Project 24" - Steel MK 2 Fourplay Geo

8 posts in this topic

Over the last year I have been acquiring parts to build a 24" street bike, been a while coming, been so broke I nearly caved and sold the parts.. but persevered.

The frame started life in black, badly painted Mark 1 WIP 24" with the same geo as a Fourplay Mk II, the forks a friend had made by JAF and were used for about 2 rides.. stripped, sanded and lacquered the frame finally last night and put in the forks, stem bars, cranks and a shoddy old pivotal that was knocking about to see what it was starting to look like... and the result is pretty good!

Should be finished in the coming weeks, provided I can get the hubs and bash sorted.. but for now here it is in it's current state:

I know, it's not mine.. every time I go over seems to be more and more parts in there and now his project VW Polo. It's such chaos it drives me nuts!

You could probably get some good money for that stem on eBay. Change it for a cheaper one freeing up some cash for other bits?

It's not mine.. I can purchase it but just using it at the moment to get it set up. Same with the bars as they are the white Arcade bars (personally I want black)

I am nearly there, just a little bit of tinkering with the brakes, putting the Nukeproof pedals on and getting a bash ring (still) and she will be ready to go. Right in time for Winter!

Very nearly had to sell it due to a multitude of expenses coming out the woodwork, but thanks to Thames Water owing me nearly £300 I am happily able to keep her.

Spec is below, better pics once I am happy with it:

  • Frame - Original WIP S-24 Frame, Fourplay MK2 Geometry - 1020mm WB, 375mm CS, +25mm BB, 72 HA - 360 dropout - disc and 4 bolt mounts - Clearcoat lacquered
  • Forks - Custom JAF - 20mm bolt through axle - Clearcoat lacquered
  • Cranks - Shimano SLX
  • Stem - Thompson Elite 90 x 10 - Black
  • Bars - Inspired Arcade - White
  • Front Wheel - DMR D-vee 24" Rim - Draco 20mm DH hub in blue
  • Rear Wheel - Sun S-Type 24" Rim - Halo 135mm hub in black with allen key release - 24/7 single speed kit
  • Brakes - 1 week old Shimano M445's on 203 rotors front and rear, basically new pads
  • Other bits - Brave Machine sealed bearing headset - Vans waffle grips - Kenda tyres - Inspired Pivotal seatpost - Blue Eclat Pivotal saddle

Ive seen that shit first hand. Organised chaos at best. The upgrade does look a bit fresher/brighter.
