Tech and Restoration / Re: Fit Mixtape V3 build and etc.

Brake has arriveth.



And I already don't like the hanger. It's similar to the one on the Kink desist brake, and I HATE that. So I am going to use a Demolition one I found. Talking of brakes.



They won't work without that shit. Nor will the cranks  :LolLolLolLol:

Tyres just shipped out with Fedex, so I should get those tomorrow.

Forgot to say. The reason I cleaned the left pedal is because I was trying to remove the logo so I could make my own. Unfortunately it is on there, and I didn't want to get rough and chance effing them up beyond repair. So I left that alone.

The brake came today (gorgeous) and so did the annoying parts I needed (brake post mounts, cable stop kit and sprocket top hat) so I will get some pics of that shortly.

I made the final order about 5 mins back. This.



I want something to tie the BB into the build. I didn't want to spend loads of cash on a new headset so I grabbed that for 9.99 delivered. The Sunday I have is not conical and has hardly any spacers and I AM NOT cutting that fork. Sod that.

Decided to buy different tyres. The Fit are great, but totally dangerous in the wet. I don't want the bike swapping ends on me. And yeah, I think this one will become the one I ride. The S&M turned out too nice, and besides one ride and it will look shit. So I am going to clean up the Metal and turn it back into the collector's item it always was. I wanted higher bars on that, but nothing suit it better than the ones on there (they are only 8.5, though). Besides all of that the T/A are only 2.2s. And if I am going to ride a modern bike I want big F off tyres. I mean why not?

So I got a pair of these on sale. Worked out at 17 quid each, 2.45.



Wanted something else to tie into the seat. What I wanted was brown, but I don't like Ruben tyres (and I hate BSD Donnasqueak). Ruben tyres are rough and extremely noisy. So these should fit the bill perfectly.

OK so this was done yesterday.



As was this.





Pedals came earlier. They are absolutely gorgeous.



Have cleaned the left one already, will do the right when I come to fitting.

I just paid for these quite simple but very cool O.G.K. MR-3 grips for the Hirame build. I now have a long wait because they are coming from Canada. I don't mind because they are exactly what I wanted to use on this build.

Sweet  :daumenhoch:

I had a set of these OGK grips for years I couldnt give them away? I put foam on them and used them in the end and like them  :daumenhoch:

Yeah, they are pretty cool. I think they crossed over with mountain bike specs, I guess some folk prefer bmx specific kit on their bikes.

Blimey. It was only after looking back at the Hope pedals that I clocked just how these are a total rip off  :LolLolLolLol:

I'm going to call them no hope pedals. Far more BMX  :LolLolLolLol: Might have to get some decals made hahahaha. I do like me a good piss take  :LolLolLolLol:

OK, finally the postal service stopped lying and actually showed up.



And I bought some pedals... Basically I wanted Hope pedals in blue, but very spendy. Like, 140 smackers spendy. I then eyed up some Animal ones (metal) for 50, and some Demolition for 80 or so.

I then ordered none of those  :LolLolLolLol:

Went on Amazon and searched and these showed up. Hope clones, but the look I wanted, discount code 32 quid. Sealed too.
