BeOne Raw Pro (again!)

Postby nweststeyn » Sun Feb 12, 2012 20:33 pm

So I had a BeOne Raw Pro...

I built it, then made some changes, then a few months later the frame broke. BeOne were good and replaced it under warranty... So this thread pretty much now documents my BeOne journey to the present day...

First one

Then...

And then...

And now...

I've made some changes and 'refinements'...

New wheels - Campagnolo Scirocco
New tyres - Vittoria Rubino Pros
New bartape
New saddle
Changed to Look Keos

And made some plugs out of Champagne corks from bottles cracked open to celebrate my fiancé and I's engagement.

Looks great, was drooling over one that was waiting for a fitting when I went into my LBS a few months ago.

There definitely aren't enough green bikes around.

Like it.
Much better, them blue tyres.... and those other wheels ...
I agree about green bikes, there should be more.
Best I saw was a Pinarello in black and green in JEJames years ago that was Zabels colours at the time and I don't even like Pinarellos so it must be good in green.

Thats a bit worrying!

If it was unprovoked thats a serious quality issue.. especially when the chainstays are supposed to be nice and stiff/strong for power transfer!

Thought I'd better say on here that BeOne have agreed to replace the frame under warranty, which is good...

Glad to hear that. Would still be worried though whether this as a one off or a design/quality/build issue as could well happen again (fingers crossed it won't)

I much prefer that to the old colours.

So you're keeping it? Are you sure? :P

I have no idea what's going on here.

Yeah... it's really bonny - as soon as I got it out t'box I knew I was gonna keep it!

Gotta just hope and pray the issue before was a one off!

SO HERE WE ARE

BeOne Raw Pro (take two!)

Image

Thar she blows. Switched to my silver Campag wheels as I think they look classier with the white - but need a new set of matching tyres (my other set of tyres is green to go with the old bike!). Also need to replace the Veloce rear mech as it doesn't seem to be running very smoothly and I think its ever so slightly twisted from the mishap with the previous frame.

The bike shed is complete again!

Thanks Declan! :D

A few upgrades to make and I'm also keeping my eyes peeled for a nice vintage like your BSA Goldenwings as a 2nd bike! One modern, one classic...

Looks good -> I wasn't sure of the colour when you first posted pics of the frame, but looks great now!
