  • It can’t be easy to have a hydro disc breakaway bike ?
    Do you just not disconnect the hoses when you break it down?

  • You pop off the brake calipers when you disassemble instead of disconnecting the hoses!

    I did start a build thread for it but I won't give back to it until I have some confirmation I'm going ahead!

  • Looks like I might have a Christmas miracle after a spectacularly busy and oft times miserable year where I haven't had a chance to finish this (or even ride a bike for the last six months.)

    Now I just need to lose enough weight to safegard against death by exploding lightweight carbon fibre parts...

  • Just had a chat with mechanic who strongly advises against Nokon cables for gearing Red22 as there's too much slack in the housing for 11sp gearing.

    Going with standard Sram cables for now but looks like bike may be ready to collect this evening!

  • boom ! cool

  • That’s rad!

  • so nice...crit mobile!

  • I'm quite chuffed with it! I'll take some proper pictures of it as soon as the weather clears up a bit!

  • Looks NANG

  • The weather has been truly appalling here so I've just taken some snaps in the office but hopefully we'll get a nice clear, sunny day over the Christmas to get it put for a spin and some nice photos. I'm cautious about taking it out for a big spin without a bit of a shakedown on account of the cf chainrings but we'll see how it goes. Still haven't even set saddle height yet.

  • Man that's good

  • Never liked the look of -17° stems on sloping frames, -12° S-Works SL stem could also work slammed if you can handle the fit. Quite the banger otherwise, the red TRP's really seem to work!

  • Yeah, stem not helping the shiting dog look atm.

  • Agreed. I'll get some kms in and see where I am with fit.

  • Specialized Pro-Set adjustable shim stem might get the angle right, thought they're not light.

  • Yeah next step will be to dial in the fit and then slam it!
