spot of snow on the commute today. one of the last rides on the 1x1 as a 29er too- built one 26" wheel and am waiting on the spokes for the next one. after this wheelset i plan on building a fat front. then possibly alfine rear to match? I dunno time will tell but I have plans for this thing
What's the bar setup? That's the tallest configuration I've seen other than my Ogre, and I've been fighting to get the bars down!
It's a On-One Midge bar with only 1 1/2" of steer tube cut. I have developed a shoulder issue in my advanced years and need my bars set up above the seat height. It also doesn't help that I have a short torso and long legs which makes fitting a bike difficult. This is my 3rd attempt at a touring bike build I can get comfortable on. My last two frames were too big (58cm) so I went with a 56cm Trucker. After 600 miles, three bars, and two stems I think I'm almost there. One more stem sized in between the last two will be in this week and I'm hoping that the fit will be spot on.....or I'll swap in MTB bars.
