the silver crankset looks really out of place. a carbon would finish this off nicely
Good lord 😭
But then please source me one!
Edit: source me one for a non-ridic price
Could look good with a similar aero crankset destickered? Like a vision? Or rotor?
Or get the DA anodized in black maybe...
I was considering this option but i have no clue who does it for individual parts and at what cost
Skant sent me a reference company but that led nowhere unfortunately
rotor aldhu carbon would be my choice, nice bit of modern kit put against the rest of the bike.
One would like to disagree ;)
i would hate to be consensual
Still no opinion on the crank „issue“
Finishing touches in other respects though:
Love them on a L96 but not on a 496 ;-*
@e54 - some look cranks here on eBay!
Oooff you are putting some pressure upon me, mate
Took me 4 weeks to install chain and stem and take some pics but yeee…
par excellence !
Yeah that's beyond cool, what a build
The valves don't match! ; )
Seriously though, this is amazing.
I just learned that only the second generation of 496 frames use pressfit bottom brackets
(Mine has a threaded BB)
Hence: ZED is not possible on my frame
Bank account says ~thanks~
Shame! But it still looks so good anyway, I’m not sure you’re losing out at all!
Frankly, its just adaptors and I forgot to remove them before taking pics ☠️
Again much appreciate your feedback on the look
Now.. when I said to myself „no new projects“, we all know that what I was trying to say was „no new project until I find a new project“ right? Right????
Ok here‘s the story:
Last year, when my son was 3 1/2 i found out that he likes pump tracks so I went and assisted him a bit.
Now hes almost 4 1/2 and he still likes to ride pump tracks
So, with his new 18“ bike (instead of 12“ above), I assisted him again which was fun of course
Bit then I began thinking why I just stand there and watch him?
I decided to join him but of course, spending a couple hundred EUR for a dirtbike is not my style
So i decided to buy a way-too-small 90s MTB and build my own DIY dirtbike
I call it diYrtbike 😈
First, a was into a TREK then a MARIN then - guess what - a CAAD
(Sellers great pic)
To be honest, this one has seen better days but:
