Was all the fun on Sunday afternoon, felt like being in a paint shaker coming off a 160mm fully but no less confidence inspiring :D

Nearly finished my touring bike! The most obvious thing to note is the Deore crank - I thought it would be the easiest way to get a low gear ratio without using a massive cassette!

So to continue from here:

Found a next gen in the size up, locally to boot.
Instantly felt better in the driveway test being the same reach as my Spitfire.
Have borrowed its stem, brakes, fork and wheels while it gets its annual teardown.

Should be a fun wild ride :thumbsup:

Privee 26.jpg


Now I have the other frame back with fresh bearings, the Privee gets its smaller wheels and fork.
Also have a 150mm dropper on it.
It's been a blast riding it though hitting my usual lines has been hilarious and scary at the same time with the back wheel getting bucked into the air or bogged down into the holes.
Have ridden it further in 2 rides than I ever rode the silver one in the year I owned it hehe.
I'll have to see if the wrong dropouts don't make it far too low.
