Well spotted. I drilled two holes in the frame and fitted rivets for some cannondale cable guides. Front mech is just on a clamp on bracket but due to low bottle cage mounts. you can only go big 53t what I have or 46t chainring without hitting the cage.
Great thread and fantastic title! OK, here's my triebwerk out and about
Very nice bike!
But... I don't get what's special about the thread title. :D
Care to explain?
There's a London newspaper called the Evening Standard, and when people used to sell it (it is now free) there was a well-known shout from the sellers to attract buyers - 'Standard, Standard, read all about it' or similar.
Nice one... what size have you got... 56?
58 although top tube is 56 and I had the headtube shortened 10mm. Geo is a bit different to current models
So yours will have hilarious amounts of toe over lap like mine then. ( it’s only been an issue once, first ride) Nice hack for the mech btw.
Not had an issue with me toes mind but yeah. Etap would have worked as well with a 46/35 chainset they do, but more dollar bills and Sram rival is just fine for racing and crashing
The chap I got mine from had run DA with a full outer cable, but Liz and I have 14 bikes between us and not a front mech in sight, still good to know for when my knees die ;)
Ok. Makes sense now. Great thread title indeed! :D
Thanks for the explanation.
Finally picked up my serviced wheels so popped them in and went for a spin, just a nice as I remember:)
The new Kreissäge is showcased tomorrow with new colour ways. Anyone else looking to buy one? I probably will 😂
I've been thinking about it, but not sure what my new bike plan is yet.
I’ve got a pfadfinder on the way. Anyone know what length bolts I’ll need for flat mount callipers with 160mm adapters?
I might have the bolts and adapter you need from my old Pfadfinder. You can have them for a beer or two, but they're at my parents so it won't be quick.
Thanks for the offer. I’d need them posted though as I’m not in London.
this might be an odd question but I'm new to disc road/off road bikes... I'm thinking of consolidating all bikes into one 'do it all bike'... a Ritchey Road Logic is on the the radar, would a Pfadfinder be a decent contender?
better because, guard mounts
good shout... cheers!
Exactly what I did, have 2 wheel sets and i'm very happy with it.
nice! good to hear, what size is yours?
I'd be moving from a Parlee limited to 23c and a Moots... love them both but am temped by the frame in the classifieds...
I got a 54, i'm 5'10" and fits me well. Can get up to 42 on 650bs without guards
I am looking at these two as well. Both great bikes.
My vote is for the Ritchey. I think the Ritchey probably would feel more lively/ less stiff (which I like) because of the smaller tubes and somewhat steeper headtube angle. But it should depend also on your weight and how strong you are, I guess .
Ah, sorry. Just seen your dibs on the Standert in classifieds. Great choise anyway. Hope you can make the deal.
Yeah… need to do the sums on what I’d need to build it up with vs cycle to work scheme ritchey off the peg… pretty keen on the Standert…
