Some of you who browse my Flickr will have already noticed this, but i finally got Emily's bike all built up. She transplanted her SRAM Force 22 group from her cross bike, and built up a set of White Industries/DT Swiss wheels with TRP's Spyre brakes. A very nice set of parts, and aesthetically very complementary. I am quite pleased with how it came out- the paint looks great, everything installed and set up without any problems.
Man, i love how small those 35mm cross tires look, even mounted to a wide-ish touring rim.
The sparkliness really comes out under direct sunlight.
Close up of the bottom bracket cable/hose routing solution. The cable guides are fully enclosed, allowing for lubricated sleeves and letting the brake line cross over without touching a moving cable.
All done! Now, on to Sam's fork project, wrapping up the long over-due Raleigh restoration, and then on to a bike for myself that is in the sketching phase. Thanks for reading and following the build, it has been a fun one.
