Jim Bundy Neo-Retro

Postby humanbeing » Sat Nov 03, 2012 3:27 pm

I picked up my frame and wheels from Peter Bundy this morning :D
He made it for me from Reynolds 531, Prugnat lugs.
Chromed fork with 1" threaded steerer, orange pearl paint by Star Enamellers.
She's getting;
Campagnolo Athena with Ultra Torque Cranks and Chorus shifters
Chorus hubs with Ambrosio Excellence rims.
(thanks to DJInterg8 for the idea to use Veloflex Master 23 tyres-they look sweet 8) we'll she how they handle Sydney roads)
Work in progress and apologies for the crappy phone photos.
Cheers,
Peter

Tasty! So is it a Jim build or a Peter built frame? Some fine pedigree of craftsmanship in that family.

Peter's building the frames. He learnt frame building at his father's side and takes great pride in his dad's skill.
One time at the shop he was showing off the tube filleting that his dad had done recently just to show his dad still had it :)

Very neat, could almost be long lost cousins with my Olmo! Love the wheel build, I was looking for the Ambrosio rims too.

Let us know what you think of the tyres - being lightweight I can't see them lasting ages, but they're so nice and supple on the road and seem to have great grip. Roll real nice as well.

Love the way you've fitted this out. Really complements the frame. Keep us posted as to how it rides.

Thanks, took her out for 60km this morning and I was very pleased :D
Hopefully I'll get the chance for a longer ride this weekend cause a weekday ride isn't long enough.
Thanks for the compliments, this is a dream bike. I'm very lucky :lol:

G'day Brendan,
I was very impressed with the Olmo!
The Veloflex are great but I was blown away by how light they were when the package arrived, and pretty thin compared to other tyres I've used.
I'm not expecting much mileage out of them because I'm a puncture magnet, in which case I'll swap to something more durable and tougher.
Any suggestions for a puncture resistant skinwall/gumwall in 23?
Loving the Ambrosio rims but how are the H+ Sons rims? How's the wide rim, noticeable?
Cheers,
Peter

Were you doing the Gong Ride on this? Saw a Bundy that looked a whole lot like this, couldn't see the seat though 8)

I was looking for something more puncture resistant to start with, but these seem to be going well. I think the 320tpi thread and "anti-puncture layer" would do a pretty good job, but it's not a daily rider for me.

The H+Son rims are not too bad - built up fairly easily, rim joint is OK but maybe I'm being picky.. As far as the wider rim goes - my RS80s are 21mm wide and the Rubino Pro 23c tyres bulge a little, where the Veloflex on the 23mm rim are a nice and round profile. I run Velocity A23 rims on my commuter with Rubino Pro 25c and they bulge a little too. TB14/Veloflex combo looks good either way :)

I can't feel any difference in handling or comfort, but I haven't done any back to back tests with the same tyres on the same bike.

I say go with whatever looks best!
