Time to stop lurking

Been hiding out here for a little while just lurking… Time to make my virgin post I suppose :stuck_out_tongue:

Rossin road frame (track ends by Abbotsford Cycles)
Honda Deep Amethyst Pearl paint
Velocity wheels
3TTT bars
Eggbeater C
And all the Shimano 600 bits’n’bobs off the original bike

Got a set of Oval bullhorns sitting in front of me right now… Polished up nicely, but I"m not sure if I want to swap them over just yet…

Welcome Snuffy.

I have two things to say:

  1. How much did Abbotsford charge for the track end conversion?
  2. is that an aus.bicycle spoke card?

Seconded about the track ends. Abbotsford in my main LBS and they’ve never said anything about conversions, but then again I’ve never asked either! How long ago did you have them done?

Indeedily that is an a.b spoke card…

Track ends were done a couple of months ago… Tis quite a neat job - might take a close up photo of them tonight (if you want), since I’ve got a rear flat to fix…

Not 100% sure about the cost though, since it all came in one big bill (track ends, spray job, remove downtube shifters, respace rear), but it was somewhere <$150…

Don’t know what it’s made of, but it seems to be surviving quite well, so it’s not overly soft…

  1. Are you coming along on Saturday?


Not this week… I’m doing my good deed for humanity at the local hospital…

No brakes (sic) for Christmas right? If so, next weekend might be a possibility… :slight_smile:
