All City Mr. Pink

Finally going to post my Mr. Pink here because I've been playing around with it, getting it where I want it.

I believe this is a 2010 with the PF30 BB (BSA adapters in there, works great). Came with the Whiskey No 7 carbon fork and the original uncut steel fork.

Here it is post-delivery:

Current state:

It came with Red 22 HydroR group and B-dop offset pads since this is a mid-reach frame. Probably the lightest mid-reach setup around! I was pretty sure I would have sold the Red 22 but have really warmed to the shifting and even the extra hood shape.

I added a Force 22 crankset, Thomson elite post, changed to Toupe saddle, 6800 pedals, Zipp aero skewers, Bontrager aero bar (alloy) in 38cm. My fave. King SS cages. Now I just need to address the heinously long shift cable housings. I'm getting back the red CK45 on Belgium + wheelset and will likely throw those on here with GP4KS2 23s and latex tubes for fast days.

And yes, my Ritchey Speedmax tires fit on this bike.

With a pedal and tire change it will be a mixed terrain beast.

I like your build a lot. Especially with the HydroRim stuff.. That is a great way to build up that bike, glad you are enjoying it.


Makes me a bit bummed I missed out on one in my size earlier this year..

Thanks gents. The bang-for-your-buck value is high with this one. It rides so well too. I railed a huge pothole that pinch flatted the rear tube but it didn't even really feel that bad..

Pretty sharp bike, how do the hydro rim brakes feel compared to discs?

I'm curious as well.. been considering trying to snag a set for one of my bikes, but haven't pulled the trigger yet to have a rim brake bike to match my Sram hydro disc TwinSix..

Nice blue Pink. Those hoods look cool with the stem being parallel to the tops.

What's that with the minilites behind it?

Thanks gents, I think the HydroR brakes feel pretty good. I wouldn't say I'm wanting for power or almost flipping over the bars. However, the pads are pretty crappy and the braking power is still quite good. I need to change those and I bet it'll be a teeth knocker-outer.

I took some new pics with the new wheels.

The car is my 1994 Miata (62k miles, a garage queen before I got it). I DD my cargo bike so it gets like 3 drives a month:

Some silliness over the weekend. Apparently I could race cross and have reasonable mud clearance.
