This is my regular commuting bike. It's a Fort 531 touring/audax frame with whatever bits I had, found or could procure cheaply. It's just had a stripdown/rebuild.

Gearing: Shimano Exage/Deore with SR Custom 50/32 chainset, 13-28 7 sp freewheel.
Braking: Weinmann centrepulls with build in straddle, Tektro levers.
Wheels: Fr, MA40 on Schmidt dyno hub, Rr, Rigida Sputnick on Exage, Conti Gatorskinz 28mm.
Brooks B17, AirZound horn, Charge faux leather bar tape.

It doesn't look much, but it's a good ride. Last year it took me from one end of Britain to the other. Sadly, it's a bit small, so will probably be replaced next year.


London, UK.
