Weird. My post did not upload but lets' give it another try. Again, post is worthelss w/out pics.
One more for the road.
Very clean....I like...
Are you running cyclocross cranks? How do you like those midge bars, especially on the hoods? I've got the old WTB Dirtdrop bars that I'd like to try on my LHT one of these days....Very nice setup.
Yes, they are cross cranks. Actually all the parts except for the wheelset came from my cyclocross bike. I will be changing the cranks in the future for a mtb crankset for a more wider range in gearing. So far I am enjoyig the rideOriginally Posted by The Fixer
Oh yeah, I love the Midge bars. I really like the flare and the short drop and reach. Awesome control in almost any situation.
Nice! I'm hoping to build one myself sometime soon. Seeing yours is inspiring me to get that project started.
I know what you mean. It took mine forever to build but once I got the parts together the build moved faster. Oh, make sure you get the longest available derailleur cable for the rear. Because of the longer stays and to get the proper bend for the cable housing I have to tweak both cables and housing to make it reach the rear derailleur bolt.Originally Posted by BlueBikeRider
Those Midge bars look really sweet.
Interesting. I have a 62cm LHT and the cables that came with my barcons were plenty long enough. I cut at least 2 inches from the font cable and at least 3 inches from the rear cable.Originally Posted by Pigtire
I wonder if the stock cables that came w/ the barcon package are longer. I used aftermarket cables for this ride. The longest I can locate are 2000mm.Originally Posted by wsexson
Nice one!! I love the looks of an LHT.
Neat lookin' bike but enlighten me ........ I don't know what cyclocross cranks are? How are they different?Originally Posted by Pigtire

Before they came out w/ a cross specific cranks(i.e smaller chain rings) it's just road cranks with smaller chainrings installed. Mine are Ultegra crank arms w/ 46/38 rings.
