  • So ive decided to build a geared commuter bike..

    Story behind this bike:
    I bought it online called shpock
    And been on the garage for 5 years
    The groupset seems to work the only issue is the seatpost was seized....
    Ill sort that out when im done finding the groupset...

    What i need:
    ●groupset 11 speed
    (Sram or shimano)
    ● quill stem black 110mm sorted
    ●compact dropbar sorted
    ●1 inch black headset threaded sorted
    ●bartape sorted

    Thats all for now
    Best regards

  • GTs are always nice. Mudguard mounts as well. Is it gonna have mudguards?

  • Yeah mudguard is a must and ive sorted that already from @Scrabble

  • Why do you need two stems for one bike? ;)

    I really like GTs, curious how you’re gonna do it!

  • This is cool, steel? What size is it?

  • Why do you need two stems for one bike?

    Good question, i dont use 1 inch adaptor to fit ahead stem nope nope....

    curious how you’re gonna do it!

    nothing fancy on this build but the finish product will tell the truth...

    Keep it simple but headturner

  • Yes yes...its 54cm

  • Shimano or sram?

  • If shimano
    5800 or 6800

    If sram
    Apex or rival

  • So, 6800 or Rival you mean?

  • This bike needs Rival!

  • Yes..but i think ill stick with shimano as my two road bike has already so i reckon 6800?

  • SRAM Force would be adequate here, no? I'm such a sucker for this GT... I have an alloy force but would like a steel one instead....

    And for stem options, how bout' that:

    I have one but dunno whether it's a 100 or 110mm... Will check soon. PM me if you're interested!

  • Needs hip hop


  • ^ I’ll buy salsa road quill stem if anyone has :P

  • lol was just thinking I should put a wanted ad in ><

  • 1st photo yes 2nd not a big fan....

    Salsa quill stem is pretty hard to find these days

  • Ordered few item already, groupset still thingking rival 22 or 6800

  • I’d say Rival

    But can’t go wrong with either

  • Which ever is cheaper id go for it

  • Probably 5800 then. No competitors for this one regarding value.

  • Get the better entry level mate 6800 ive read some reviews re. The rival 22 and im not convince to go with that....

  • Parts Almost sorted only waiting a confirmation about the groupset..

  • Youll see it
