Hi gang,

So happy to be back on big wheels. well here it is nothing flash, but serviceable and will do the job.

I have done some upgrade already in the pic, new bars/stem/levers bar ends/grips. (Syncros big fixed bar, Pro Stem, Sram 7.0 composite levers, RavX lock-on grips and barends). Specialized seat post & Ravx saddle.

More to come:2nd wheelset with '45 tyres, On-One carbon fork (still undecided on this 1 might keep for the next project, a gearey), and Avid BB7's.

Would love opinions, and yes it aint the flashest this around but neither is my budget any more, home loan & married life are getting in the way, and the fact i no longer work for a bike shop.

:thumbsup:

I like it.

Since you asked for comments - those composite levers will be uber-flexy. I had some 9.0s, they went back in the spare parts box.

Better off using some Cane Creek direct curves or Avids.

Thanks all

Hey gang,

New part yet to be added:
Isis Stylo 180mm cranks
On-One Carbon fork
BB7's
Maxxis ignitor tyres

Spare wheelset with Ritchey Vader 700x45's
And possible a swap to some direct curve levers I have on my 26 SS beater bike.

More question responces

Weight unknown for now, and yes its a 20 inch (large). I have short legs and a long torso, I prefer the longer tt of the bigger frame, I might go a 100mm stem later but for now I'm using a 90.
