Bike build - Part 9

This is it. The final bits of the bike build.

Index the Gears


Before the bike gets dirty :-)



I decided the steerer tube looked too long, so I cut it down.


I got Shelley out so I could setup the suspension and other parts to suit her. It was supposed to be a spare bike but she's claimed it :-)

Pump up the suspension.

Angle the saddle.


Before I'd finished checking it over, Shelley decided to take it for a shakedown ride.

When she got back, I adjusted the brake levers and reduced the tyre pressures to her normal preference.

I also took it for a short ride.

I am pleased with it and so is Shelley.
