Cheers 1988 I really appreciate that. I like the Frog Knog's I just got a pair on my Langster and they're surprisingly bright. Although I bought a pair of Ikea copycat Knogs for

Noice djb

Tought about making a glittery kalavinka but the time id had to wait was
way too long, money was burning in my pocket so i bought a true dutch RIH.

What are these grips, man? I dig.

And are those MASH bar ends?
Sep 16, 2008 @ 16:00
^ yeah, those are Mash bar ends. i think you can get them on their site.

I use horns, and I love them. They offer multiple hand positions which I find to be incredibly beneficial


i know right.

So i'd like to purchase one of them drop stems but i'm not sure what size I should get...it's for my 2007 regular Pista, not my Concept. Anyone know? I'd like to use it in conjunction with the Nashbar carbon fork, too:

fitting is individual, we can't tell you what size stem to get.

unless you're asking clamp size. which depends on which fork you get, which depends on the diameter of your headset.

Work in progress. Aerospoke is in the paintshop doing a MJ. I got a Campagnolo Record headset, Cinelli Nitto quill stem and riser bars to go on but having seen Booduh's pic I might have to send it all off to the chromers, who did my front forks, to make it all shiny. Still undecided on the drive side of things but that is one of the new H Plus Son Formation Face rims on the rear. Should be a dog to ride in the wind but it'll look good. ;)

OMG its still the whizz(great frame, not a fan of the plastic wheel tho),
Ive ordered a pair of H+sons aswell (and some suntor superbes to fit).



Right now its all nuovo record, but im afraid they ill break (hubs).
Still a lot has to be changed, but im super pleased with my vintage RIH frame.
Will post when im finised!

Alright Frank. Nice looking frame you got there. The H Plus Son is really nice, so nice that I have been contemplating selling the Aerospoke and getting a full H Plus Son wheelset, but i'll see how it looks built and in white first. Oh and it's carbon composite, not plastic. ;)

I'm considering buying a Leader frame, but I'm a little worried about the droupout spacing. Anyone?

Why? Anything above 120mm and you get the hub spaced and if it's less than 120mm you can buy smaller hubs.
Sep 28, 2008 @ 16:05
Naw I'm talking about clearance between the tire and seat tube...the droupouts aren't long enough

I can't tell you how they ride yet because I'm waiting on the painwork on the new build before I try them out. But they're lighter than Velocity Deep-V's. And they do make 36h, mine are 36h.
Oct 05, 2008 @ 16:03
serious? Ive been searching and i havent found 36. Guess i gotta keep asking around.

The guy from H + Son came on London Fixed Single Speed Forums and said this.

And the early birds prob don't want to hear this but... the rims will get better as production goes on. Just like anything that isn't perfected yea there is always an updated version.
I am not using eyelets(or providing washers) for this rim because of the movement needed by the nipple when laced to a high flange hub. Which is also why i'm using alternating holes on the new production run. (the up down up down drilling pattern)
I tested the rim with the new alternating hole drilling and found that the spoke bed passed the spoke pull through test.

I realize the drilling on the rim has room for improvements and made a note of that with the factory. The fact that there is no parallel surface on the formation face rim makes it a lot harder to drill than a regular rim... so please please understand that this is a key point we are working on to improve.

Yo buddah I've been messing around on my track trying to get it to pop up like that, I'm able to to a no-handed track stand and I've been told to simply lean back a little and pedal forward and it should pop right up... I tried and I don't know what I'm doing wrong, can you explain in your words? P.S. Lovin' that concept.

Some updated pictures of my ride...
Got some double-izers but they're not pictured. Skinned my knee today skipping/cornering too hard.


Sorry that picture is so dark...
