I've missed 26" wheels and never quite got the geo right in my last few goes, after one full days riding I think I've done it.DSC04591.thumb.JPG.f3c72a3dd33293ffa4b9c3b8c9b7894e.JPGDSC04579.thumb.JPG.e2e0b3b26850c6b472985068dea60795.JPG

Looks tasty that, what's the magical geo you've settled on?

Cheers, I basically wanted a Pashley 26GHZ but without the weight and a slightly higher bb.

With the 410 x 30 fork it's 1015, +5, 385, 74. Don't be fooled by the short wb, it's got a huge reach, partly due to the long head tube and the relatively low bb, which fulfills my dream of not needing any spacers or a silly vertical stem.

Proper HT length, low BB, 74* HA should make things fairly comfortable yeah. Glad you've found something you're content with dude.

Cheers, yeah I never felt quite right on 24" wheels, plus it's nice to have a brake that locks no matter what, I'll have to live with the noise...

Every build you have has been spot on dude. This one is no exception. Well done mate

Thanks! I do try and have something a bit different, I wanted something that looked like a normal bike and let me use a normal stem, no disc mount, I would have liked horizontal dropouts but my gear ratio leaves me two chainstay lengths, one is too short to use a proper tyre and one is straight from 1998.

So change to an equivalent ratio on sprockets that allow a proper length :P

20:17, 18:16 and even 16:14 are all pretty close if you did want to switch down the line (Y)

These cranks are my favourites, but you can't go under 22t lol, trust me I did look at other options but decided to stay with 22-19 for the 20th consecutive year. Tensioners don't bother me too much anyway, this new single sided one is great.

Furthermore, these Clean bars are well nice.

Looks great!

Did you upgrade the jockey wheel? I think the older tensioner had a stronger spring?

Cheers, yeah I had it laying around, I'm sure it'll improve my riding greatly. The old version's spring reached a lot further so might have been stiffer yeah, I do like how you can just unhook the chain on this one though.

My video for this particular decade is due soon. I'm gonna do my best to actually film this year. I'm not really into small clips and raw footage so I'm gonna guess about September.

That's too bad. I guess I'll have to wait till September then. :)
