24" frame for 6'5" rider
that panasonic is aweeesome! let me know if you ever want to get rid of it
That thing looks awesome as a road bike, hairnet. :thumb:
hairnet can you please take a close up of the fork cable hanger setup? looks like a cable adjuster put into one of the origin8 hangers?
I have in-line barrel adjusters , so there is a piece of housing between the hanger and adjuster.
Tektro (think that's who I got it from) also sells those cable hangers with the barrel adjusters already in them. I think I got one from Niagaracycle for like $15, but haven't got around to taking it out of the packaging or using it yet.
that panasonic turned out nice hairnet. esp when you look at the before pic . http://www.pedalroom.com/p/panasonic-mc-4500-7932_1.jpg
are those the fancy new tektro levers (trp)?
Definitely the right bike for riding 37 miles in 25 mph winds with 35 mph gusts.
finally found a stem that I could fit the woodchipper bars on.. but now i gotta get a fork mounted cable stop.. man all these little things... at least i got the thumbies on without problems..:D :D though I did buy a longer bolt for them
Coming along nicely, Frantik! From this pic, the cane creek levers seem to be way off the bars, maybe not the best solution for the small handed among us? Or is that just the angle of the pic?
it's about 1cm farther out than the brakes on my road bike.. they are closer on the outside than the inside due to the angle of the bars. Cane creek offers a smaller reach version. But the cane creek ones are the same as Tektro R200A, just with lizards on the hoods lol
hairnet, did you get that frame on ebay?
