New build

Postby Ypsylon » Fri Aug 17, 2012 2:55 pm

I'm building up a new bike and there's only one part missing before I can put it together. I figured I'd just start posting pics of stuff I do have and hopefully I get the missing part before I run out of stuff to post.

Feel free to comment or guess what other parts might be coming.

Part #1 is actually two parts. It's the Extralite Ultrastar II and a FWB top cap in the Sonoran desert design.

I'm using this combo on another bike and am pretty happy, but I used a different top cap with a steel bolt for initial setup.

Ah Bamboo frame from Vietnam with a custom seat cover depicting the "Bamboo" rolling paper graphics? Just kidding-although it's a build I'd like to do.

Sorry guys, this weekend was way busier than I expected, but I'll provide more pics soon, I promise.

And the part I'm missing is the hipster!

Yeah, it's a bit painful to look at all the sweet parts here and not be able to put it together.

That is a very good guess, but I do get a feeling you cheated, somehow. :wrong:

That's a pretty cool idea, but I can think of 10 other builds I'd do before I'd get to that. :grin:

Ok, that's pretty scary. I did pick up a Specialized CruX disc and technically that does miss one part, too. It's just the standard build right now like you can see it on the spec homepage, only that it's dirty.

Nice crankset! 8)

My first inclination would have been a CX bike but Im not sure I'd be brave enough to put such a beautiful crankset on to a bike that will obviously see some heavy duty labouring. :D

You have to be kidding me. You are still waiting for a BOTTOM BRACKET?!?!?

That just ain't right. Are they just not making them?

I'm pretty sure they are sitting on Jason's desk, next to Alienator's Clavicula. And I mean the crank, not the bone.
