    Started sanding the fork and the the frame.

    Using P355, I’m just making the clear coat a bit rugged. You think thats ok or should i keep going to the black paint?

    The print, being 25% the reason I'm doing this, is pretty hard and slightly embossed. Not sure if I should leave it so I don’t go too far or keep going.

    I started doing the down tube on the frame as well. Seems the pits in the paint are in the clear coat. So new paint is probably going to be a fit smoother.

    Trying to find an m3 sex bolt to do this but with metal :•)

    Turns out it's hard. Feels stupid to order one bolt from China.

    I'm somewhat relieved since I received the GRX group. Earlier I was a bit at odds with the design of the Bombtrack fork, being rather bulky and also weirdly curved (It was not my primary choice but the one I wanted was delayed because of covid and I really want to get rolling). Yesterday I broke out the cranks and realized they actually went quite well together with the fork legs.

    The cranks have also been a compromise in this build. Since I had originally intended to use the WI 94 bcd cranks from my Marin. But being unable to source a 40t NW 94 BCD chainring and also knowing the comfort of hydraulic disc brakes I decided to get the GRX groupset.

    All in all. I'm glad they go well together.

    I don't mind. I'm happy someone is :•)

    I know about drill bits but it works if you move the drill up and down. At least on wood. Don't have a Dremel or file that small unfortunately.

    Yes I think I might go down this route and then clamp it between washers.
