    Old hubs, new hubs




    Rear tyre and frame clearance. You may put a fiver in, but you won't get it back!

    Enve 4.5 tubulars with custom decals


    Every Friday we sit down as a team to have Fish And Chip Friday lunch but with Gavin away racing tomorrow we brought it forward a day


    The 80mm Maker is a new rim for us and not one which we expect to build a lot of, however it’s nice to have the option.

    I could only keep it for 5 hours, including the wheelbuilding, then it had to go...








    Then it was time to go!





    Some other steel, too (actually, finished yesterday)

    A perfect candidate for a 650b conversion.

    Knowing that guy, it will be utter heresy!

    In England there was this fashion back in the day, "fag-paper clearance". Thankfully it didn't last very long

    Is that an old mkm track frame? I had one of their road frames back in the day. Wish I still had it.

    Did a wheel swap on the MXL. Off with the fulcrum 5 on with the Campy Atlanta wheelset. No good reason to do it other than the fact that the Atlantas look pimp and are period correct.

    Yes, it's an MKM and has been restored keeping it as it was: a TT/Track frame with 120mm OLD, RD hanger and a single boss for shifter on the D-T.
    That T.A. chainset is giving us a bit of trouble in finding the correct axle length, a 122mm Shimano UN55 +2mm spacer on the Rh works fine, but it's not period-correct.... this fella doesn't mind spending any money as long as the bike is perfect

    That tool board pegs the meter over in the "how pro are you" thread. Just totally drool worthy.

    Oh, nice bike. But there hundreds of bikes in that wall.

    Rock on.

    Such a great tool for a thousand things. Used mine all the time. Not so much for forks, but it would put leverage where you needed it.

    I am building up my friends new Meriwether Fat Bike, it is super nice.




    All that is left is to cut the brake cables and bleed them .

    I'm currently geating this back together in preparation for the new one to arrive - which might sound odd, but I've promised Mark I'll do a back-to-back comparison to feed back on how each rides Vs the other. As I've not ridden this for a while so I want to make sure that feedback is valid and accurate, not to mention done with the same wheelset.



    Having loved my Gaulzetti so much in recent months, I'm intrigued to remind myself how this feels.

    Rich, the wood on those frames reminds me of a Chris Craft. So please wear a blue blazer, khakis, topsiders, and captain's hat when you pose with the completed machine. And break open a little bottle of brut when it's launched.

    Bon voyage!

    I knew I should not have bought a bike without tubulars.

    image.jpg

    Patching a tube for the first time in probably 30 years. First fat bike flat after just 25 miles. If this is a glimpse of the future, I'll have to investigate running tubeless. Ugh.

    Using the mighty Myford to remove the chamfer on a 30mm socket so it doesn't slip and damage suspension fork topcaps. It's been years since I've played with mountain bike suspension and I'm really impressed by how easy the new Pikes are to work on.
