The new cross bike is slowing becoming a reality. Parts have arrived and more are on the way. Unfortunately, the crankset is on back order, but I managed to get the bottom bracket. Ruka made herself at home amongst the bits and pieces.
Trying out a set of the Tektro canti brakes. Yeah, they're cheap, but check out the vitals in QBP. They're light weight and I've heard nothing but good reviews from Bonsall as far as the ease of use and stopping power. Plus they're about a fourth the cost of a set of Paul's and almost half the Cane Creek jobbers.
Next step is getting the wheelset built. Wills, when are you available?
