    Grinduro bike.
    650b, Breakaway, rollercams.
    Started in plenty of time, 'finished' at the last minute.

    This bike appears a few pages back but I wasn't happy with the white powder coat so I got it painted properly in Molteni orange.

    That's a cool bike. Are the Ritchey Breakaway frame parts still available or did you get them a while ago?

    does the di2 work with mtb rear mech or have you hacked it so it does?

    Hi All,

    to introduce myself shortly:
    My name is Eike, I live in Germany, my english is poor.
    My first "race"-bike I got in a age of 11/12 or so. 24", 5 speed, cranks of massive steel, fenders, rack, lights, that kind of bikes you bought in larger department stores in the seventies. But it was golden metallic and I loved it. I loved it that strong that after 2 weeks I used the afternoon absence of my mother to tune it - says stripping everything of: fenders, rack, lights, etc. It brought me some trouble, but also a look of the bike somehow like I thought it should look

    Says: I tinker at bikes since a few more than 30 years.

    Until now, I was only reading here in this nice forum, but now, I would like to post something. Even, if in this world of perfectly done beauties, the following might fall a little "out of the frame" (german speech), it may be a little interesting for some of you… If not - please just jump over

    Inspired by the famous "Selberbruzzler" (and strongly supported by all of them and specially by their "advisors", the professional german framebuilders Georg Blaschke and Ulrich Vogel!!!) I started to build my first own frames.
    These had been recycling-projects.
    As it seemed to be nearly impossible to find bikes for children with acceptable weight for a fair price, I bought a race frame for 5,--€ on ebay and started to build a bike for my son for his birthday:

    IMG_2256.jpg
    IMG_2246.jpg
    IMG_2249.jpg
    IMG_2250.jpg
    IMG_2255.jpg

    Some issues occurred, because the drop of the bb-shell of an adults race bike-frame does not fit with 20" wheels. So the pedals clearance in fast curves is…. not perfectly save. But my son is grown out of this bike already without any crash in cause of touching the ground withe pedals. - He found other ways to painfully jump-of…
    Also lots of other errors…. But, it ended up at about 8kg, (what you by in germany for a fair price is between 10 and 12kg) lots of fun and my son really liked it. Best that could happen

    Best regards,
    Eike

    I went out for my first ride on my 650b all road bike today. This thing is a blast! It felt very solid and planted. I was going to try and avoid getting it too dirty since it'll stay unpainted for a while, but I couldn't help myself.

    This frame has been a long time coming. It sat idle for a couple years while I was workshop-less; getting it built up felt really good. I'm all set up in my garage now and can't wait to get back out there and work on my framebuilding chops some more.

    I am going to ride it paint-less for a while to really test it out, the fork in particular, before dropping the $$$. I'm confident in the fork's design but want to put it through it's paces first.

    This bike has a few framebuilding firsts for me:
    -First 650b frameset
    -First handmade dropouts
    -First handmade disc tabs

    This is also my first time trying tubeless.

    Anyway...thanks for looking!

    DSC01000.jpgDSC01003.jpgSince I started building my own frames I have been gradually replacing my old bikes by selling off the frames and transplanting the components to frames I have built for them. This is a late 1980's style road frame built up with early 1990s Campagnolo Record components which came off a red Eddy Merckx MX Leader frame. I still like 8 speed, the chains and cassettes are relatively cheap to replace.

    My current road bike. I just had it restored this year. It's hard to believe that this frame is over 30 years old.

    S1.jpgS2.jpgS3.jpgS4.jpg 1991 bike - Since I started building my own frames a few years ago I have been gradually selling my old bikes, sometimes transferring the parts onto one of my frames. I have a soft spot for this old mountain bike which I assembled in 1991 and it will be one of the last to go, if ever. Saracen Tange Prestige frame, 1" headset, 130 mm rear spacing, Answer Accutrax forks. I have serviced it a few times but it still has the original paint (I removed the decals). It has at various times been trail bike, road bike, commuting bike, shoved in the corner and forgotten bike and my son's commuting bike. It was 25 years old last month.

    New here so should probably show off my rides.

    First up is my main bike, Cervelo S5. This take most of the abuse:


    Time Trial duties go to the Shiv:


    This Fondriest was a bit of a fun project:


    This was my cross bike until this week, sold it on. Picking up a replacement Swiss Cross this weekend:


    Just realised that I don't have any photos of my track bike.

    DSC01637.jpgDSC01640.jpgDSC01642.jpgDSC01645.jpgI have been following the road bike rim brake/disc brake debate on here and elsewhere for a few years. I can't get excited about the aesthetics of disc brakes but, for my own interest and information, I decided to build myself a frame to take disc forks. The rear brake is a rim brake. Others have done this I know and I am aware of the advantages and disadvantages of not having a disc brake on the back. It prevents easy swapping to 650b wheels and fat tyres but the frame geometry is not ideal for this anyway. From my own point of view I have a frame which I may like, I don't know yet I only finished it this evening. If I don't I can just make a new steel fork and I have a new rim brake road bike.

    A few details - Reynolds 921 stainless steel, unpainted. Designed to take 700c x 28 tyres with mudguards but currently fitted with 700 x 35c tyres. Relaxed road bike (rather than gravel bike) geometry. 72.5 degree head tube, 73 degree seat tube, 45mm fork rake. The components, apart from the brakes which are new, were all transferred from another road frame which I was no longer using very much. I may change some of these later. Wheels - I built these using Hope hubs and Paul Components QR skewers and H Plus Son Archetype rims, 36 rear and 32 front. The disc is the relatively new Hope 160mm road disc with rounded edge.

    Just finished
    (Frame build finished already a year ago, then it went off for painting)
    Garage build to make the perfect fit for my wife (optical and geometrical).
    I like to build bikes visually proper.

    Very nice frame and bike! You seem to have two different forks?
