    fetish SS progress...

    A couple hours and a couple beers later, i've built the front end and brakes on my new bike. This is my first time building a bike myself... Fetish cycles Fixation frame, manitou black fork, azonic wf handlebars, easton stem and FSA pig headset. It came out right the first time, spins perfectly. Just finishing setting up the hayes hmx-1 mech's. Next step is putting together the crank. I just got the arms in today, so i'll start that in about an hour. Here's some pics

    I'm building up a fetish myself, I know it takes a 27.2 seatpost, but what about the clamp? And what size BB spindle are you running?

    30mm clamp will work & a 73 x 113 bb (least that's what I ran on mine)

    the seat tube is slightly oversized. 31.8*1.6*2.2
    i use a 31.8 clamp...like this Seat Clamp
    the bb shell was 68, so a 73 will require a space (this is common) and the 113mm is fine.

    Looks good!

    I'm in the same boat as you...well...not quite. Got all the parts together but just don't have the dang time to put it together. ABSOLUTELY hate 4th quarter work!!!

    But there is something to look forward to:

    Frame: Fixation 17"
    Fork: 03 Marz MX Pro (105mm)
    Wheels: Cheapy Deore hubs w/Rhyno Lite Rims...spare set but hey, it works
    Brake Levers: Avid FR1 (OE stuff from Jenson)
    Front Brake: Avid BB7
    Front Tire: WTB Mutano's 2.4"
    Rear Brake: Avid Single Digit SL (did not want to hassle with taking off/loosening the disc caliper JUST to change a tube..f that...plus SL's got that bling factor )
    Rear Tire: WTB Weirwolf 2.35"
    Headset: Cane Creek S3
    Stem: old RaceFace (100mm x 10 deg)
    Handle bar: Easton EA50 26"
    Seatpost: Thomson (27.2 x 367mm)...will be sharing this with the NRS
    Seat: good 'ol Performance Team Forte (Ti rails, light and comfy too...will be sharing this with the NRS too)
    Seat post clamp: generic QR 31.8
    Cranks: old set of Shimano's...was a triple but stripped it and slapped a 32T x 104 ring on it (no ramps and no pins)
    BB: Shimano square tapered
    Pedal: don't know yet...flats or SPDs
    Rear cog: Gusset SS conversion kit...and since my fat a*s being doing nothing but pull 10+ hrs workdays for the last couple of months, I'm gonna put that 18T puppy on...hell, i might just have to put a 20T on that mofo!

    Like I said, the goods are in but just don't have the time. Pix to follow when the build begins...whenever that may be.
