Ooff. That looks amazing. And I haven't said that about a road bike in about 8 years.
Ha! It's not something that worries me too much - should be easily blanked out with a Sharpie though.
My usual shit timing struck and I'm in quarantine having traveled interstate, but here are some more pictures of the build from before I left.
Shoehorned a shit collar on for now till I can file back the paint build up. A bit of silver was a nice change though.
Glad we're on the same page for the collar, we deicided it'd be best to skim it back a bit, but for now got an outsized one over it, essentially just so I can ride it. Next issue was a slightly misaligned brake tab on the fork which meant sanding back a bit of the metal (it's plenty thick). First bikes eh?
@nogk powder coat is great - as I found though, it can add a fair bit of mass to the frame. Seatpost collars are a particular barrel of laughs...
@vp1337 It looks it in hand, but not at all out of place on as you'll see shortly
LOL! I was going to go for a "Hulsroy Earthtone" vibe but didn't want to hug the nut too hard ;)
It's late in the project to be giving it a name - but The Murder Lizard is now in full swing...
I forget they're not yet all that commonplace, but I can assure you the cassette looks completely normal on a giant monster truck wheel/tyre combination ;)
And yeah I shall be scaling grav walls.
This made me chuckle! I'll be jumping some sharks on this thing, don't you worry.
