For Some Reason, These Are Enjoyable To Watch

Recommended Posts

I randomly find myself watching this guy's build videos.  Very fun in an odd sort of way :)

I watch them all the time too.

There is a YouTube channel Dub I think and the guy restores all sorts of stuff. He’s doing a series on turning an old steel bike into a gravel bike. He does the obvious like cold setting the stays but welded on disc brake tabs, through axles & such.

He’s on the third video and just finished the paint.  I’m totally sucked in and can’t wait to see the build.

Not yet.  Pretty amazed at some of the cutting and welding.

Now I have.  Sweet bike.

Not sure what a Tanpan SH11 was.  Thought maybe a clutch of sorts, but apparently made to work well with clutches.

I was wondering the same. I figured it had something to do with pull ratios between road & Mtn shifters.  

I’d still be a little concerned about those forks. Cutting that notch for disc clearance and then adding discs to the same fork leg gives me the heebie jeebies. Maybe it’s strong enough..

Still a really cool project.

I said the same thing about the cutting and adding disc brakes.  A LOT of torque on that front fork concentrated on just one leg.  Not sure how that works out, but  still neat to watch it all play out.

I think that’s why he added the through axle. It does integrate the whole front end to one one unit but that cut down leg does seem like a weak link.
