just missing some cranks and a chain now. and a tall enough kid...
I'll take the rest of the stickers off when I get a minute
Nice! Almost got one of these frames a few years ago, now the kids are too big.
Did this 650c bike some years ago but for short woman instead of a kid (frame by Antonio Taverna). She did the paintjob herself. Fork is a very light full carbon 650c Mizuno...
I think I might have been the source of both this 26" frame and @Laplandlongspur 's
I was so traumatised after doing the 20" and 24" ones (for a friend's kid, not even my own!) that I had to remove the temptation to keep the 26" frames around.
Here they were when I first got them all - how simple I thought it would be. I am sure it doesn't hurt to be an aircraft engineer like Lapland ;)
I found brifters impossible for small hands, so I managed to put twist-grip shifters on drop bars (by chopping and rewelding the bars!) which was the high-point/low-point - I think that was the "go home, you're drunk now" moment...
Just finished the 26” or 650 bike.
I used some parts from the 20” build, Di2 parts, saddle, seat post, brakes.
New parts- Wheels (obvs), drop bars , levers, lovely Stronglight chainset (150mm cranks 34t ring and chain guard).
This is amazing!! brilliant build :)
How are the cranks?
XD kid I presume? I've been trying to work out which length to go for.
1x too - like it!
