Thats super nice. Im looking for some carbon forks for mine...
Out of interest, does the increase in stack from the longer a2c forks (assuming theyre longer than the original steel ones) and the external lower headset cup change the handling that much?
Forks are the same a2c, plus a few mm for the headcup, it’s barely going to change the handling.
If anything, better for going downhill!
I thought as much.
Few little updates on this. I know the stem is ridiculous but I love it and it was only £15 new of ebay.
The best upgrade is the new M6000 levers with old XT M7something Calipers which are lovely.
That Lee Cooper 653 road bike has undergone a whole make over from this:
Rides so much better and has lost alot of weight too. It also has some nicer campag wheels to go on when the cassette and tyres turn up.
I know it needs a new stem too as this is UGLY but its hard to find slim 26mm clamp stems in 100mm length. So if anyone has one let me know.
both look super nice! I really like the transition - before pic of the lee cooper isnt loading unfortunately :(
Its showing for me? its on the 1st page also.
I cant get over how much I love the Transition right now
Hosting your images on pedal room isnt a good idea they seem to be having a lot of issues lately, I got a HTTPS cert warning earlier when i tried to load the images. it seems. Id recommend moving them to somewhere else
Yeah I had load of trouble uploading images last night. Will sort it out later.
Those stems are great. Not sure you can even buy that colour new (edit: opposite of what you said....link please :) ? )
Was it from a Wanty Groupe Gobert team bike or something?
It was just a NOS find on eBay im afraid.
If it was really NOS I dont know but there was not a single mark on it!
