Woopee! That looks great! Good job!.
That was 3 months ago, I lost steam as the rona picked up, work picked up too, reaching a break neck pace and that stopped me riding anything other than my mtb, and commuting.
Then, the other day I got a pair of Nitto bullmooses for a song that were destine for this bike. I have a weakness for well made things, and even more so if they are from Japan, so it was a given. But it raised a question I have been pondering for a decent while:
What the heck am I going to do about gearing? I have a 11-42 xt cassette in my bits bix, with a slx derailleur and shifter, which works nicly, but after riding the south downs on the pearson (46-30 with an 11-34) I sorta want that. But with flat bars. I really liked the idea of getting microshift thumbies but either way I see it, im up for £80, and I cant work out what I want more. I have another set of FSA omega cranks (46-30) but I dont have a cassette, and they are too hard to find currently. Then, I also have to get another derailleur. Maybe I can try 1x with the 11-42, but I really like 2x. Its actually really good in most siduations.
Any advice would well welcomed. I have no idea where Im going with this project.
