- On One Bootzipper
All seems to be quiet around here RE the new on-one bootzipper, currently missing axels of an appropriate length.
ive preordered one of these bargains, with the idea of building it up from my extensive bin of spares.
Although, ive succombed to the boost, so instead of being able to use the wheels i have (rebuild 26″ wheels onto spare 29er rims i have lying around, which i estimate woudl cost £100 in parts resulting in a bodged/adapted wheelset) ive bought a new pair of wheels for it for £100
Now i’m wondering, am i going to need to buy boost cranks too?
For a bike that looks like it should be “old school”, it uses a lot of new standards?
especially as there are two Genesis Longitudes on the classifieds this week (basically the same geometry, but with old standards). Doh.
Anyone else got a Bootzipper on order?Posted 1 month agoOllyMember
After a fashion,it’s built.
NOS superstar wheels, hayes9s that have spent the last 10yrs in a box, and a blend of 9speed Xt and Xtr with stainless cogs front and rear.
Oh,and a free reverb!
Only ridden across town so far, but it’s really very nice to ride, and I didn’t die riding by down a short stair step.
Wondering if I’ll get an opportunity to ride it properly before back to work on the 2nd. How do I post photos here these days?Posted 3 weeks ago
