Current Stage Info:

The "FakeShiki" is an homage to my first real road-worthy roadbike, a salmon pearl fade 87 nishiki sport that I rode in college. The original met its fate by front end collision with an accord turning left in front of me. This will grace marymoor and my slow legs.

You sold it!?! Somebody bought it with the nishiki paint!?! Did you just sell the frame or the whole bike and what did you get for it?

i sold it to a friend who i've ridden with for years. she's racing track and i let it go for the cost of the frame, fork, and powdercoat. forget the wheels, i'm just glad it will see the track again.

These paint jobs that you get done are absolutely gorgeous. Even the pearl pink to white is astonishingly beautiful, and also unique. This thing is beautiful, and that's coming from someone who hates FTPs. lol

awesome FTP, nice build!
but gotta ask you, why i05TR?! IMO it makes the whole bikes looks "thin" :'-(

i really really want an alpina fork but i can't source one, and i didn't know any comparable 30 rake forks that were available at the time. in terms of satisfaction vs cost it's the worst. it's the same as the raleigh rush hour pro fork since 2007, just drilled, and the atc is crazy high.

you can buy an alpina fork from low bicycles. its how i got mine, i just emailed him and he gave me the price

_nico says:

you can buy them direcly from dolan bikes... thats where many framemakers get them from i think. but low could be cheaper as he will order many forks and can sell them cheaper than someone ordering just one and paying for shipping + tax!

charlie says:

I have a rush hour pro fork on there now. Richie, you're right. the rush hour pro fork is not drilled. otherwise tho, same frok.

This bike is so sick! Do you race on the velodrome in Redmond much? I've thought about driving down from Bellingham to try riding on the track.

charlie says:

I have ridden it on the track once but race season ended before I had it dialed. Which is too bad because it's really only made for a track... Thanks! If you ever make it over, let me know!

looks so much better all black, im considering building one and blacking it out like you haha, how hard was it to cut out the vinyl like that?

charlie says:

cutting is easy, warping and applying is hard.

What is the weight on this bad boy?

Posted almost 13 years ago

charlie

charlie says:

under 18 i think but I haven't checked it yet with the new wheels. it's primarily stiff, I'd assume it's heavier than previous year designs and am pretty sure it's stiffer (judging from the motobecane team).

Posted almost 13 years ago

essellsee

essellsee says:

I feel like it would be significantly lighter after dropping those B43's

Posted almost 13 years ago

charlie

charlie says:

it's likely a half pound lighter or so. open pros are feathery. it feels just as stiff though, and i geared up 17 to 15.
