Mikenetic's charity sale item two: TIG Tourer

Posted on
  • I built this one for me for wandering around on and off road, and also to put my TIG welding skills to good use. Fave moment on this bike - riding those converted railway tunnels outside Bath.

    It's Columbus Zona with a Kinesis CXD fork and colour matched Portland Design Works mudguards. Paint is metallic grey with a petrol (that not-quite-turquoise blue) top tube detail. Paint was by Cole Coatings. The TIG welds were finished with a very fine coat of 55% silver brazing rod that was sanded smooth.

    It's a pretty standard 54cm road geo, with a 550mm effective top tube. The frame has headtube-mounted gear adjusters, and it's eyeleted for a rear rack if you fancied putting one on.

    Saddle height is set to 730mm in the pictures

    Spec is:

    Columbus Zona tubeset, Kinesis CXD fork. Paragon machine works dropouts
    Hope headset
    105 5800 mechanical groupset, 50-34 172.5mm chainset, 11-32t cassette
    TRP Spyre mechanical disk brakes
    DT Swiss X392 rims, Sapim Race spokes, on Hope Evo 2 hubs with Hope QR skewers
    32mm Gatorskins
    Ritchey comp stem, bar, seat post. Thompson seat post clamp
    Charge spoon saddle (I have a couple of Fizik ones knocking about if that's more your thing)
    Unbranded Arundel carbon fibre bottle cages

    No pedals at the mo, but I think I have some XT SPDs in the loft I could stick on.

    £550 collection from North London N4. All sale proceeds going to charity. If you don't know the background to the sale, it's here https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/3618­97
