Echo Lite (Update)

10 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

So I thought it was time for a new frame as I've recently got the bug to ride again.

First ride was great, felt nice and flicky, got a few issues to sort like the rear hose length and the tape holding it to the frame.

will post updated photos with a tidier setup, I plan to use a hose splitter to get rid of the crossover, and some stick on hose clips to clean the routing up and get rid of the tape!

Spec is as follows.

'09 Echo Lite Frame

Echo Urban forks

Trialtech hi-rise bars on a Trialtech forged stem

Echo SL headset

Front wheel: Echo Urban rim on a Hope Pro 2 hub

Echo CNC Cranks and specialised platform pedals

VP Bottom Bracket

Rear wheel: Echo SL rim on a Chris King hub

Kenda front tyre

Maxxis rear tyre

Front brake is a shimano deore 

Rear is a hs33 with CNC backed Rockman Blues

I think that's everything.

Thanks for looking!

Given the mad amount of interest I'm getting I thought I'd give you all a quick update :P

Fitted the hose splitter and cable guides to tidy it up, ground the rim again and replaced the rock blues with some TNN ADM's.

The feel of the brake is incredible with the splitter fitted, it feels much more responsive, and the new pads with the fresh grind are working perfectly.

I love how simple and clean it looks at the back now without the crossover, I'm finally satisfied with how it looks and rides.

Any comments are welcome if any! I know it's probably not what's appealing by today's standards, but it's bang on for me and what I'm used to, and I've always wanted to be able to spend out on a bike to get it looking exactly how I want it to.

Thanks for looking!

Usually I just ride local spots to me in Medway, but with the weather getting better me and a few others will be looking to sort something out further afield, Herne Bay etc.

Very tidy looking bike!

How does that bar and stem set up feel with it? I have the same frame with the 150x35 Trialtech stem and sport riser bars but was planning the 165x35 Trialtech stem with the high rise bars, take it yours is the 165 stem?

Thanks dude! Yeah it's nice, a lot higher up than my old setup, I used to run a 150x35 with trialtech low risers, it's now a 180x35 stem with highrise bars.

Its gives me a nice amount of leverage when going for gaps etc. Although I might try a lower stem as it's a little bit too far out for me. I'd recommend the bars either way, they've transformed how the bike feels!
