Got bored whilst in enforced isolation so stripped down my NS RAG. I need to finish removing the paint, then its going to get a spraybike job.
Heres how it looked before
So far. The build is looking budget but pretty.
Wheels are less budget. Dt 350 front hub. Not sure on rear yet (would like a matching hub, but wheel budget exceeded). Bontrager line 30 carbon rims. Will probably use sapim D light spokes
Also, yep. Square taper. For the long term spinnage
Probably a UN55. Will figure out width once ring is on.
Zipp, middleburn and woolftooth(?) are budget?
I suppose it depends on what budget means, absolute black ring was a bargain due to it being 130bcd.
Zipp XPLR stuff is service course level. So rrp £50 per item, which is very reasonable these days.
Middleburn is less than £200rrp for crank and spider. Whilst not exactly cheap, its not silly money for something will last forever. Grx 800 is £215 rrp and the finish will last 1 ride
Plus, I work in the trade.
Colours...it might look good. Fuck knows
Subbed, these frames are ace
Yep. Light, fast, cheap. Whats not to like ?
Subbed! Gold and silver? Literally no idea how it'll look but I'm along for the ride
Yeah I'm with @yoshy the colour combo sounds brave ;)
howdy ben, like this, you got cranks already?
Yo. Spoke to BETD last week, so was going to order after payday
No actual gold colour , gold is the type of paint from montana
Aye nice, I’ll check out stock Friday, we have some stuff from pre betd days....
Also, I will vote for a Phill BB ;)
