New Albion Homebrew construct | Street Bike, Biking Boards

After a good quantity of leg work evaluating frames, I lately bought a New Albion frameset to construct up. The mannequin known as Homebrew. I ordered them by way of a store that’s primarily an web retailer, however has a neighborhood brick and mortar location close by. Listed below are the pictures through the New Albion website.

I actually didn’t know a lot about New Albion moving into, apart from they’re now affiliated with SOMA, who I do know make good metal bikes (I’ve owned a Stanyan beforehand). Since there isn’t a lot about New Albion right here, I believed I’d share a bit of in regards to the construct course of.

The body set arrived nicely wrapped and in glorious form. Tange Champion 2 tubes on the body. Tange Status for the forks. The pink is what I’d describe as a candy-apple or a Ferrari pink. The welds are clear.

I’ve a can of ProGold on the way in which to deal with the body and forks earlier than I begin constructing something up.

After that, first up will likely be a GXP backside bracket and a Velo-Orange headset…

Extra to return.
