Awesome bike!

Question: I just bought the same levers, and was wondering if you're doing anything to prevent the right brake lever from rattling/being annoying? I've read on some other forums that you'll need to wedge something to prevent the rattle, but is this the case specifically with these levers?

Thanks in advance - your bike is sick!

Electrical Tape!

Thank you very much! I actually just wrapped the right lever slightly in electrical tape and secured the tape my putting it underneath the hoods. It works out, just let people know before you let them try it out or else they might squeeze it! haha

One solution

One solution is get a rear brake, it works pretty well ;) or you can put a cable in, pull it tight and then tape it to the bars and then remember not to pull it.

Thanks

I would 100% put a rear brake on but the Bareknuckle unfortunately doesn't have cable stops. Maybe I'll try the other cable-thingy you mentioned - thanks Haeg!

check out

check out my PAKE its similar to what you're going for i bet
haegan

Yes!

That would be ideal - what did you use to route the rear brake? That looks perfect

Jag wire

They are stick on cable guides made by jag wire. Any shop can get them through QBP. they work pretty well

Very nice!

thank you

Thank you

good job

nice build! my only complaint is the half link chain
haegan

thank you

What chain would you recommend? Thanks

chain

any normal 1/8th chain will do it. i like sram because the masterlinks are great. halflinks just look a bit off and they stretch like crazy
