My Isaac has had a lick of paint...

Postby CarpetFibre » Sun Apr 03, 2011 1:46 pm

Hi all,

My first post here, but I frequent the Weight Weenies board. :)

My frame has recently had a new coat of paint done beautifully by Carl at skunkworx: http://www.skunkx.net/page_1882145.html - after it had some damage done to the seat stay and had to be repaired.

Also thanks to Fibre-lyte for the 48T aero chainring. :cheers:

Beautiful bike. You gotta level out those basebars though. :wink:

What's with the silver brake shoes on the front brake? Or maybe that's the camera flash doin' something weird?
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

The bars are super-comfy pointed up slightly like that - that's how I roll. ;) - And yeah the front brake pads are off my old brakes as the zero gravity brake shoes don't clear the forks. :\

That's a really great looking bike.

The crank is just astounding and the way the rear brake follows the line of the seatstays, awesome.

Finished it today and weighs in at 7.4kg - not bad for a TT bike. Hopefully I should be able to ride it in anger tomorrow as the weather's looking good at long last. :cheers:

I had the same with mine, these brakes are minimalistic for sure. If you put an extra washer between the fork and the brake you can shim it a little so the pads clear the fork. If you mail 0G I think they'll send you a 'special' washer but really any brake washer would do.

The bike looks really good btw, very nice how you painted the cranks as well :top:
