One in - one out
I saw one being ridden earlier this year, a beaut. You ARE going to ride it? Building as is or giving it a respray?
I struck lucky as I think these are quite sought after. I’m going to strip down my kona and transfer all the campagnolo kit over. I’ll need to buy some more forks (surly trolls) and a sim works dirty Rhonda stem.
I’ll then ride as is for a while- it has a long head tube and relatively short top tube. I can visualise a nice pastel paint job in the future if it rides and fits well
Nice score! I had looked at this but not my size.
This is ace, but getting rid of the Kona? That was one of the best builds currently on here imo.
Clearances look good, drop bar again?
Yes, I’ll move on the kona frameset at some point but this geometry looks a bit less stretched out than the kona.
Drop bar definitely- still need to finish off the Raleigh quantum with big wide bars...
Arrived, 1” headtube, not 1 1/8th as advertised- no problems though as I can use the kona forks i I had on the cindercone
Awesome. Looking forward to seeing progress with this!
Mucking around a bit today.
Bar tape colour will change.
Rear derailleur hanger is a bit bent and the threads are shite.
I’ve bought a thread tap off eBay- that and a big spanner should sort it out:
Enjoyed all of your builds and this is no exception. The fork really suit it too as does the -0.5 scoblebricks™.
Thanks- I’ve sorted out the threads on the rd hanger - very satisfying using a cheap tool off eBay.
I can just squeeze crazy bobs in:
Those tyres are absolutely massive! Looks totally brutal.
Got to sub to this...
Cool. Are those forks the same length as the originals? Look slightly longer. Probably the angle though.
Most Overburys I've seen online have an almost horizontal top tube.
Kona was rad. This is radder. Looking forward to the final product.
Thanks. Not sure if they are the same a to c as the original forks - quite a few have sloping t tubes
God that one is really nice. Definitely looks more like your TT slope too.
Not much progress with this due to work and house selling/ buying taking up all my time.
Position feeling better, thinking of getting a pizza rack for the forks.
Going for purple cloth tape I think.
I have a new campagnolo cable set ready to bring this to life!
Do you plan on taking panniers?
If not I'd go for a smaller lighter rack.
Bike looks so good!
I’ve got a surly nice front rack but it weighs a tonne...
Was thinking that the pizza rack was less hefty?
I have a pair of small super c panniers and a restrap rando bag so thought that might work
I see.. It's probably lighter than the surly rack - I haven't been able to find the weight of the pizza rack online tho.
You might want to look into a Pelago commuter rack in the medium size.. You can get adapators, that allow you to mount the restrap bag directly to it too.
Or actually not even use a rack but some bike Packing bags.
Think I prefer these fat tyres and white flite
Also a very strong look!
