All built on the cheap with bargains from Ebay and here, only new bits were the BB, chain and shifters.


  • Did you figure out the BB in the end?

    Not really, still a bit of a mystery.... :?

    My frame has the english threaded BB so I plumped for the Shimano Ultegra one. Other than that, I still wouldn't know what a BB30 is if it hit me in the face.... :lol:
  • Probably need to straighten those bars, and how do you find riding without pedals?
    I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles

    It's okay downhill.... Anything else is a nightmare. :?

    I'm still tweaking it as I go but I felt the bars were okay so far, mind you, the pic does make them look like they've drooped a bit.
