The Shand road bike has been ridden as above for the past few years and a bunch of parts have simply worn out so it's about time it saw some love. Since moving to Berlin I only really used it for group rides...the pandemic has put pay to those and since building a fat tyre bike I've been riding almost exclusively off road so so it's been living a quiet life on the rollers.
The Flo wheels are dead, 2 front wheels braked through, rear rim cracked and free hub worn out.
Got a new set of wheels built: Hope RS4s on Archetypes, new cassette, chain, saddle, ESI tape
Managed to find a pair of Open Pave's (no green stripe though 😢), haven't ridden them in years and used to love them so jumped on them however when rummaging through my parts box I found a new pair of Veloflex Master 28's and decided to stick them on for summer.
I also stripped the whole bike to clean everything in an ultrasonic bath, everything come out clean and shiny, but the brakes and DNS crank arm came of without the anodising haha
I like the brakes as I'll always chuckle thinking about pulling them out of the bath, the cranks look rough but been meaning to get a Stages powermeter for a while anyway...
All fresh and ready for summer:
