playing with parts

Frame: 1995 Fat Chance Titanium (TFM 006)
Fork: Pace RC35 for now but will be replaced with a rigid black Tange fork
I took the Marzzochi Bomber out which looked to massive and the time beeing the Pace looks better.

Headset: Chris King no name
Stem: Control Tech for now but will be replaced by a custom Moots (customized by Kish)
Handlebar: Fybrelyte for now but will be replaced by a Titanium Kolo flat bar
Grips: not available yet but i would like to use some OURY grips

Brakes: Shimano XTR M900
Brake Pads: Shimano XTR M900
Brake Levers/Shifters: Shimano XTR STI M900

Front Derailleur: Shimano XTR M900
Rear Derailleur: Shimano XTR M900
Cassette: Shimano XTR M900 Titanium (very light!)
Chain: not available yet
Cranks: Cook Bros RSR
Chainrings: not available yet
Bottom Bracket: Syncros Titanium
Pedals: Onza HO Titanium

Hub Skewers: Cook Bros
Rims: Mavic 517 Ceramic
Hubs: Chris Kind classic hubs in pewter (RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR) but not in yet, will take a couple of weeks
Spokes: DT revolution
Tyres: Tioga Spycho II in amber

Saddle: Flight titanium
Seatpost: Syncros Titanium
Seatpost Binder: Ringle but i also have a NOS Cook Bros which would look nice icw the Skewers but i have to look it up.

Weight: no clue what so ever but it feels light right now

Some of these parts were intended for the Serotta TiMax but i want to move some parts over
Today i have bought a silver Paul front derrailleur and i still have a silver rear Paul so i will use these for the Serotta build.
I do not want to use them on the Fat because the fat will be the rider of the 2 and i just trust the M900 gear more in action.
And because i like the look of complete groups i will be using the STI's on the Fat and move the Paul Thumbies to the Serotta.
Now i have to find some Paul levers to complete that.
With regards to the brakes on the Serotta i want to use the NOS Control Tech cantis i have available.
I have been thinking about Onza Hola's or Onza Ho's bt these CT's are just more special and will look good on the Black and White build, completed with the Syncros Revolution cranks.

Hi C

I hope they will look nice in the end

first i need to find someone who is good enough to paint titanium


Casper said...

Is painting Ti more difficult then normal steel or aluminium?

Didn't knew that.

OLD-METAL said...

yes, that's what i have been told.
The paint does not stick that good to the Ti as on steel, atleast that what they told me, and looking at the chips on the TiMax that sound logical to me.

Next month I'm going to someone who painted some Trek frames here in NL. I'm going to ask him if he's willing and able to paint my DK. If you like, i can ask him if he can paint Ti as well.

OLD-METAL said...

Yes I'd like that!
