    Reassembled my beach bike finally. Needed some sanding + Rustoleum at the derailleur clamp area. Light green spots are just old patch jobs from a couple years ago. Right-side Veloce shifter from 10 years ago was missing shifts, so replaced the pair. New cables, housing, clean chain, frame all cleaned out and re-lubed. Mismatched tires because whatever. Old Faithful. Steepest gears I have now. 53/39 and a 13-26. I remember feeling depressed when I put the 13-26 on. Since then it has been a slippery slope. But I ride this. Gios Super Record.

    More backwards forks! Man I’m jealous. That might fit me, though. Just sayin’.

    I got this frame last year. Fedex liked it so much that the 2 day shipping became 8 day shipping. They were so sad to see it go that they dented the downtube. If they can't have it no one can! Mwahahaha!! They were pretty good about paying for the damage but I can't help but to avoid them now. While Nate had it he switched the cable routing so I could use hydro brakes. I told him he could paint it how he likes but I wanted splatter on it so that when I need to do paint touch ups I can do it in the splatter color. It's an S&S bike so it will need touch ups.

    My initial install of the barb and olive on the the front brake didn't go right so I needed to find new ones. Not really sure what I did wrong but it leaked at the caliper. After calling 5 or 6 shops I finally found one with Magura parts. The Magura barb and olive work just fine.

    I need to find myself a nice steel frame and fork to build up with 10s Campagnolo. Not sure where I will store it, but I'll figure that out later.

    Thanks. The frame was a late night eBay find that I overbid on but was the only bidder so got it for the minimum. Usually those things work out the opposite way. The rear end was cold set slightly asymmetrically & at 129.99999 and obviously the green/blue metallic isn't model correct, but the paint color is nice and the bike is made to go no matter what the surface of the road is like. Gios stamp says it is a 61cm but the top tube is 57cm and 61cm is c-t, so it rides more like what I'd call a classic 59cm.

    So, this is different. The COO of Thomson is, apparently, neighbors with Shaq. So Shaq's bike ended up at Thomson to get some repairs and stuff, and it had a few broken spokes so my buddy there called me and had me replace the spokes.

    Y'all. This bike is eff'n HUGE. 36" wheels. Nickle plated fillet brazed frame and truss style fork. Rohloff rear hub. 220mm cranks. Big ass custom grips - they're about the same diameter as a soda can. When I'm standing on level ground next to the bike the grips hit me right in the shoulder.

    FYI, Shaq can sit on this thing and put both feet flat on the ground *with* a little bend in his knees.







    Also, those wire bead Vee Rubber tires were the biggest PITA to remove of any tire I've ever worked with!!!

    You may need two or three Co2 canisters to get that wheel to pressure :amused: hopefully those will run at low pressure

    The rear wheel had a latex tube with an alloy valve. Who'da thunk that was available in a 36" size....

    Also, Mike looked up replacement tubes - $38/each. Ahh!
