  • New week new bike

    Jan Janssen Sallanches Luxe

    I just started reassembling the Diamant Titanium but now I think it has to wait another summer season

  • I see possibilities right here

  • Awesome! Love the colours on this.

  • Great colours:)

  • thx!

    I first need to figure out how to remove the bottom bracket, than order small campa parts to complete the groupset and after that thinkering about what way to go on colours (saddle, bar tape, tires)

    In the mean time these two bikes popped up for sale nearby.. at very good prices. 40e Specialized Rockhopper and a 70e future personal city bike Scott XC. Talking bout the Scott, it's heavy, the wheels are shite as all the rest of the components but man I'm happy with the thing. And somehow it rides really well. Long term plans are better brakes, front basket, bigger tires, new mudguards (in random order).

    gazelli Giro is sold before I even could test ride it

  • More pictures of the rockhopper

  • This week the chainring for the bafang arrived so today I put it onto the bike. Also modified the chainguard so it still can be used and that was pretty it, fully functional now. Only thing I still want to do is make a decent cable routing, not sure about drilling the frame but more thinking in the direction of stick on cable retainers like below. And already ordered spiral wrap for keeping the cables together.

  • It's been a while but the Rockhopper was finished and sold last week. So new pictures:

    (yes i'd polish the frame hence the matte finish is gone)

  • And i tried to make this Allez a bit more shiny

  • Results:

    Vision wheels version:

  • Impressive cleanups!

  • Stunning, how did you do the cranks on the Sirrus? Paint or anodise?

  • that's a glow up

  • Painted, color + clear coat

  • Thanks!

    And forgot to mention my best purchase so far, a free Norco!

  • both Specialized bikes are gone, but there's new old metal in the shed:

  • Whats going on with the fork? It looks compressed

  • Sharp eye! I just measured it and it's 10 cm, same as the 29 Reba so I think it should be allright

  • Changed the headset of the Gazelle just to discover the fork tube is too short for this type..

    and I guess I need a long reach rear brake because the current one isn't working

    A compensating easier project, just waiting for a new chain and some tape:
