    This looks absolutely mint!

    Not much to update, just picked up a bb (as there was none in this size in stock) and some grips off a mate. Will fit the bb on the weekend, and now I am undecided as to whether I want Albatross or Bullmoose bars... 🧐

    Very cool! The black tyres look really good, and the light looks neat!

    tbh I like it, I had never ridden a road bike before this so I have no idea what anything else is like. My brother just had GRX cranks spare from a Klein build he did (the cranks wouldn't fit in his bb), so donated them to me for the Fort.

    dropped the Marin off with my mate at Evans to have a look at as I haven’t got a BB tool and he said he was keen to play about with it, so guess I owe him a beer or two. Hopefully by the end of the week I’ll just need to order the fancy bits off the internet, and figure out what shifters I want... I was thinking friction thumbies, but whatever comes cheaper will probs suffice.

    In other news the replacement rear wheel (cheap halo white line off eBay) for my road bike turned up, so I whacked that on today, alongside the tyres kindly given to me by @Maj . Think I’m going to call the road bike finished for now, pretty happy with it! Need to recable the rear gears as the cable has started to fray at the boss thingy (idk what it’s called). The hub has a pretty satis click too. Would take it outside for a nicer picture but it’s far too cold for that.

    Cheers!

    @Qebrus it is! It’s pretty much all original components other than the saddle, and they’re all in pretty good shape, so I don’t think I’ll need to make any major changes!

    @TheConCon666 cheers! Yeah, I’ve been following that for a bit too, looks really great! Yeah I am. I was originally going to replace with bullmoose bars off a mate, but I saw the stem and decided to keep it. Was thinking about blue/orange cabling but think that may be a bit much...

    Shin pads are a must on this bike, no questions about it. Oh yeh, undoubtedly. But hey, it’s fun to ride even when it’s fucked, so will be wicked when it’s done

    This is true, may change plans and put a hub motor on and make it a DIY e bike
