My Soren Son

Nick’s the only one starting posts in this forum, but apparently I have the power, so here goes:

My Raleigh has been retired and it’s parts transferred to the new ride:

58cm square frame, built on the Gold Coast by Soren Son, repainted in a pearl white/blue fade by the builder at a later date. Frame material unknown, but probably 531/653. Forged dropouts, lugged of course.

Sugino Super Mighty 165mm cranks, 144BCD and 42t ring. Crank Bros Candy SL pedals. RSX short reach DP brake with kool stops and a tektro 'cross lever.

Built my own wheelset with 36h IRO hubs laced to Rigida rims via DT spokes, 16 DA cog/lockring, 28mm gatorskins.

Other wheelset is 28h Formula hubs/DT/Fiamme red labels/Clement Futura tubulars. Much lighter.

Stem/bars/seat/post are all slated for upgrades in the future and don’t warrant mention.

(Nick, if you want to grab the larger images from flickr and put them on your server, go nuts)


Spotted this at the Dinmore station commuter carpark and had a giggle:
