Bodged Pipedream Sirius build (pics)
Pics from building up my new frame yesterday…
Enough parts for a bike plus a small boy. We begin.
The correct tools for fitting a headset (boy optional)
Temporary shim (think I will get a new uppy-downy post soon)
I've only popped out round the woods for 10 minutes so far – initial impressions are very good (though I am already missing the gravity dropper seatpost on my full suss). Looking forward to using it in anger this week 🙂

Nice looking frame there. I'd really like one at the moment.
'm confused, just checked the website and the black or bling ti come in at £346, but the page says £295.
Do they seriously charge £50 delivery?
Thats the VAT innit
I wanted to buy the Ti version as they are advertised at £699 but £821 when you go to pay
I don't get those prices at checkout- just £10 upcharge on the Sirius for postage, a bit more on the Ti?Posted 7 years ago
No idea on weight but it feels 'quite light'. I'll get round to measuring it at some point.
The hub does have a bit of resistance when freewheeling, but in use it is fine. I fitted a different sprocket and overtightened the lockring, which made it much worse – so may be worth backing the lockring off a bit if it is an issue?
Ooooo ooo his seatpost is too long!Posted 7 years ago
Yeah I like it too. Best looking bike I own. I will ruin that soon enough by adding a gravity dropper and getting it filthy / scratching it up.
You know when you get a new toy and like going for a little peek at it? Well that was me yesterday – kept just popping out to the garage for a little look and rubbing my hands up and down my trousers.
Might be just me!Posted 7 years agoIamSamSubscriber
oh thats sweet.
Know exactly what you mean though when I got the Zesty it lived in the dining room for ages just so I could have a look at it all the time plus it was cleaned after every ride, I even polished it once or twice.
It'll look better once its had a bit of off road love any how.Posted 7 years ago
