Here is my new everyday bike. I use it for everything except brushing
is a Cervelo P2 SL TT frameset. Thiefs like flashy things so I painted
like dynohubs, because I ride a lot at night. A SON20R gives me
a low weight and low drag, no problems with LED lights, I build
the wheel myself. Rims are the cheaper Mavic CXP28, 105 rear hub.
Frontlight is a B&M Fly senso IQ 80 Lux version, which is really
phenomenal in my humble opinion. Backlight is a dyno-powered B&M,
I routed the cable throught the frame, using the unused frontshiftercable-hole
in the downtube, the downtube is open around the bracket, from there
I drilled a little hole in the seat tube, and also a hole in the
seatpost (which can carry an elephant anyway).
is Brooks swallow classic with cromoly rails, it gives me a feeling
of safety. Tires are Conti Grand Prix's, which are cheap, wear slowly
and puncture resistance is very good, except maybe on the sides.
Brakes are cheap Tiagra's, I don't really see te functional difference
with more expensive ones...they work great to me. Front ring is
53, 18 in the back. works nice at my cruising speeds, between 28
and 34 km/h.
used a half link to deal with the short horizontal dropouts, I have
enough room for some chain stretch, which I won't let get too much
anyway too get linger toothring-cog-life. Oh yeah, bracket is the
older octalink type, 105 cranks, and pedals are cheap spd's, they
work great of you buy the 1euro-adjustingment tool.
for your time!
