Really nice those bikes, are you on Harris there?
Yes. Bottom one is at the Huisinis junction at Ardashaig. The Cross Check snap was at the turning point on this out and back. The fixed is back in Stornoway against the hospital lab wall.
Lovely looking build, do you hsve any info on the mizuno forks? I have a bike with the same fork and have not been able to find out much info on them. They seem to be quite well liked by those who have a set.
Bought the frame (onix rh) and built the bike up.Not seen another, probally why i got it !
Pretty smart that
1992 diamondback ascent ex. first bike i built
£25 plus post for frame and forks on e bay
£40 for 8 speed full deore lx groupset on e bay plus bars and stem (off a bike with a cracked tube)
£45 for the wheels and tyres mavic xm117. Think they tyres are michelin carbon somet or other
£2.99 for the bottom b on e bay
£20 for bottom bracket shell tapping and facing
£10 for cables
£9.98 for bottle cages
Not as fancy as some on here but good to get the understanding of building a bike and felt quite good that it all worked
Well done on the build, 'it's satisfying doing it yourself
My new Mercian, wheels, crankset and grips 'borrowed' from my Surly, will be buying a handbuilt set of wheels (silver), and silver/ grey crankset after my holiday in the Netherlands.
