My first ever go at wrapping drops, thought I did pretty well.

Feel free to post your current projects.

Nice job. Hope the tape is re-usable.

Since my accident I have decided to do a roadie project. Something with the cheap carbon frames from China posted on ebay. Everyones talking about it but no one want's to try it so here I go.

The first image is of parts I have ordered off ebay.
I'm going to stick with the Ultegra 6600 SL series as I really like that gunmetal finish plus it's much much cheaper.

The second image is of what I already have.

I still have to source a cable kit and some new bartape. Did I miss anything?

^Is that a road frame? Looks chunky and small.

You're just missing tires and pedals but that's easy. I look forward to seeing it all built up!

It is a road frame. I ordered the 58cm size so hopefully it ain't lookin that chunky lol. The chunky parts are supposed to be aero (Chinese aero).

Hey have you guys ever heard the term if you put fast looking stickers on your ride it actually makes it run faster?

The tires are Michelin Lithion 2's and the pedals I haven't decided yet as I am using my Shimano SPD compatible pedals with my MTB shoes haha.

My next is a cargo bike, but it has some mechanical issues; mainly the front wheel hops when you load the rack and turn at speed. Anyone play around with one of these? So far messing with the fork rake hasn't done much :s

Its a bilenky style one, very hip.

your front wheel hops??

Try less psi or a bigger tire maybe?

Yeah I was wondering if a big fat DH tire would stick or just get lugs ripped out..

I think its a 20" front so I'm fairly limited, idk what the clearance is though..

Too much weight in the front not enough in the rear? Try leaving the bags on without anything in them or very little or balance the weight between the front and rear bags. I'm assuming you do have rear bags.

Negative, its main cargo platform is between rider and front wheel, not even sure there's a spot to mount rear panniers.
