SS Project

Postby Kwaichang » Fri Apr 12, 2013 9:09 am

Thought I'd throw up a few picks of the once fixed soon to be single speed that's a work in progress.
Initially thought I'd be using this bike as a coffee shop special...
With winter closing and my reluctance to get my carbon roady wet and filthy I thought this would make a somewhat decent winter trainer especially on this wet nasty days.

Frame is a Giant Bowery snavelled it of eBay for a bargain and has had a few transformations in its short life. Nothing too drastic.
Started with a Tioga Spyder saddle. This was my first mistake seat was too small and not very comfy. At the same time some Zefal toe clips / guides were added. Again just a cheap short term fix to get the bike up and running.
Initially the bike came in a fixed configuration.

Next step is putting on Tektro brake levers (hooded road type) and the rear brake switching the hub back to freewheel and new bar tape. Also putting the Prologo Kappa Pas on that I recently retired from my Cannondale.
Pictures to come...
