The New Bike

As some may have seen or not in my previous posts I have been toying with the idea of making some changes to my No Logo single speed. The bike was fairly cheap but I really like the steel frame and fork and the colour scheme is pretty smart (candy purple pics don't do it justice). The rest of the build was naff to be honest. Cheap flat bars / Heavy wheels / Low end chainset / Heavy tyres / Sadistic saddle etc.

Anyway here is the new and improved version:

Full spec:

Frame: No Logo Steel frame and fork
Wheels: Singelspeed Components / Shunfeng flip flop wheelset UPGRADE
Freewheel: 16t Dicta Freewheel UPGRADE
Chainset: Prolite 46t Sardina Shadow Chrome
Tyres: Panaracer Pasela PT 25c UPGRADE
Seat: Plush XSR1 UPGRADE
Bars: Onza Alloy 40cm Drop Bar with Karbonite tape
Brake Levers: Tektro Aero Drop Levers
Brakes: Shimano Sora front UPGRADE / Stock rear
Pads: Clarks 'V' Pads UPGRADE
Pedals: Shimano MTB SPD white

The above has knocked 3KG off (2kg from the wheels) so its now 9KG, total outlay including original purchase price is about £400.

She is super fast / smooth and very practical and almost maintenance free.
