Glue is indeed the answer, I used some sort of Gorilla Glue Gel.
Unfortunately that Fizik Terra tape lasts about a hundred miles before your hands wear through it. Shame, it’s pretty.

Neil!!!!! What a beautiful chronicle. Thanks for taking the time to write it down. It is very fascinating how our bikes evolve with our tastes and needs which themselves change.
I love the last iteration. The fork, the paint job , the parts. I think it really reflects your attention to details and fine aesthetics sense.

Standing ovation.

Really enjoyed reading this thread. It appears you're now running a 2 speed freewheel? Please tell a little about that. Sorry to copycat, but I'm going to pick up a pair of those Sycip bars and a Mash rack for my fixed Nature Boy commuter.

I originally bought the White Industries Dos ENO as a way for me to play with my gearing whilst recovering from back surgery. I had previously run a single 17T out back and thought a 16/18T would give me a little versatility. As the years went by it stayed in the 18T. Can’t recall when I last ran 16T!

Dang dude, I see this thing all the time and had no idea how extensive the history of it was. That was cool to read.

Wow, what a storyboard : you are genius storyteller and , by the look of things, a great artist.

Reading this made my day.

Compliments!
