  • Hmmn, poss - mabes.

    I'm actually trying to buy my old Slice premium forks back as they have more clearance than the Ultra's and are obvs lighter. I can still get a 28c GK in the Ultra's but the Premium's took a 30c G-one (or at least in this test it looked like they would, never actually rode it with a 30c in there).

    Any idea on clearance? What's the steerer length?

  • steerer is 205mm long and the narrowest point between the blades, before they start curving in is 32.7mm

    edit: i think slice premium, premium+ and si were made with the same mould, ultra forks are a bit different

  • Commuter cockpit finally sorted for the Capo. 120mm X2, 700mm de-logo's Spank bars, 3mm Yoshida champ grips and a Paul lever ( cheers @littleK )

    And this was a lot of fun for doing laps of Richmond park on, Definitely a better fit than the Capo for road fixed atm

  • Just need to refit the GP 4000's then the Capo is done for now, if Barbie road a Fixeh...

    And after building up the CAAD9 with the original 9 speed Tiagra I realised I had most of an 11 speed group milling about. Selling off some old clothes paid for some shorter cranks to complete the puzzle. Irritatingly they've sent me the wrong length but I'll have it built soon enough.

  • So nice to see that Dart living on! And a shame we never got to take it to production. It would have been the best one we'd done under the TF brand in my opinion.

    I suppose at some point I should start trying to amass a collection of the bike I've designed!

  • Yeah i'm really happy with it, considered selling it a few times but it ticks so many boxes. Been weighing up if i have room/need for both Capo and Dart and the Dart is currently winning. It deserves a new coat of paint but the scruffy paint is so handy for locking it up. Do you have the original files for the graphics?

    How's the cafe going? I'll swing by next time i'm west.

  • How’s the caad going?

  • It's coming along nicely. Needless to say original build plans are out the window and there's very little I haven't changed. Fortunately I've been doing a lot of sales/swaps lately so it's been done on a tight budget.

    Old but latest pic I have, wheels have since changed to Kinlin/Corsa's and the seat post is now a black S-works.

    I'll get some pics up soon but it's actually on it's way to Cornwall with me now for some hopefully sunny coastal rides.

  • Looking good man. Any idea of the weight?
