Finally finished! most of it second hand but well pleased with the final outcome - really pleased with the Funn stem/bar combo for £25, also got a Surly stainless steel 32T chainring for a fiver - a very light, very nimble, very fast bike!







What forks do you have on that mate? Thinking about building up a SS for fitness.

Here you go mate.....

I had 120mm bouncy forks on and to preserve the geo of that set up I bought the 29er Gussets even though its a 26" wheel. Works perfect and feels great. They have taken all the abuse I have thrown their way so far...

Here's mine again, but in off road mode (rather than its usual commuting mode):

Heres mine, is my commuting machine, its a 90's Rayleigh I picked up for nothing years back, then most things have been changed on it for one reason or another, again with just old bits laying around, like steel flat handle bars from my wifes old bike. Its my commuter bike.

I had stripped it raw and covered it in Krust and waxoyl, but still once the salt was on the road it needed regular reapplication (winter before it was Krust and lacquer. but the salt got under that).



So I sprayed it black at christmas time (after hacking off unused bits like rack mounts and bottle mounts).



I want to go fixed gear, if I get hold of a disc compatible hub I'll bolt the cog on in place of the disc Smile


-and following my last line above I have now gone fixed, I got some 700C wheels off a friend, and they fit (after putting a wider axle on). Here it is (awaiting solving the brake and pedal situation -I needed a long drop calliper for the front).



Here it is after I hacksawed off the brake mounts, and painted the forks (and where If chopped of mounts):


I've now changed the bars, the paint on the frame wasn't holding up so I wrapped it with tape, cheapest easiest robust paint job:




oh and lastly, this is how it started life, (actually not my pic, but a google image of the same bike):

Heres the early stages of my ss build. Going to be using it for daily commuting to keep the miles off my Spectral and to hopefully improve my fitness.

Its starting as a real budget build but can see me upgrading parts when its fully built. Hope I can eventually get it looking as good as some of the ss builds on here.

So far the costs are...

Inbred frame inc Chris King headset- £50
Genesis bars - free from parts bin
Genesis stem - " "
Genesis seatpost - " "
Genesis saddle - " "
Deore cranks - £10
Deore BB - £6
On One rigid forks - £20
Ergo grips - free off my Canyon
Seatclamp - free
QR skewers - free
Hutchinson tyres - free stolen from brother
Deore brakeset - £25

I'm currently hunting for a cheap set of wheels for around £50 but am very tempted by the reet'ards on offer at £79 at On One.
