nice bike, i nottice the conti is starting to square off a bit, so im assuming this is your street rig? if so how do the campy wheels hold up? not talking gutter dropping but general potholes and maybe some heavy skidding?
Cheers! I was looking at getting it painted pearl white but I am unsure now. Still a bit of the old silver paint I need to scrape off that you can see in the photos.
I have been running the rear Shamal for a few months or so but I have been riding it carefully (most of the time). I still pop on and off a few curbs but I do it fairly carefully. I still skid it normally but just not huge whip skids. So yeah it has held up very well, 1 cross both sides.
Oh the bitter pain of memories. I had a purple/maroon Bauer Max track frame about 4 years ago. It’s been cut to pieces and some parts/lugs are floating around Shifter Bikes. A big thanks to Bonnie Prince Billy’s Melbourne based uncle who sculpts balloons for running his piece of crap car into me.
shamals are fine on the street. I dont know why everyone always says they wouldnt do it. Ive been running a front on and off for ages, its banged up and still runs as true as any other wheel i own. I ride it everyday. plus is only got 12 spokes.
I also have a rear that sometimes makes an appearance (tub and i have skidded through the tyre so out of action atm). that has a little dent in it and is a bit rough but like the front is very true.
STOP taking all the good frames in NZ… save some for us!!!
It’s looking good, too bad I didn’t get the time to take it for a ride tonight! Let me try it next time!
You should give ppl here a preview on your new pick up!
Now, I need to find a new project for myself as well…
