I love steel, old lugged road frames with modern components and fixedgear for urban riding

Here's mine.. just bought the frame second hand and built it with bits and pieces I had in the shed.
I love the way it rides in and out of work, very comfy... it's not going anywhere!
Hi, I got one of these Raw v4 in S too and I'm just browsing around to look for answers. Just stumbled into your post and I'd like to ask a question in regards to clearance . Is 38 the max tyre you can fit or do you reckon there's room for a bit more?
I've got a pair of WTB Comp Nano 40c in a shed 2500km away and I don't want to throw them in the suitcase for nothing...
Can you help @Aches?
thanks man... I'll have to make a call at some stage. Building wheels is so
Thanks @HousecatHST, that sounds reassuring as I've just picked up a new 110mm BB... phew!
As for the axle, I am not sure... it is a cheap stock wheel. Hubs should be Novatec. Do you reckon it could be changed easily enough?
I am looking at converting my Surly CX possibly with a cheap flip flop 120mm wheel which I have sitting in the shed. Is that possible? Rear spacing on the Surly CX is 132,5 mm so I was just getting two 5mm axle spacers and get on with it...
Will the axle of the 120mm wheel be long enough?
Chainline... Any particular problem with it?
Looking for a V4 frameset for a build... I'm 5' 7" so I guess I'm looking for an size Small even though the website suggests a Medium?
Thanks in advance
