YES! That looks great. Good times ahead.

Banger.

Look at that perfect dropper length.

It’s juuuuuust Right.
Maybe a few mm too high… But nothing a thicker pair of socks can’t fix.

TBH mostly I just sit on it fully dropped at the eaglemont pump track with me mates smoking darts and spittin in the dirt

It’s a whole new thing tho. Taking a while to dial every thing in. Never used Shimano triggers before. I reckon I’ve shifted their position at least 10 times. Can’t find the perfect spot for them.

Oh and a tip if any of you buy a bike off bicycles online.

It comes ‘partially’ built.
I basically pulled it apart and put it back together for peace of mind.

Nothing was greased except the bb.
And the calipers were pretty much finger tight.

Also, first time bleeding brakes. That shit is sooo easy and satisfying. Seeing those lil bubbles com up mmmm.

Got a voucher for Wiggle from work and took a gamble on some new tires for the Cinelli. The Conti Ultra Sport 23c were a nightmare to get on/off, especially while on the side of the road. One of the reasons I stopped riding it as much too.

Took a gamble on some 28c Lifeline Commuters. Wasn’t sure what the max clearance was for the forks, and couldn’t really find anything online. I was able to put them on without a lever, and they only just fit. SOTB here we come!

:open_mouth: hope you’ve got stiff wheels!!

a new set of GP5Ks on the Stinner, definitely happier with the black over the gumwalls for this build

Geared up for SOTB. Bar tape to reuse for a third time is in the bag. Chain needs to lose a link or two to go to 14T fixed side. Finally got a home for my Criterium bars. First person to comment on lack of seat wins an eye roll.

dont need a seat when you’re doing bar rooters down collins st.

New b17. Ohh the joys of breaking them in :roll_eyes::roll_eyes::roll_eyes:IMG20200907200932

Put new gravel king’s on my new wheels. Building up a Ron Mitten Michalo frame. Fair to say 32s are a very snug fitIMG20201004134506
