The 'what you've done to your bike today' thread

Changed the Kumo from 12" to 16" wheels for Eliana as she’s getting taller.

Just need to get her a front bar bag for all the rocks and gumnuts she collects. Avoiding a basket as shit just bounces out.

Have we met?
Do you live in Preston? My kid is Felix. My wife is Anna, We have a Bakfiet.
I met you at a park in Preston I’m sure if it.
I rode your cargo bike with the weird geometry.
Unless there is some other dad out there with a Kumo balance bike.

Yeah that’d be me, funny.

Wish I had a bike that looked pretty.much like that!

How are those brakes Mikdee? I’ve often wondered. Are they really that much better than CR720s or Shorties or something?

Every time I see it setup like this all I can think of is one of those DirtySixers, 36" wheeled MTB’s.

They feel about the same as 720’s with flat levers tbh.

But I needed these to work with the narrow spaced canti studs on this frame.

720’s wouldn’t work at all.

finally fitted the c17 cambium i bought off diddy, natural bar tape turned up also, bit darker but like the feel…the seat is hard but comfortable

Did you just buy the frameset online? Can’t really find anything local.

nah, this one popped up locally. I actually saw it pop up earlier this year but missed out. Then when i saw it pop up again over the weekend i nabbed it.

came with some interesting parts…but thats another story :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Have got the $0 pub bike rolling. Still havent nailed the magic ratio, need to take apart a few more cassettes and put a less dodgy chain on.

But… FUN

Also yes the front v brake is the correct way around (segmented crown polo fork that was free. Sadly only clears 2" tyres)
