    DB,

    What RD are you running there? 10 in the back? How are retro grupetto adventures? So many questions!

    Hi Shojii
    Its a SRAM X0 10 speed, with Veloce Ultrashift 10 speed Ergopower. Shifting is decent, but not quite consumer-worthy.
    Im not doing so much with old bikes but we get them out for a gallop occasionally.

    Not my bike but the story of a resurrection.

    It started with this Surly Crosscheck mounted as an SSCX.


    Then this happened. A car caught fire in the shared parking space.



    Owner decided the first bike was definitely dead but there was still hope for the crosscheck as some of the paint was still showing and he managed to disassemble everything without too much fuss.

    Here it is now. Bar a few exceptions such as the grips, saddle, wheels and tires, all are the original parts mounted at the time of the fire.

    Woah. That came out looking incredible. Really nice job bringing it back to life.

    Agreed. That's the surliest looking surly I've ever seen.

    Does anyone know how safe it is to be riding stuff that's been in a fire? I'd be a little nervous, especially about the cranks, but I don't have any data to back that up with.

    I would say that if there was any amount of paint left on the metal, you're probably safe i.e. the temperatures were not extreme enough to alter the integrity of the alloy. *armchair opinion*

    that bike is sweet. would ride proudly. *expert opinion*

    This is a sram force crank. Carbon.

    Not sure exactly the kind of temperature it has endured and if the kind of epoxy used on those parts would have suffered. I read somewhere that somehow a layer of carbon fiber actually reflects heat which make it moderately fire resistant.

    So cool. I can just hear the grease in the BB bubbling.

    The two bikes were so close it makes me wonder why the first was definitely toast.

    Definitely looks the part! Any further description beyond being fun?

    Solid, and a lot like the two 650b Gravelators that Ive built for myself. Feels like you've got enough rubber on the road to need knee scrapers.
    Ive used that drivetrain combo on a few bikes. The rear shift is not quite consumer standard, but good enough for anyone who grew up with friction shifting

    Nothing says Surly quite like Campy shifters and FD, SRAM RD, a White Industries crank, and Paul's brakes...
    "As an homage to the EPOdays of yore- I'd find the world's last remaining pair of 40cm ergonomic drop bars.....i think everyone who ever liked those handlebars in that shape and in that width is either dead of a drug overdose, works in the Schaerbeek mattress factory now and weighs 300 pounds or is Dr. Davey Bruylandts...who for all I know is doing both of those things." - Jerk

    Do you think could I put 26 x 2.4" wheels in the Midnight Special?

    Then I could simply move the parts from my carbon hardtail over....

    How you like the Klampers with the Campy levers? Are they the "Campagnolo pull" version?

    Pretty good once I bought a couple of the Campagnolo specific actuating arms. When I had the same calipers with the same brake levers and stock Klamper actuating arms on my Straggler they were better than BB7 Road but not outstanding.

    Have you weighed the bike? Just curious.

    I have no idea. There was a shameful incident a few years ago when a bunch of then V-Salon regulars piled-on a newbie for asking about the weight of steel frames. After that, Id never dare.
