Starting this up again after a year of it languishing in my cupboard.
Just added Frogglegs. They actually might work on the insane 55mm narrow brake posts. Next stop Mafac if not.
Got an old Mavic 500 wheelset on there with a 6 speed freewheel. I would like to see if an 8 speed would fit. I definitely need low gearing, as I am crap on hills.
Similarly, old XT triple on there, hopefully I can get a BB that will let me use this. Would gladly take suggestions for other cranks tho.
I am thinking I will go with drops, 8 speed bar end shifters, and simple brake levers. All of which I'll need to find...
Tan wall CX tyres too ofc.
I'm a sucker for old cross bikes. Most definitely subbed to this.
