    I thought so but still my point is that frontside slashes are the best

    Yes! Learn a frontside grind/slash/kick turn next. They are so nice when you get a consistent hit on the coping

    not giving up yet! plus, I already sold the seatpost and saddle, and will throw the shifters, front derailleur, bars and crank on marktplaats later this week. hopefully that will make it break even.

    still think it's weir how the frame looks perfect on the outside, almost no marks or anything, and then the inside seems to be crusty as hell. the thing has probably seen a good cross race or two, but someone forgot their greasing...

    yep! I think drilling it out, tapping new thread in old bolt and then removing might be the best shot. So much work tho

    Concorde update: stem is stuck and has already cost me three years of my life trying to get it loose. And the derailleur bolt that goes into the frame has been stripped by previous owner. What a joy.

    The other project is the big one. I found myself not riding my roadbike unless I wanted to join friends/group rides. The thing was too speedy and a bit too small as well. So with the girlfriend buying her dreamy Genesis Vagabond, I figured I needed some do it all thing as well.

    Alas, I ordered a Brother Cycles Mehteh from Suicyclestore in Hamburg. They said it should arrive somewhere in october, we'll see.
    I've started collecting parts slowly. I'm not going to do anything superfancy to it. Hydro discs are too much dollar for me, so I'm picking up BB7's tomorrow. Rest of the parts I have are the 105 group from the road bike and cheap marketplace finds.
