1x on a classy frame like that is the best.
Back from holidays.. I've acquired some cool stuff in the meantime. Unfortunately no plugs for my crazy Da ax handlebars. Some guy on Facebook makes them from resin but he's gone silent :( I might just use Cinelli bars from the RIH instead
And just like that it's done! For now... I'll probably put the front derailleur on next time I have time for this. The chain falls off pretty easily, who would've thought :D
As you can see my photography skills still haven't improved!
Some more... (bike actually in focus, kinda)
And why not one more... :)
I'm really happy with how the handlebar section turned out! Safe to say wrapping handlebars is always a bit of a struggle for me to get it exactly right. I think this time around I've done a pretty good job at it. The cello tape just looks so cool and it kind off matches the blue aero bottle I got from Marktplaats, thanks to @damskodonny for linking it to me.
I wasn't entirely sure about the cabling situation for the rear derailleur. Ended up using a lot of cable liner to do the job.
Also, I still think it would be cool to build some low spoke count wheels for this.
Love the combi of the thin seatstays and flat seattube
Thanks people! I'll try to take better photo's when it's 2x
Really beautiful bike!
