I've got an Inbred from the early 00s. I did ask O-O/Planet X if they could tell me exactly when it was from, but was not particularly enlightened. A trip to Bike Park Wales initially got me thinking about new bikes, but being the skinflint/tinkerer that I am, I decided instead to give this bike a makeover. It'll end up with another set of bottle bosses, better cable routing inc. a semi-internal dropper, a new paint job, and various parts serviced/cleaned/tightened/replaced as necessary. Staying with 26", qr wheels, 1x 10spd, a straight 1 1/8th headtube and Avid BB7s though, because they're all absolutely fine if not excellent.
Today was brazing day, which I watched while someone with actual skills and knowledge did the brazing.
So it's now time for a new powder coat, perhaps something between a racing/fern/apple green? Darker is good for practical reasons, and I think I will replace at least the downtube 'On-One' decals, maybe just with white outline lettering.
Wish I knew how to order photos in a post.
Frame dropped off for powder coating today, gone for RAL 6005 - Moss Green.
Looks like a good time. 26 inch disc? Is that easy to do?
Yep, it's one of the generation of frames which came with removable V-brake mounts and a disc mount. The V-brake mounts are off and I'll blank off the mounting points with the correct size grub screws.
I remember doing bpw on BB7's. Never again.
I like inbreds. Cool to see you modding it.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
