My bike.

I realised today that my website is about three weeks old and I still haven’t shown anyone my ride.

Currently the frame is an old Giant Farrago, I don’t know the year I bought it from the Tiny’s Shed to replace my old Shogun Selectra which got bent in a crash. I did send an email to Giant Aust but as usual I heard nothing back but silence.

The current wheels are Velocity deep V, which seem to be cracking near the rim plus the area where the pads interface with the rim is becoming concave.

It’s now a 24 speed, since I went from a double to triple chainring.







SKS mudguards (35mm IIRC),

Schwalbe Marathon plus 700c x 25 (lasted over 6,000km so far),

Shimano SPD M520 pedals,

Satori suspension seat post 27.2mm, doesn’t really make up for the fact I have no suspension.

Selle SMP Extra saddle.

I used to have cantilever brakes on it but have since swapped them out for V Brakes and will probably move up to Shimano Deore V Brakes within 12 months.
