    On 3 Wheels
    My latest build,


    Raleigh 'City' converted from 26" wheels to 700c with rims 'handlaced' onto the original SA 3spd and a Shimano front dynohub, crank converted from a cottered steel to a square taper 'Stronglight' using the original Raleigh cups (26tpi) Handlebars are Ergotec 'Toulouse', and the brake calipers are Weinmann (instead of the 'pressed/bent steel' originals)

    Cinelli Experience frame
    Deda stem
    Cinelli MASH bull horns
    Deda Parabolica aerobars
    Cinelli Cork tape
    Cinelli Neos seatpost
    ISM Adamo Tri seat
    Campagnolo Athena groupset
    Campagnolo Bullet 80s
    Vittoria Pro 3s
    Look SPD-SLs
    Lifeline brake cables
    Campagnolo gear cables
    Campagnolo cable housing
    Campagnolo brake pads

    I can't recall the brand of shifters but they are friction, nor the brake levers.

    Looking to strip the wheels of the logos and put black circles on. And revert to drops.

    Another self build, bought as a box of bits. Sadly when purchased I wore my rose tinted specs, everything except the frame was rubbish so I spend an age and a small fortune seeking out the correct components for this

    It's not 100% my built. Bike shop finished it - put BB in place and both derraileurs. And set up gears.
    But the rest of it has been done by me. Frame and fork bought from eBay, Mavic Crossride wheelset from CRC, Formula Oro K18 disc brakes and XT groupset - CRC and eBay.
    Alas I didn't find any good MTB tracks near Sittingbourne so I sold it about a month later after I built it.
