Dolan Build

Postby Meirionatron » Thu Oct 04, 2012 18:46 pm

I spent a while building this bike, I was on a small budget (ended up spending just less than £400 all together) so most parts were bought second hand, but I like this bike it is much better than my old 2003 Giant OCR :) The pictures are a little crappy but you get the idea. Let me know what you think :)

Brakes: Campagnolo Veloce (Used to have Shimano 5700 but they interfered with the gear cable adjusters)

Shifters: Shimano 105 5700
Cables: Jagwire
Front Mech: Shimano Ultegra 6600
Rear Mech: Shimano 105 5700

Looks good.

Head tube looks longer than I'm used to, but I'm short so more or less any headtube on my bike is as small as it can be.
