Modernising An 80s Frame Part 1

One of our most popular jobs in the frame shop is modernising an old frame to take modern components. In the cas of this Bob Jackson that meant widening the rear end to accept a modern wheel and fitting an allen key brake bridge to take modern brakes.

Its a great way to breath a new lease of life into an old frame that otherwise might just get scrapped.

This customer also wanted to replace some of the parts on the bike which were getting a little tired.  We keep the full range of Cinelli quill stems as well as Nitto.
