STEVIL, and, BRAKES JUST SLOW YOU DOWN

April 26th, 2008

So I finished painting Steve’s single speed cross bike. Here are some pix. Also here’s a link to his blog which is quite excellent and hopefully will soon have tall tales about his hot new bike. Which looks like this:

Note the custom stop for the rear canti that lets you adjust the brake, & is slotted so you can pop the cables out for cleaning.

I also put a disc brake tab on an old Bridgestone MB-4. We made a brace to transfer the braking forces down into the chainstay; without that, I’ve seen many seat stays buckle:

And here it is primed and ready to rock:
