while i enjoy your money pit idea, i think what makes the bike special right now is the lack of branding. it lets the chameleon paintjob speak for itself.

I love the choices you have made for the build. a minimalist money pit for sure!

very cool

That paint is rad! I used to live in NYC and as tired as I got of 9w, I do miss it now. The palisades were always great.

Why the RS-500 crankset?

Good question! That's one of the few models of Shimano cranks whose arms clear the chainstays. The RS-500 began life a few years ago as a cyclocross model, the CX-50.

The combination of tire clearance, short chainstays and 135mm rear spacing require the chainstays to be elaborately crimped. As it stands, the frame can only fit a 50T big ring and the arms have to have a slightly wider stance.

Originally I had saved a pair of DA 7950 cranks, but when those didn't fit I had to scramble. Luckily RS-500s are dirt cheap on the 'bay. Eventually I'd like to get a pair of CX-70 or Rotor 3D24s but it's been a low priority.

Interesting, thanks for the detailed reply. Know what chainstays were used and what the CS length and BB drop are out of curiosity?
