Giant Krono, circa 1985, last of the steel Giants apparently, now a single speed.

Unknown (probably Aussie) maker, big, solid. Put the Suntour Edge cranks on for now to see how it fits, going for something more suitable soon (and not 53!). BLB sealed bearing hubs on deep V running a 17T fixed one side, 15T fixed the other. Got some platforms and SGB straps to alternate with SPD's depending on mood. Got a drilled fork that will fit straight on for braked use.

Yep. Identical geo and size as the bent one. Seller (most excellently) shipped this one down free as a replacement, and we agreed to bin the other one. Swapped the fork, headset and BB over and plugged the rest on. Stripped the paint off the fork when I was convinced it was fully chromed, so it looks good with the red frame.

Do videos count? Was trying out some different angles on this mornings ride

And I have gone back to flat bars, but I might need a bit longer stem.

Perth is flat. 50/16 pretty much covers the whole city, besides, still very capable as an SS. :wink:
