Schwarz, Weiss, und Heiss!

Here is my new race bike.   As with all my bikes, color coordination is key and getting the parts took more time than I anticipated.  Not to mention some component setbacks.  Originally, I was going to use my Avid Juicy Brakes but it turns out the front brake caliper didn’t fit with my front wheel.  That same day as I was contemplating shifting brakes around, like putting the Juicy’s on the Qball and using the BB5s (because they were black) I got a little gift certificate for Amazon that would just about cover the cost of the 2011 BB7s and levers!

  1. That looks like a fun bike Mark! Probably needs a rack so you can bring the PBR with you. Maybe they make a titanium one.
