The new bike is close to complete

Well.  Sort of. It is close to completely order. Tonight I ordered most of the Group set components. This is the stuff that lets me put my massive leg mussels to work and transfer that into the bike (ok little over doing it there)

So the shopping list is

I know the front Derailleur is missing but need to check the size of the frame when it arrives.  Didn’t have the guts to take a punt on it.

Other good news Jordan Brock has offered to loan me a bike so with any luck and providing I can sort out a time to get around to his place this week I may make my return Saturday or Sunday.  Can’t wait 🙂

Another Frame Has Been Ordered

Ok after the last week I have gone ahead and ordered the frame previously mentioned. Cinelli 2010 Estrada Frame Module – Blue

It is actually a lighter frame than the other Cinelli frame I ordered last week. This one also comes with the seat post, Bars and stem. So all up actually a better purchase. Now I need to organise the group set. After Ultegra 6700 Groupset.

Currently out of stock, Also need BB30 Adaptors apparently but Peter is looking into this (I’m outta my depth) So taking the steps to get back on the bike. Not a cheap exercise. But I stripped everything Off the Oppy C5 on Saturday. Looks a sad state now.

Bike Update

Well I ordered a frame and Friday night it was cancelled. Tonight I ordered wheels and then they emailed and said they don’t have them. Peter got me hooked on another frame but is a six week wait. Too Long.

Looking at this one again. It’s light and has the bars stem and seat post included. Its not the sexiest looking thing but it should go fast. What do you think. Feedback please.


Please leave feedback I need reassurance please
