Adamant 24 aka Project Ugly

4 posts in this topic

It's 95% complete so here's a couple of pics of my Adamant 24.

Build is as budget as possible so big thanks to aener, Mikee and Dan Chandler for sorting me out a few bits and especially little yoshi for the wheels/tyres!

May be a few changes to be made yet but need to ride it first. 

Next job is chain + tensioner and possibly brakes but I'm not 100% sure yet :P

Ugly?
I actually rather like it!

Really looks like it needs some higher bars though. TT blacks would fit perfectly, visually.
And that's rather a long stem... Are you going on the old-side of mid-school, or just taking what you can get?

I did have a 90x35 stem to go on but it was 25.4mm clamp and the only bars I have to hand are some Truvativ Husselfelts from an old 4play I had. 

Plan is to source some TT high rise bars (I had some but gave them away) and another 90x35 stem. 

If I like how it rides eventually might go Pro 2 on the rear and some new rims but not desperate. 

And the ugly comment is off the welcome the frame got when it was first released, did not go down well :lol:
