Seems like summer is finally around the corner.. After some heavy rains and being locked in a dungeon for work after I got around I was amazed by how green and beautiful the nature was around my commute.
But since I am no nature photographer I had to add my baby into the mix. She’s gotten a few updates since you last saw her. The risers fit my commute ride perfect. This bike rolls like a dream and none of my other machines compare. She’s a beaut!
I recently helped Susa (greatthings on instagram) build up this bike. Finding the frame was the hardest deal and it’s a 49cm Sparton ST500 I found on ebay from Hungaria with a Suntour Superbe chainset from New Zealand :D. Continental Gatorskins on Ambrosio Excursions laced up to BIA Dura-Ace hubs. MKS pedals & toeclips with custom toestraps. Flatbar with some brooks tape, a nice Tange NJS headset and a Rolls finishes the build up.
All in all this bike just like greatthings is a beauty! Rides smooth and really I’ll try to snap some more photos when the light isn’t almost out but here’s some pictures of the bike doing what it’s meant to. Rolling.
