New Commuter

Discussion in 'Photo Gallery' started by WindyRob, 2 May 2008.

  1. The frame on the bike i was using to commute broke, it looked like this:

    Orbea didn't have a like for like frame and up graded it to one that is almost twice the price:

    which incidentally i now have to sell (price is £350 plus postage, forks included)

    but i thought that this was too sporty for the ride back and forward to work and wanted a work horse that would be comfortable and practical so this is what i have built from the components from the old orbea enol:

    i have had to change the front mech, chain, tyres and brakes, the guards came from my other bike.

    i have called her Lady Grey, there is a certain satisfaction in a home build, i think she looks lovely I hope you do to!?

    Not all that close
    All the Thorns I've seen in the past look a little ... errr ... curious. But yours is lovely.
