    Hi!
    Im looking for examples of combined bike parking and bike shop / bike repair. Examples in all scales and from all over would be of interest. Googling I only find the huge one in Utrecht https://bicycledutch.wordpress.com/2019/­08/20/finally-fully-open-utrechts-huge-b­icycle-parking-garage/, but I'm sure I've seen some in Amsterdam at least.

    If you come to think of any it would be highly appreciated!

    yeah, thanks. people have tried to make hollowgrams fit bsa road frames for 15 years and that's why the mars cycles bike is intriguing. if the frame is really bsa then my experience is that chainline and q factor with hollowgrams and longer spindle is shit, no matter how well your cranks from a different brand has worked in the past.

    seems like frame is pf30 though so never mind: http://www.nolifelikethislife.com/philly­bikeexpo-marscycles/

    That explains it. Sram bb30 cranks, short or long axle version, have the drive side axle interface recessed in the crank making the chainring overlap the axle towards center of frame. Hollowgrams do not.

    Have you actually done this? Those spiders are for adjusting chain line in and out depending on cassette position in the rear given that the DS crank is positioned as intended. A BSA30 bb in a threaded frame moves the default position of the chainring mount out some 10 mm. A very dished chainring might set it right but won't affect the Q factor being around 20 mm wider?

    Yeah but chainline/q-factor will be terrible with hollowgrams if you put a long enough axle to clear bsa shell and outboard cups?
    Please prove me wrong if anyone have done this!

    Any info on this? Looks like hollowgram Crank in bsa bb shell on a Ritchey logic? Yes that should not work?

    That looks great!
    But what is that bike on the right? Made in the US Slate with super strange Lefty with dropped internals is a first!
