My first serious attempt at something I can use on local trails and an attempt to beat off the winter flab.

Had to put the Suntour Sprint cranks on it, cause the Edge cranks didn't give me the right chainline on that BB. 52T ring for now, till I get a 46.

Not yet finished. The cable ties on the top tube need replacing with proper cable clamps and the brakes replaces with some with a longer reach.
It would not be at all strange if history came to the conclusion that the perfection of the bicycle was the greatest achievement of the nineteenth century.

I thought those Evil Residents were made to suit 39-49mm calipers, but I guess you couldn't run guards if they were. Is it just me or is it a tiny-bit-sloping TT?

I can tell you as a fact that standard Tiagra brakes don't fit (unless you want the calipers working on your tyres. I have some 57mm Miche calipers on order from Wiggle which should fit. There is a slight down slope on the top-tube. As the brakes aren't working I haven't really ridden it, except for up and down the drive but it feels light (around 10 kg), fast and comfortable.

That looks so sick. I'm in the process of building up an early Apollo aluminium MTB with a roughly similar frame but your beasty is many levels up. What brand is it, i can't quite make it out?

It's a 1994 DBS Kilimanjaro.

DBS (Den Beste Sykkel) is the Norwegian Malvern Star, there are some seriously weird old dbs bikes on the web if you dig for them. My frame is just an ok steel estay, nothing amazing but I love it all the same.


They still make bikes... are you ready for the greatest cycling related website in existence?

Pretty generic from the looks. Good bang for buck at about $540 delivered though http://www.cyclingexpress.com/cycle/cle ... pista.aspx

I got her for $400 delivered several weeks ago from Cycling Express, been watching for months. I bought her to ride on the track when the season starts but I couldn't wait so today I chucked on an old 105 brake, 105 pedals and changed the wirebead Kenda Koncept tyres for Michelin Pro3's, and lookin' forward to a decent ride tmoz. As for spec, the Azzuri site is a bit vague. Ally frame, carbon fork. FSA seat, headset and guessing stem and bars? Andel RSC1 165mm 48T 3/32 cranks, Alex R450 rims laced to Novatech sealed bearing hubs (flip-flop fixed-fixed) 16T fixed supplied, 3/32 chain. Don't know why 1/8 running gear wasn't used? :( The frame a 53cm TT as per site specs but measurements are 51cm TT C-C, so a little small :?
For the price I can't complain but I really won't know till I put her through the paces. But comparing it to the CELL fixie (piece of showtime) I bought for $250 the Azzurri shits on it :)

Just looking at the web site and they might have sent you a small instead of a medium?? Might be worth contacting them to see if they can sent you the right sized frame. Hope she works out for you on the boards mate.

Thanks PeteV,

I looked at the size chart on Azzurris' site and the seat tube C-T measures 48cm (med). The frame had 'M' stickers on it too. It's that top tube that has me stumped :?
Anyway I'll try her out on the track and if she don't work out I'll sell to a kid :lol: couldn't be stuffed going through the drama of sending back to change :roll:
