Nearly finished...
« on: April 02, 2018, 05:18 PM »
Hi guys, not too flash of a build but I hope you like it. I thought Iíd share some pics of my nearly finished first build with parts all sourced in sales. Money doesnít grow on trees after all. Started this build well over a year ago!

Frame, forks and bars-Total BMX Hangover 2 in sparkle orange.
Headset and bottom bracket-Eastern in black
Cranks 3 piece in gloss black-Firma
Pedals-DMR V8 in gloss black
Sprocket-Total BMX Rock n Roll Lite 25t
Stem-Total BMX cncíd in gloss black
Chain-KMC 710 in black and silver
U Brake (cncíd)and lever-Shadow Conspiracy Sano in gloss black
Seat post-Eclat Torch layback in gloss black
Seat-Mutiny pivotal Kevlar type in grey
Grips-Renthal single ply medium compound in grey
Wheels-Blank Compund with cassette 9t driver in rasta
Tyres-We the people Gripping all black
I think thatís it. Would like your feedback good or bad.  p.s I know the bars should be further back but I couldnít ride it in line with the forks, chicken wing style. I just need to hook the brake up and itís done!
Thanks for looking.

That's bang tidy mate. Loads of new school bikes look great these days and that is cool :coolsmiley:

Really try and get the bars back a bit, the bike will be far more stable in the air  :daumenhoch:

Thanks chez, the wheels were going to be oil slick but weíre delivered with damage. They was out of stock so went for the rasta.

Pickle, Iíll set the bars further back and after reading another thread might set the seat to run with the top tube. Could slap a sano detangler on in the future, letís see.

Thanks for your comments guys. Iím now planning my next build. 81 goose frame set bought and pondering 🤔 Watch out for my next thread on sorting iffy dropouts. Youíve all been there right ?

bars same angle as forks is a good rule these days ... we needed bars upright BITD due to the short frames and relaxed head tube angles  :daumenhoch:

seat same angle as top tube as well ... no one sits down no more  :4_17_5:

Really, really nice...the colour is perfect, bet it looks wild in the sun!!

Out of interest, what made you go with a Total Hangover?

They are a great tech frame, and a ton of riders use them, but couldn't be any further away from old school, ie steep headangle, low standover, short rear end.

Sorry for the late reply. The build started as a me time project and originally I went with the Blank Grizzly 21 inch tt just to start a cheap build ( it was about £60 ) Then the total frame went on sale so I went for that. I will not use the bike anywhere near itís full potential as Iím an old man now lol. I just loved the colour and the geometry of the frame looked cool. Plus the integrated chain tensioners and seat post pin were a bonus. I needed a project to keep me in garage tinkering. I wanted to do an old school build but doing the sums it stung too much, so I went new school. A little random but Internet shopping for the parts was a good way to while away the hours. The build was a slow one as all parts were bought in sales but the actual build was easy for someone like me who hadnít touched a bike in over a decade. Thanks for taking time to look at my pics and your comment.

No worries mate... hope the delay was due to you being out an enjoying the bike!

Totally get it (no pun intended), I love a bargain and spend many an hour shopping for parts (which I seem to find more time for than riding these days)...

And it is a great colour  fistblump
