The Tricross is now fully built up, although a few things need changing. I’ve taken the silly bar top levers off, however this means that the cable outers aren’t contiguous and don’t work too well, I’ll try and get a couple on in-line cable adjusters to go in there tomorrow.
I’m not a great fan of the brake levers either, they are a bit pointy and not overly comfortable. I’d swap them with the nice levers from the Langster except that means fitting cantis instead of the v-brakes.
I need to swap the bars for the Bell Laps from the Langster, but I’ll probably try and tie that in with a brake replacement.
I found a spare 18T fixed sprocket to sort the drivetrain out, however I’ve left the 18T freewheel in place for the moment.
There are a pair of cheap SPDs fitted at the moment which were meant to go on the Ribble, I’ll swap them for the nice ones off of the Langster when I get a chance.
I’ve taken it for a quick test ride up the road and back which is about all my ribs can cope with today, and it feels really nice.
Photos tomorrow (probably).
