Beautiful Picture

Definitely my favorite shot of a bike on Velospace. Full color, and the sign is funny too. Looks like a great day for a ride.

Tektro brakes

Can you tell me how you attached the Tektro brakes? I have one of
these frames and it accepts hex-nut bolted brakes. The Tektro's
look like recess-mounted brakes. Replacing the standard 27" wheels
with 700's requires the long-reach brakes like the Tektros. Thanks.



The front is fairly simple. Just drill the back side of the fork to the O.D. of the smaller part of the set in nut. But the rear is a compomise. The easy way is to drill from the brake side all the way through unless you can get a small enough tool in from the back between the seat tube.

Good Luck!


I almost forgot. You can avoid drilling the back all together by using a front caliper on the rear. The longer stud will stick out enough for you to get a normal nut treaded onto it.

i love your build. I'm
