An early Orbea




you got to start early ;)
This is Kirsten, 3,5 years old now.
With every bike a bought she told me it was her's, especially the PINK Klein Rascal
Because i sold that one, it didn't fit in the collection i had to make it up to her and bought this Orbea in >PINK<..she loves it!
I need to clean it up, put some lighter parts on,..clean it, replace the rear derrialleur by a PAUL, Ti Bar, USE Seatpost,..

Paul Thumbies



The first parts for the Fat Ti arrived today.
These came around and i just had to have them; Paul Thumbies
I know they are not that special but these shifters are different and look pretty because these are partial Grey, which will look good icw the Titanium frame.

sunday update



had so many things to do, boxed 2 bikes for shipment to their new owners and made some other packages

i didn't like the amber Tioga Psycho's on the Ibis, made it too plain.
It needed some more colour so replaced them by other psycho's,..with a bit mores edge

and i fixed the NOS Control Tech canti levers
When i put these on i had no clue how these worked because there is no spring but i works great actually, well atleast the fixing, i did not use them yet offcourse

Exciting times, Titanium times

It has been 2 weeks since the last update but that doesn't mean nothing happened.
Lets put it this way, a lot happened, more then in a normal 2 weeks ;)
I will update later this week with some nice new projects and i hope to receive the first one tomorrow.

If all goes well the orange project arrives tomorrow.
and in 1 week a gorgeous rare bike from Germany, a Serotta Ti-Max and the week after a Fat Ti from Santa Barbara USA.
I will show some pictures and my idea about the possible builds per project but for now i will show some pictures taken by the kind sellers.

I always had a soft spot for Serotta, they probably build some of the best bikes in the world, and the one i got is a rather special one.
It is a TiMax, and not a TMax as most people think, this one is made from titanium instead of steel


The next one is a Fat Chance Ti.
Also this one is very special, it is production number 006!, size medium
It comes with a Marzzochi fork, CH headset and ringle seatclamp.

Ritchey P(roject)20 TEAM WCS





I do not have much time to post right now but a small update; i received the Ritchey yesterday.
I had to clean it, was pretty dirty.
To be honest, i am not in love, it is a nice looking bike but there are so many ugly parts on the bike that it will take some replacing before i will start to like it, and if not, i am sure someone else will be.

I am really amazed that some people just put some parts on without looking at the composition
I started to take the barends off, replaced the cranks, changed the Stem, put another seatpost and seat on and locked the fork in the rigid position so it looks faster and the angle is better.
Today i will receive the rigid fork and that would make a big difference i think.
Updates will follow soon.

It now looks like this:
