Hah, somebodies' glamour shots.

Imagine XTR PDR 9000 pedals, that's what I am using.

Our build will look eerily similar though.

FWIW The Niner CF fork looks like it was made for this frame.

It will be used in Duluth for the most part, but I hope to take it up to the cabin in Ely at some point.

The trail system in Duluth is the best in the midwest. imho

Finally ordered a chain wear indicator. It came in the mail today. I tested out about 15 bikes. The chain on my Pinarello Record was the only one that was bad.

I wonder if, at my age, and with the number of bikes I have in rotation, I will ever really wear out a chain again...

Exactly. Usually the only time I put on a new chain is if I am increasing the number of speeds so I need a different chain or I am building up a frame from scratch. With so many bikes I don't spend a ton on tires either since each bike doesn't get ridden a lot. I have been buying Rubino Pro 3 tires which run about $20 each from Ribble. I have had very good luck with them.

Hi 3speedslow, here are photos of the initial build. I swapped in a pair of wheels I built earlier, Sanshin front and Maillard rear track hubs with tubular rims and tyres. Still have to rebuild the Airlite hub wheels that came with it. I also used a different stem, bars and seat post that I had in my collection of parts. Sorry about the spare tyre in the photos, I was looking for a spare toe strap to secure it under the seat for a test ride. Will probably refinish when/if I ever find out it's parentage. Chrome came up fine on forks & stays. Now I need to practise my track stands, sprints and clipping in, prior to my day's professional coaching at Herne Hill Velodrome. I'm really happy with the fit and incredibly grateful to the generosity of BF C&V members.

old pedaled,

I would ride that in a heartbeat ! Super looking job there. Airlite hubs, wow. I am still trying to get around to building up my Dunlop-Racelite hub combo for my Gran Sport.

Track class? Teaching or taking... The velodromes just aren't't around here or I would grab my track bike and do the class.

Thanks for the build up pics, hope you determine the history. Still a super example of an early track warrior.

iphone have camera controls on the left hand side when the phone is held vertical. The volume up/down buttons double has shutter buttons. When taking a picture in landscape mode those buttons must be on the bottom. iphone's 'assume' the buttons are always on the bottom landscape mode even if they're on the top. If the buttons are on the top in landscape mode your pictures will be messed up.

I like how they blame it on Microsoft but the problem started with iphone 5's...not 2's 3's or 4's.

Easypeasy - took about two minutes. I did take photos of most of the process, but small screwdriver at one end to push pad one way, tab of 'holder' the other way. Used bigger screw driver to bend tab some more and pry out old shoe. Then long-nosed pliers to bend tab down some more. I used a wee bit of liquid soap on pad to facilitate pushing the pad into the holder. Had to wiggle things a bit to get the pad to pass the head of the bolt, and to get the back half of the notch in the back of the pad past the tab. Once in I rinsed the assembly to get off any stray soap, and then used some largish arc-joint pliers to squeeze the tab back.

I would suggest that the end of the holder that was bent be to the rear of the bike in the unlikely case that it should break off. (If you want photos, I'll put them up.)

(Addresses hidden to protect the innocent.)



Carefully packed



For SWIMPAL's bike. Now all I need do is get some cables, some adjustable down tube stops, and figure out how to put it all together!

Thank you, Tim!
