- Gratuitous Ti 456 Build Photos
Well still a bit to do but its almost there, On-One 456 Ti, just need some full length gear cables as it is not split routing (any suggestions on a cable set for front & rear?) Feels pretty light considering it has some relatively tough kit on, very strange sitting on it after full sussers and having no bounce. Just need to sort my spine out and get out on the thing (seeing my surgeon today for the big decision) roll on a healthy summer
Excuse the bad pics, my camera hates low light!

ah, now the saddle I have and have had before does not go dirty looking, it cleans up very well each time, I admit its a lot of white, it looks better in the flesh but I may replace the bars with some carbon ones… perhaps! and the fireplace was a one off from Van Nicholas… honest 😉Posted 8 years ago
to be honest I never sit in the saddle unless im going up hill or on the flat, going down im always out the saddle … or on the floor
TBH I dont get on with level saddles, always need to tilt them back for some reason.. that said its obv not had a test ride so things will get a tweak!Posted 8 years ago
there's a rug in the middle of the room 🙂 and a half eaten Biscuit, and a damn washer I lost under the sofa…..
I must admit I do like to build something a tad different, and for some reason I like white, same scheme on all my builds, however I just hope it rides well, and fingers crossed my surgeon will bet my spine sorted out for the summer so I can enjoy it!Posted 8 years agotinsyMember
Thats a really nice looking bike… nice one, Fibrax do white braided gear cables and it comes in the exact right length for an 18" inbred with a shaddow type mech on it, or add a cable oiler and an extra bit for a conventional mech, would look quite nice on that. Best bit is they are only £5 a pop from CRC, bling without th sting.Posted 8 years ago
tinsy.. thanks for the advice on the gear cables, crc are out of stock 🙁 basically after full length inner and outer for front and rear, either white or braided hoses, most kits seem to be split hoses for conventional cable routing, I may just buy some goodridge cable outers but a tad expensive!Posted 8 years agotakisawa2Subscriber
Nice bike, really like that. Be interested to how it rides.
Wonder how much it will soak up bumps compared to a std 456 or Inbred.
Wouldn't go for white gear cables though, it would look like its wearing an ipod.
I've always wondered how popular a "Show us your lounges" thread would be, & I feel it would be very popular.
That TV cabinet looks like a Leksvik IIRC. We've the book case. Good value kit, & the antique hue goes with a lot of decor schemes. They used to sell them doors separately but apparently have stopped now.Posted 8 years ago
If you sell the doors let me know.
plumped for some silver braided gear cables and matching brake hoses and some Ti headset spacers. That said had my meeting with the surgeon yesterday, I will be operated on soon, so a week in hospital and 3-4 months recovery, so for a while it will be stared at… and polished a lotPosted 8 years ago
I was going to get a silver thomson stem but not sure it would look right, its still a build in progress so may change it a bit, just went for a silver thomson post in the end! the wheels are not changing ever, they are worth as much as the frame! all in all im not sure, I may change the stem! then againPosted 8 years ago
