edited January 2012 in Your road bikes
Decided i wanted to upgrade from my trusty Cube Attempt.. And rather than buy something regular of the peg decided to have a go at building something myself.
Hopefully ending up with better value for money and a one off bike .. All parts purchased over a few months when ever I saw something that i thought was good value for money.. Wheels and Tyres are off my cube.. Be gentle with me! lol

  • Nice bike. :) Not sure about the orange spacers. :!:
    It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.

    Do you have any problems with shifting? Gear /brake cables look a tad short. Other than that nice bike !
  • Took her out a couple times.. Shifting appears to be smooth and ok so.. Bit more clunky than the 105 on the Cube but hopefully I have not cut anything to short.. :D All instructions for the cables assume you are replacing old cables..

    I've just finished building up the same frame. Nice bike! Get her weighed, I'd be interested to see how mine matches up! I've got the 62cm frame in Green/Black.
  • Was hard to make my mind up between the Green/Orange frame both were nice. Orange just edged it for me.. I can't believe how nice a ride it is.. Really pleased with it.. Will weigh her as soon as i can.. and post it up.. Should take a bit more weight off with race tyres/tubes and Some lighter pedals.. :)
