Haven’t been on FOA for a while now so thought I would share my latest build.
I swapped a bunch of stuff with a friend a few months back and got this frame.
The frame is Christchurch built by Don Gibbs (same frame builder as my black Columbus Max frame). It was labeled as a Beckenham cycles bike and sold through their store, which has now fallen done in the earthquakes that hit Christchurch…
It is Columbus SL tubing and has a 54 seat tube and a retardly small head tube, 700c front and rear with rad chromed wishbone rear and forks.
Put cranks and headset on in the weekend. Used a strong-light headset off my Bauer but I hope to replace it with a nice Campy one soon.
Still need to get the seat post and chain ring polished as well as find a stem so I can run my old Nitto bull horns on. With such a small head tube I might stick to risers, not sure at this stage?
