    Xero 26 inch wheels with road tyres
    Richey post and bars
    Shimano xt and deore
    100mm travel rlo forks
    Started out wiith some really tatty parts but decided to go hybrid as I don't go off road...just taught special needs daughter and her little sister to ride so wanted a comfortable ride to accompany them to / from school and shortish jaunts along the canals and river.

  3. DCLane

    DCLane Found in the Yorkshire hills ...

    I built this earlier this year as a snow & ice / 'dump it anywhere' bike:


    Raleigh SP150 frame / stem / seat
    Shifters / bars / rear wheel and rear brake from a Viking Targa DD24 that I'd bought for £10
    Front Manitou shocks which were a similar colour from eBay for £12
    Front wheel from eBay for £5
    Rear mech from my son's scrapped / bent MTB
    Spare bar grips from a Python Impact
    New Truvativ crankset and Shimano front mech - that blew the £50 build budget :blink:
    Bottle cage from a Decathlon Sport
    New orange cables

    There's a set of Ice Spikers to go on it for winter :cold:

    Actually found building my own bike quite therapeutic and satisfying...but definitely a learning experience. ..

    Originally built this up as a wet weather/around town bike, but when I moved I no longer had room for quite so many bikes, so I fitted a better set of wheels and it became my all-rounder.


    Peugeot PGN-10 frameset (Reynolds 501)
    Fulcrum Racing 7 wheelset
    Shimano UN55 BB
    Stronglight ST55 crankset
    Shimano PD-M530 pedals
    Shimano 8 speed cassette
    Brand-X seatpost
    Charge Spoon Saddle

    Pictured are Vittoria Rubino tires, but it's now running Schwalbe Ultremo ZX

    Cockpit and rear dérailleur are original after stripping down, cleaning and polishing.

  9. These are the bikes I've either built from the frame up or stripped right back and restored/rebuilt with a mix of refurbed and new parts.

    Very nice. What happened to the bars though? Did a car go over them?
