so funnily enough my private workshop is called the skunkworks after all the expensive and mostly black bikes that find them selves been built or serviced in there
and here is my logo
which of course i have small frame stickers made up of in a matte black on white roundel
any way back to the build.. it is of course another parlee z5 but this time its an SLi and in a small.. as i was running a 90mm stem and felt a little stretched out i went for a small instead of the med i had been riding and got a longer stem
and now the photo bomb
happy new bike day
not too bad
with the crown race installed
a bit of scale work
Aican cable install needed a little work around.. line the frame with cable liner not old cable from the back
starting to look a bit like a bike
stripped the 3t ergonova LTDs to match the blackness of the build
wheels and a bar pos adjustment!
so i'm waiting for my cranks to return from the paint shop where the clear is getting a touch up which should be in a few days
also i totally plan on getting EPS V2 in a month or so, so the mech SR is only a short term setup
Then you need to find a way to make the stem matte though it matches the cables
Man, I wish I never sold my Emporelli cages.(keep them forever) Too bad they don't make them anymore.
Did your Berk Combo have plenty of length with the smaller frame?
How did you do the housing?
(with no cable stops, did you run "b-cables" the whole length?......rattle????
So the are getting a new clear coat
All the shifters, cables stem seatpost clamp etc are gloss black
And the cranks and saddle shell are gloss 3k
I quite like the different blacks Going on.
The berk combo was angles and length wise always
Built for this frame so it has a 400mm post. More will come off the steerer but I need to ride it first
Going to get another berk combo when the EPS comes along using the new channel saddle shape and with the EPS charge cable built in under the front of the saddle
I installed the BB last night just waiting for the cranks so I can get the front mech in the right place, throw on a chain, the rear bottle cage and some bar tape.
As for rattles and Aicans they have the foam noddles that came with the frame and seem to be ok right now.. Of course I have to ride it to know for sure.. I might get the fork off once it's all together and get the noodle position perfect and then cable tie em on.
