  • Just tinkering.

    Cable is now trimmed and pretty much sorted

    Guard stays need trimming

    Need a longer crown bolt and probably want two rubber washers either side

    Need to mount long flaps

  • Couldn’t help myself.

    Cables in, trying to get everything prepped so the minute the frame is here I can build with no Faff

  • Good going.

  • Frame is painted and should arrive back with me tomorrow. Had a bit of a tinker with the USB box cabling, needs tidying up but I’m happy with where it is going

    It’s a cool bike and all but marrying it was a bit much

  • Where did you get it powder coated?

  • I enjoyed that.

  • The company is called the powder shack!

  • Few more bits today, pretty much all done with daughter in one arm..

    Fitting the rx800 mech to my other bike to ride to work.

    Hoping this is done ASAP

    Just need to wang on the rear light, bartaping in the dark actually went well!

  • Ride home later!

  • I love that saddle rack/bag combo thingy. What is it?

  • Carradice bagman quick release expedition, also make a slightly smaller one called the sport.

    Works perfectly with carradice bags, just get the non quick release one for normal bags

    They also do stabiliser struts got bumpy use that mount to the upper pannier rack frame mounts

  • Finally got the rear light sorted, also stuck on loads of reflective 10mm tape to the guards and seat stays prior to the winter rides!

    Getting some numb left hand rides after 10 miles, thinking time to find some cowbell bars and different tape, lower pressures don’t seem to have helped too much yet
