• Did you do this and I missed it? If not, and you can find the time, it sounds like an interesting story.

    Not yet, I’ve been busy and I’m currently a little bit grumpy with Toby at Hot Tubes, but now have some extra time on my hands I may get around to it.

  • No Chapman :(.

    Sad times.

  • Excellent. Not meaning to hurry you, life happens, just encouragement.

    Obviously the rest of this thread is superb

  • First coat of turtlewax down, I’ll add another tomorrow. Hopefully by Tuesday there will be a headset and bb here to begin the build in earnest.

  • Lots of ti m5 bolts for cages and empty rack holes.

    The rack mounts need to be tapped, they are full of paint.

  • Really nice components and bikes in here, that gunnar is going to be good. what saddle post and stem are those?

  • Post and stem are Ti cycles. Post is made in US, I think the stem might be imported? Anywho the stem is probably going to go back to be swapped for a shorter length, hence the other stem in the picture.

    The saddle is a C13 in the medium width.

  • Was going to be a a 11 speed Record mated with a 10-42 Sram X01 cassette. But due to some confusion on what was in my spares box I have the wrong XDR driver for my wheels. The 11-46 SLX cassette in the picture is just too big for the derailleurs chain wrap.

    So options:

    • new freehub body:$170
    • 11-40 XT cassette: $95
    • R8000 group I already own: free
  • Big things coming…

  • If I can find the matching cassette to these fellas I guess the Gunnar is going Ultegra.
