Oh man ! For sure my favorite Macho Man disc !!
That's funny because I found it while looking for good macho man builds. It's my new project and I was thinking about puting camo bar tape, black components and mavic aksium disc wheels (black circle with big white letters)
Your build has the same colors as mine (in my thoughs, haha) !

DId you have any clearance issues while running the BRUCE GORDON Rock'n'Road 700x43c?

Posted over 4 years ago

defnam

defnam says:

No clearance issues with RNR, the clearance is tight but perfectly safe with no rubbing... you might have some issues if you ride them in muddy conditions. Also while riding them on gravel you will get little stones stuck in the groves and potentially hit the frame, annoying but not really a problem

This build has been an inspiration to me. I picked up this frameset on clearance from QBP last year and have slowly been building it up. I am currently waiting on the UPS man to drop off the last batch of parts.... I will be building this weekend and im so excited. Beautiful build! Cheers!!

Thanks mate. Websites like Pedal Room and Radavist.com helped me a lot with inspiration for this build and I am so happy that I can give something back by giving other people inspiration for there projects. Enjoy building your Macho man!!! I still ride mine everyday and love it!

For your front rack, did you have to get custom extended rods to mount onto your fork brazons? Thanks

The Bruce Gordons look killer. What rims were you using and how was clearance?

Posted about 5 years ago

defnam

defnam says:

The rims are WTB i19 Frequency, which are tubeless ready. The clearance is tight but perfectly fine for dry riding, there might be some issues if you are using them in very muddy conditions.

This looks great! Any idea of the weight? Especially in its original spec. I'm building something extremely similar (including the camo bar tape), but with Rival 22.

Posted about 5 years ago

defnam

defnam says:

Weight very much depends on wheels and tyres I have on, the lightest setup is 10.5kg, bike with WTB wheels, Bruce Gordon tyres and front rack is almost 12kg. With Easton wheels and Clement LAS tyres (which are very light) bike is just over 10.5kg

I must ask though, how do you like the TRP Spyre brakes?

Posted almost 6 years ago

defnam

defnam says:

Thanks amigo... As for brakes I really like them, it's my first disk brake bike so I can't really compare but overall I am very happy with them. I ditched the stock pads and planing to upgrade from stock rotors to Shimano Ice-tech soon. They should be even better then<

Orange newbaums for a small touch :) i like

Posted almost 6 years ago

defnam says:

It's all about the detail ;) it's actually Velox Tressostar cloth tape which I find way superior

jakebueler says:

Oh really? what makes it better? i'm using black newbaums right now, and it's fading away, but i still love it. i'm always down for better parts :)

Posted almost 6 years ago

defnam says:

Newbaums is a great bar tape, but I just prefer the look and feel of Velox Tressostar, it feels more old school. It's easier to wrap, and have lasted longer then newbaums did... ATMO

I really considered the Macho Disc before building up my Traitor Ruben. Seeing this, and the Macho King specs, almost makes me wish I had gone in this direction. Very nice.

Very nice. How is the 50/34 for cross? I went with the 46/36 setup.

Posted almost 6 years ago

defnam

defnam says:

46/36 would be good if you wanna race your cross bike. 50/34 is great for commuting and gravel grinding, light touring... which is all want to do for now. If I want to race it, I would have to change my entire drive train

This is awesome! I'm about to build up something quite similar from a surly cross check tangerine frame. Now you made me want camo bartape on my build. Looks sweet against the orange. But most importantly - this looks like a bike prepared to take you out on some great adventures. Have fun!

defnam

defnam says:

Thanks mate!!! Adventure is exactly what I had in mind when I was planing this build, with wide gearing and room for big tyres this bike will truly take you anywhere. Cross bike is the most versatile bike you can own. Look forward seeing your build. Build one, ride it, enjoy it

Looks a bit too big - fantastic build though!! :)

It's a 58cm frame and I am a big guy :)

Karl

Karl says:

Yeah well the frame doesn't look big - it's just from the seat post height i figure a 56'd look even better - the top tube would make more sense in the context, but maybe you've got shorter legs and a long torso? Got the same problem w. my pinarello - should have been 56 :/ But it's no big deal really
