New commuter......c'est complet

Postby n4th4n007 » Fri Oct 12, 2012 19:48 pm

Bought the frame from Cycle Surgery and built it up myself. Love it. Geared at 47:17. Total price around 650. Just need to sort the bars out, need rotating round.

Looks really nice, the bars look very deep drop though. Maybe a bit of rotation is all that's needed but if you're uncomfortable in the drops I'd recommend some compact/shallow drop bars.

e.g.

I went shallow drop on my bike and it made quite a difference in comfort when on the drops. There are options around 20 quid if you struggle for stock in your chosen size.
