    Club Fuji beater buildup....

    I decided it was time to get the thing off the wall, and start building it. Some of it's original, and having a second identical bike helped with parts. The funny thing though?? I jumped on it, and after a few fitment issues, this is a very sweet ride! The ride is very supple, and bumps get soaked up well. I actually stood up and did a short dash, the frame didn't flex near as much as some of my other bikes. Quad butted tubing thing I guess? It's nothing fancy, just wanted to show off my work for this weekend.

    I changed a few parts to make it mine... Suntour Cyclone FD/RD, 600 aero levers, Sakae Modolo bars, new yellow housings, and rims are Suntour Sprint hubs and Arayas that came from a friend's Nishiki Medalist. Tires are Serfas Secas. Not gumwalls I know, but they're hard to beat. I've never had a single flat on any bike I've installed them on. Ever!,,,,BD

    The one good thing about black cork wrap is that it's better than nothing.

    Nice job! I like it a lot better with that back bar tape than with the yellow they came with. Much improved, in my opinion!

    Thanks, I should take another pic. The seat was too far forward, as well as tilted forward to boot. I had to raise the seat post another inch or so also. Amazingly enough, I looked closely at the pedals earlier today, and they're Suntour Cyclones, hehe. So far most of the bike is Suntour now. The stem is an Atax that came off a Peugeot somewhere down the line. I got it from the same person as the rims.,,,,BD

    I need some suntour brakes?

    I can't tell what brakes you have now.

    Very nice beater

    They're Dia Compe 400 size calipers, but not the ones that have the 400 stamped in them. They stop extremely well with the Shimano 600 aero levers. The brake pads are the originals, and got the concrete
    drag to break the glaze. They stop like canti's!,,,,BD
