Big up your mum! My gf has the same peg board from ikea, for the same purposes.
I want to see more of that van of yours.
It works really well, My dad converted half the study into a sewing room as a retirement present for her.
For van updates read from here onwards:
Tomorrow I am making a curtain with my mum to help insulate the front and back from cold / noise. Will be sandwich of 2mm neoprene with a layer of tyvek in the middle. I'll post photos tomorrow.
Head tube and seat tube no?
Yes ST would have been fine if the HT was longer.
Took advantage of the period of dry weather whilst I'm in wales
Looks bloody lovely!
looking at the bars I thought you were riding this:
ha, you literally have the same bars on your bike!
Finally some gravel action!
Finally some action!
Finally some action!
So my new forks came...
I'd pay good money to watch your unboxing channel where you open parcels using tablespoons
@spotter ID on the framebag please? Did I see you comment about getting one from straightcut the other week... have I made that up or is it for another bike? Would be keen if it is surplus to requirements please but it does look perfect on that setup
I will be getting on for my new bike eventually, the one on my MTB is a revelate and 100% not surpulus sorry.
Whilst my GFs genesis is being built she's back on her Pashley Princess, which...is a heavy old thing thing. I got mad there was no where good to put a front light (mostly due to the basket being higher than the bars), so queue this old bodge:
a bit of steerer, a starnut, some innertube and a p-clip, which has hugely improved side visibility:
Also got pissed off when working on it that it was so heavy, so got her a double kick stand
I was planning on using the cranks that had come with her other bike, but they're 130BCD so I picked up a set one of the most hansome cranks ever FC-MT60 for under £15 too. the paint/coating is long gone and so when she picks a colour for the frame i'll get these powdercoated black
Wow.. content went downhill fast
Can we have some snaps of the Christian homeless bike
Did some work on my ff's bike
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
