  • Blue Nitto track drops with Paul lever or gtfo.

  • Surely for cranks you need a set of these?

  • Paul crankset - I'd be lucky - they are like hen's teeth.

    Does anyone have one knocking around? Hahaha

  • Will it have white rando tyres? I hear they’re really easy to fit....

  • A black Factory5 chainring / crankset would look sweet on this.

    Anyone got one?

  • I have a lesser spotted black version of FSA Gimondi that is going on eBay soon. Could let you have super cheap in the spirit of the thread.

  • Oooh, thanks for the offer.

    Seems like that gives a 45mm chain line. Can I get back to you?

  • Sure, let me know.

  • How's nobody suggested a mash parallax yet?

  • Oh I meant that one in post #2

  • Bet it gets nicked within a month...

    Who is going to want to nick this?!

  • I don't seem to have permission to view that page?

  • Front wheel has arrived and a deal has been struck for the arrospok.

    Just need to sort out crankset chain and pedals.

  • Does anyone know if an aerospoke has a 42mm chainline or something different?

  • Who is going to want to nick this?!

    Haters gonna hate.

  • oh sorry.
    i got a paul crankset for sale if you are interested.

    170mm arms 46 teeth

  • Shit got real !

  • what colour aerospoke?

  • Bit of context to the frame.

    This was a replacement frame from Condor after the original snapped at the seatpost, due to a bad batch of frames in 2009 which all snapped in same location. There is a thread on the forum think @hippy started it...

    The original frame "mars bar bike" snapped outside the Greyhound / West Beers home back then as I was dicking around on curb after being kicked out the pub with Murtle and Max Crowe, Big Red was probably involved too...

    Good times. I didnt like the paintjob (so fickle) on replacement frame and sold it to @Aroogah. I still have the Condor brochure from that year somewhere...

    It's still cracked. It's still used as my pub bike.

  • The aerospoke is white.

    I am going for the FSA Gimondi crankset. Price was too good to refuse!

    All I need now are a BB, pedals and a chain.

    Does anyone have any clue about chainline on an arrospok? I can't find info anywhere...

  • I also had one of the Pistas that cracked.

    My first fixed wheel bike, that was. Betty.

  • Such a good story. As it is forum lore, I shall illustrate it appropriately...
