Dude, what's with that mangled spoke.

and the combination of slack chain and S3X looks like fun for the knees

and what's with those combination flat/spd pedals we get your type in my shop, who stand by the pedal cabinet for 40 minutes trying to decide wheather to pull the triger on clipless then buy the combination pedals only to never use the flats ever again.


and is that one of those 20$ crane brass bells you weird beards go nuts for, for it's "soft inoffensive" tone, so you don't sound rude passing people on the multi use paths?

Agreed. That gutter demands practical application: mount it behind the seatpost, inspire awe.

it's actually carefully *cough* engineered, it stops a few inches above, and thus behind the bottom bracket shell, so the water drips behind the bb, the gutter is used in conjunction with a seat post mounted fender, I get a lot of snow where i live, full fenders get clogged up with it, and the bike lives out side in the winter, so overnight the snow/slush clogged fenders freeze up making my morning life crappy, the combination gutter/seat post fender thing actually works quite actually.

It looks like those tires could use some air.

all that from a guy who has a gutter on his bike?? I'm not even going to dispute any of your poor observations, because you wouldn't even comprehend.

tires are sitting in a gap between the driveway and foundation, thats why they look flat.

i actually like this build, looks practical.
super long stem looks a bit funny to me tho. chain looks a little slack, although some here argue it should be a little slack. but i would say that looks a little TOO slack. and is that a barend shifter? internal gear hub, huh? thought you could float a geared bike by us in SSFG, huh??? :D

Those bells are actually pretty damn loud.

Looks nice considering the weld. Looks like you kept the derailleur hanger which is good--were there braze-ons for downtube shifters? Do you have the original bar+stem?

There were, but were removed... and the bars and stem were both Cinelli, changed them though.

Robofunc 01-04-11 08:25 PM

It's a shame about the DT shifter braze-ons.

I see you changed the bar and stem. If you've still got the originals in your possession, I might be interested in buying them from you.

I'm 6'2 with arms like a gorilla, hense the long stem. The chain does not look that slack in person, but it does here. I guess I'll take a look at it tomorrow.

I think Brooks saddles are hideous, but the rest of the bike is A+.
