Paint job finished on Oli's tour bike, and first ride!
Updated: Jun 6, 2021
The bike is resprayed and ready, just put all the components back on and did my first ride of many to come!
I originally got the old Dawes Reynolds 531 frame off eBay, I have stripped, sanded and resprayed the bike.
Before the tour I have got to find a 1" fork that will be suitable for touring with a wide tyre clearance and preferably some mounting holes for a front rack/bags. The current carbon fork will not suffice for the journey across the world with its 28mm tyre clearance.
Then all that is left is to find some more heavy duty wheels that will take on the worlds roads!
