  • Picked up a Equilibrium frameset for winter duties + commuting. My first disc bike so errors may occur.

    The build will be a mish-mash of existing parts, with an ultegra groupset

  • The main goal is to be a solid commuter, it will have fenders, a rear rack and eventually dynamo powered lights.

    Wheelset picked up yesterday - Son Delux front, Hope RS4 rear, both laced to stans no tubes grail ztr

  • Today, fitted bottom bracket and headset

    parts from bin:
    -Fizik saddle
    -Zipp seatpost
    -Zipp Stem (acetoned)

    28mm tyre suggestions? I have commuted on 25mm gatorskins for the last 18 months without a single puncture (London), and whilst I don't enjoy riding gatorskins, puncture resistance is a must.

    Imagine there must be a few better options at 28mm ?

  • Nice frame!
    Michelin Pro 4 Endurance V2.
    Maybe also "acetone" the seatpost?

  • Cheers for the suggestion - looks good, will do a bit more research

    Maybe also "acetone" the seatpost?

    Thats the plan!

  • Getting there

    Need a band on ultegra front derailleur, some chain ring bolts, replacement mounting hardware for rack, chain and a lock ring tool for the centerlock discs

  • trying to set up disc callipers (Juin Tech F1)

    the brake pads seem to be too close to the disc rotor, the calliper is mounted in align, but the rotor is pretty much exactly the width of the gap between pads so it rubs very lightly.

    Is there some sort of adjustment I am missing? the pads rubbed before i installed cable so maybe there is something on the calliper to adjust?

    Juin Tech F1 callipers didnt come with any manual and very little online.

    A simple setup video. If they are still rubbing after following this then maybe the pistons need pushing back in slightly? I've not fitted these before however. Might be question for the 'disc brakes are dead' thread.

  • yeah ive watched that, I'll cross post in the disc brakes are dead thread
