Love it. The wheels silver hubs and spokes with black rims look great with the cranks silver arms with black chain ring.
My Steamroller. Hopefully the chode stem + risers don't put me into jackass territory.
So mean... there's nothing wrong with a conversion... anyhow I'm pretty sure that frame is on the way out for the OP.
Nashbar Nekkid. Really fantastic bike, yes I realize it's silly that any single component on the thing is worth more than the frame itself, but hey, it rides great, what more do you want?
I want to build one up as a light aluminum/rain/commuter bike. How's the weight?
It's about 20lbs as pictured, and that's on a 58 cm frame with a fork that weighs about 3.5 lbs (real bad steel).
So, take what you will from that, I think it's pretty light, a 56 with a carbon fork could easily be around 16lbs depending on the build I think.
Been riding it like that for months, felt fantastic, noticed it only as soon as I took that picture, and now it is really bothering me. Funny how those things are.
Those are road drops I'm assuming? I'd angle the flat part parallel to the ground. Angled a tiny bit forward if that's your thing. I like that part for climbing and sprinting.
PS : Your bike is making me want a dark blue bike with either dark gray or silver wheels.
WTB Keirin frame in some kind of dark blue candy paint.
