    Mr Brown Pants comes through again

    Mr. Brown pants brought the De Bernardi in a box today and I just finished building it up. Attached are some pics from the process. It is black ice conditions outside so I am not going to test ride it today. the list of components are;
    Phil Wood 36 Hole hubs w 14/15 spokes Mavic open pro rims Avocet tires
    Phil Wood 113mm BB
    Shimano Sora Cranks w/ Sugino 46 tooth chainring 16 tooth rear cog
    Sram PC-48 3/32 Chain
    American Classic Seatpost and Brooks Professional Saddle
    Nitto Cow horn bars and Nitto stem w/Tressoplast tape
    I had to think about how to block up the holes in the brake bridge and front fork. I hit the parts bin and came up with a low profile crome nut and carrige bolt for the brake bridge and the same for the fork crown but painted that to match on the fork. I wish that they had used a true track crown but there are probably enough people who use a front brake that it makes sense from a marketing and manufacturing standpoint.
    It seems to be a good mid level bicycle and the people at Yellow Jersey in Maddison Wisconsin http:\\www.yellowjersey.org were great to deal with as they did a free frame prep and checked alignment for the price of the frame alone. They gave me a good price, best I could find. Other vendors charged me for the frame prep so this was a great plus. Now if the weather would clear up and I can ride this thing. It does not look to good for a few days hearabouts. I will comment as soon as I can.

    Sweet looking ride. As far as the hole in the fork, you could always mount one of them pinwheel jobbies.



    Watch out for the Ad-Bot

    Beautiful bike. I feel your pain as to not being able to ride it. Couple inches on the ground and more as I type.

    I actually have somthing called a Cateye Cyclosimulator which allows you to mount a bike via the front forks and it has a resistance wheel for the rear wheel. It also allows you to increase the gradient up to about 10% and shows the speed/ miles/ calories/ ect. It is pretty good as far as stationary trainers go. Not the same as rollers as balance is not an issue. I may just get a set of rollers concidering what many people have said about them. I am letting some
    paint dry this pm before I mount it up and pedal off into the sunset, or basement in this case.

    Nice ride.

    The Yellow Jersey is a rad shop, with tons of track stuff in stock, and all the knowledge in the world to back up what they sell.
