photos on the first page were getting reasonably out of date - there've
been a couple different sets of cranks, brakes, tires and such.
After installing Rivendell/Nitto lugged ahead stem and noodle bars,
I realized it probably wouldn't be this clean for a while, so...
photo time. The sharp-eyed among you will notice that I had to pull
a 9spd Ultegra front brake/shifter out of the parts pile, as the
old 600 8 spd shifter had finally gotten too senile. Also, I'm running
"traditional" (though less commonly found these days)
cable hangers on the Avid 6's.
to the first version of this bicycle
detailed in the blog back at the end of October, some
cracks revealed themselves the day before the White's
Hill CX race. Further
inspection showed that they began from inside the headtube,
and thus, the Poprad honored to the skies and sent back under warranty.
Lots of good miles, great rides and nice memories in that frame.
