steel frame and enve fork looks weird
I purchased a 2011 Record Ace a month ago, love it!
Awesome video, thanks!
Question: when you were putting the back brake on, what’s the bar with hole you’re putting it on called?
That is a pretty frame!
There is absolutely nothing basic about this bike! Ridiculous title.
Great video and thanks for the effort, A LOT of very useful info here. That little chain spanner tool to hold the chain is brilliant. I have never seen one before, and looked online and was unable to locate this tool. Any recommendations on where to purchase one of those tools??? Thanks in advance.
Great video! Very clearly explained and filmed. Nice build. Attention to detail seems to be a consistent theme here. As someone a little on the OCD side I appreciate that. Great work, thanks! A+
P.S. Do you use this bike as a commuter/touring bike, or do you race it at all? The components are certainly race-worthy, but overall it has an urban/cafe bike feel. Seems to have the potential to be a nice all-rounder, just wondering how that panned out, 2+ yrs later.
White saddle black bar tape combo fail!
I like that frame!
Great video!! Thanks!
Nice Build. Can i get details of the list of components for this build?
Hi, what is the name of the thing you replaced for the downtube shifters?
You sized the chain incorrectly and it’s triggering my autism.
no need for dura ace unless your pro.. or rich..
Amazing. Thank you, this was a huge help
Wow that is a badass but elegant bike you built. Now I will be searching for an old frame kind of wondering what year that is I’m guessing it’s probably early to mid 70s??? Right now I have a trek 1400 which is pretty much the tubing shape of an old-school frame however it is Aluminum and I’m basically was wanting to build it the same way you will yours however this Frame is too big for me it is a 58 cm frame where I would need more like a 54 and I hate to put money into this one for that fact. Also I did want to say great video excellent editing
Best video about how to build a bike, congrats!
Rim brakes on a carbon wheel?
All carbon 5-7 nm,, pretty much
Really excellent instructions…gives me confidence for a build I’m attempting in a couple weeks.
Question: In the beginning the fork post was longer than necessary but by the end it was the correct length. What did you do there? Did you have to trim the fork post?
The brake cable housing that goes into the shifter is there a ferrule of cap ? Or is it just the cable into the shifter ?
How did you install an 11 speed cassette on a vintage Raleigh International?
That’s like saying “Your basic Ferrari F40”. But it is truly wonderful to see Dura-Ace on a beautiful steel frame. Thank you for making a video on this rolling piece of art.
I get very excited whenever I see a bike being build. I just bought a second hand Sedona DX women bicycle and gave it a full service. Now my GF is able to cycle 3 hrs nonstop with me and her average speed increased by 2km/h.
It is basic people… Basic does not mean cheap… Tis a basic bike build, simple old school frame with external routing for easier, basic assembly.
this was very instructive
great video. You explained this much better than a lot of ‘pros’
Very well explained and filmed! Helped me a lot! Thany you 😀
I understand it, and if I understand it everyone else does. So, Dura Ace is basic, Campagnolo Super Record is the next level.
This was very helpful! I didn’t get the guide for the front d. Can’t seem to get it right! Very frustrating! Any advice?
I enjoyed your video. I just bought a new bike and learning more about bikes everyday.
this was great. Is that an older Raleigh that was restored or is that a newer one? i have a late 80s Cinelli i want to do a newer groupo on for kind of a retro modern bike. thanks for the inspiration.
Headset and Bottom Bracket already in, the hard bits really.
Outstanding walkthrough. Thanks!!
