My (semi complete) 2013 Pipedream Scion

Postby cavedweller » Thu Jun 13, 2013 18:43 pm

Hello all.

Finally got the winter project in a rideable state and though't I'd share it so far. Seems like a lovely ride, just took it for a quick thrash through the woods, however that was with the old forks, haven't ridden with these ones yet.

Annoyingly lost my job half way through the build so ended up using quite a few donor parts. As of today that problem's sorted so new parts here we come!

Excuse the lack of headset compression bolt and cap. I managed to snap the bolt by not having enough spacers.. I know, I know, rookie error! The steerer will eventually be cut down, just want to perfect bar height while I have the scope to.

Opinions needed - The Hope headset cups aren't aligned top and bottom and I think it's going to bug me. Would to remove and replace aligned?

Spec list so far:

Frame : Pipedream Scion 2013, Reynolds 853, 18"
Wheels: Hope Pro 2 Evo's on Mavic XM119's (built by me)
Forks: Rockshox Reba SL 2010 130mm travel
Seat post: Burgtec carbon
Saddle: Charge Spoon (not sure if this is staying)
Seat post clamp: Salsa
Tyres: Maxxis High Roller.

To replace:

Tektro hydraulic brakes : Hope Tech X2's
Shimano Deore chainset & shifters : Shimano XT
VooDoo stem & Bars : Easton Haven 2013 stem w/ Easton Haven 2013 carbon bars
Charge Spoon saddle : ???

Nice. 8)

I see what you mean with the headset cups. That'll bug me too. Get a lizard skins headset cover. You won't see the bottom cup then. Problem solved, lol

I'd ride it so the bottom covers with mud?

Just knock them both out and fit them properly.

An hour job, tops.
