  • Headset isn't playing well. It's a bit disappointing as this was the second one I received due to the first one binding. This one is kinda the same. Might have to chuck the moody King on instead.

  • this is soo good

  • Super rad

  • xtr lol !

  • Can't you use a short cage road derailleur instead?

  • Not with a Dynasys shifter

  • I've got a 7900 mech doing nothing that would be great but flat bar shifters for that are expensive

  • Can't for the life of me remember if an SL-R770 would do the job. 7900 pull ratio was a weird one from memory.

  • I missed this project and I'm loving the Spoon livery!

  • Sorta kinda compliments the cage 😅

  • Was the headtube faced?

  • Nah, but it also wasn't really painted.
    And the current headset is still way loose. And the quality was a bit meh anyway on this and the first one.
    I'm gonna swap out for the King and just keep this top cap to route the hose which was the main selling point for me

  • Looking good, but Shirley you’ll need a longer stem? Mine felt short even with 100mm .. And I’m only a wee hobbit of a fellow

  • There's potential to pivot the bars forward a bit. The idea is to be as upright as possible at the moment.

  • I'll have to test the fit once I have a saddle and pedals fitted. Still sort of wondering of I can get a smaller derailleur on there.

  • Due to shite deliveries, this is on pause while I move my life. Things will resume in like April or something. Slow slow burner

    Gives me time to work out the derailleur situation anyways.
    And think about bafang.

  • This looks cool. What are the bars?

  • They were the OE bars from an Orbea Katu
