Vintage, yesteryear and retro biking
PINNY IS ON THE ROAD
I ordered a C Record straight sided FD & it was larger & wider, than the Super record .
So Ive reused the SR/FD shimmed it into the "braze on" exactly the angle I want it to sit, then I reduced (made another) tube for the base of the FD between the two rails.
This narrowed the whole affair about 3mm, enough to clear the flat sided crank, to a ride able standard, for my weight at least.
Had my first ride & its similar feel to any good bike, just some tweaking & newly restored 3TTT bars will follow the first bar tape change.
I have recently acquired the correct brake levers to match the Deltas, & a vintage Brooks Flyer so they will go on at the same time.
THANK YOU to all the forum for your help,comments & ideas. I have learnt so much here.
Ooops should have had the curtain closed.
Its a 3 bay with a 4th section on the side & car lift. Yes its admired often, but a borrowed camper & daughters 17ft boat live there at the moment.
Cramping blke space
Stem is a 50mm Sunshine, possibly spoils the look a bit, but it suits my small frame as well, I have a set of 3ttt old bars to follow with a 70mm stem & Campag Delta levers. Just at the moment I like the drilled levers which matched the drilled crankset, but I have moved the crankset sideways ,its a 53/44
too strong on the hills for these old legs! Once the Noosa E'roica is over I'll refit it & avoid the big hills.
