Major update on the 11:th of december, 2011.

The road bike is nearly done, okey there are a few hundred grams to shave on things such as brakes, levers and stem but otherwise I'm rather pleased...

The mountainbike has remained fairly unchanged except for a switch to 1x9...

The newest addition is a fun winter/spring project! A quite unusual, old school, italian Verlicchi Hardtail in full purple anodize! Will be built 90's retro mix style, maybe a little John Tomac inspired, drop bars and so forth...

Err, your rear brake is upside down on the T2? Otherwise quite impressed! I've got one as my winter frame and much as I like to change bikes all the time I just can't see the point in changing my Kinesis T2 for anything else.

Well, actually the rear brake is on backwards on full purpose, I even drilled the frame to be able to mount it that way. Partly because I prefer the looks and partly because it shortens the (otherwise long) reach to the point where I can mount a lightweight short reach brake...

I completely agree on the T2, changing to a no-name carbon frame would easily drop half a kilo pretty cheap, but I find I'm having a hard time motivating that purchase when it rides so damn well... :)
