
It’s the alpkit jones loop bar copies. Really nice with a bunch of hand placement options
cheers - not got a link have you please? I'm seeing some Jeff Jones ones for £150 and that is about it
They don't sell the loop bar copies any more as the design was too similar to Jones. They do a modified version called Confucius bars.
Cool, I'm glad if my bike can inspire others :-)
Just waiting for the snow to melt enough to use it.
New bar on the way as well, that won't block the basket as much
What bars are they currently? Fu Manchu's?
BTW image doesn't seem to show (for me at least) but linking to the file seems to: http://i66.tinypic.com/21jvceg.jpg
yep, the alpkit fu manchu's
really nice, a tad bit too narrow though
@megl how is your front rack fitted attached please? No mounts so think front rack wise for me needs @LucasNilsson style clamp on. Does the basket you have there just bolt to the rack? Cheers
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
