So Obviously the "Plan" for this Build was the all out Eclat Build & it will get there eventually! Just not as fast as I'd hoped sad So It would be quite the Injustice NOT to run what I had on the Utopia Parts! So It's built! I will be riding it ASAP! See what I think of how everything works together etc. I mean the build quality is just that QUALITY! Wethepeoples stuff is IN SANE The Tolerances when putting some of the Parts together is TIGHT! It's as close to perfect as anyone Human could get! Whoever is making their Parts is a VERY Talented Manufacturer! I really cannot wait to take the Bike on its Maiden Ride! I'd hoped today tbh, But I've got a pretty Important Appointment soon so with the shitty Winter Weather it will be dark or getting there when I'm done GRRR!! & I'm out all day tomorrow AAAARRRRGGGGGHHHH!!!!! Saturday!! haha.

The New Wheelset!...

Front Wheel:
Eclat ESC 2.10" Tyre Tan Wall
Super Light Inner Tube
Eclat Rim Strip Black/White
Eclat Polar Aero 36h Rim Black
Eclat Dynamic 36h 3/8ths Front Hub Polished
Eclat Double Butted Stainless Spokes x 36 Black
Eclat 16mm Brass Nipples x 36 Black
Eclat Dynamic Front Hub Guard x 2 Polished
Eclat Venom Chromoly/Plastic Sleeve 4.5" 3/8ths Peg Pair Black

Rear Wheel:
Eclat ESC 2.10" Tyre Tan Wall
Super Light Inner Tube
Eclat Rim Strip Black/White
Eclat Polar Aero 36h Rim Black
Eclat Blind 36h 9t RHD 14mm Male Freecoaster Hub Polished
Eclat Double Butted Stainless Spokes x 36 Black
Eclat 16mm Brass Nipples x 36 Black
The Daily Grind LT Heat Treated 4140 Hub Guard Black - Eclat Wont Be Offering Polished Hub Guards in 2014! sad
The Daily Grind Heat Treated 4140 Drive Side Guard Black
Eclat Venom Chromoly/Plastic Sleeved 4.5" 14mm Peg Pair Black

Not too shabby really eh?! Sadly, Eclat wont be offering the Polished Guards for next year, So I am going to be buying 2 Polished Dynamic Guards with my Crank Stuff Order & Keeping them for the Wheelset later in the Year & as I'm not the greatest fan of Plastic Guards (The Other Option Eclat Are Offering Next Year!) I decided I'd go with the Daily Grind Guards in the Back. The Rear Hub will see the largest beating so it kinda made sense to Me to have the Stronger Guards!

ENJOY!

12/12/2013 9:06 AM

That is such a nice build Jon! Is the geo and feel more for like a hybrid street/flat ride? I want something similar to fuck with, sometimes hate having to find a "spot" just to ride. It would be fun to just go to the nearest flat surface!

|

12/12/2013 10:39 AM

I've only managed to have a little roll around the Front Garden but the Front End feels nice & tight nothing to complain about tbh. I really cannot make an informed comment on how the Geo will really effect the proper riding feel of the Bike! The Chain Stays hmmm, I've got them pushed RIGHT back to just over 13" & I might mention this to the Wethepeople Guys. I think 12.4" Is a little too short! Especially with the uprising in the whole Streetland thing a lot of just Pure Flat Frames are over 13" now! I'm gunna have to bite the bullet & drop it down to about 12.7" ... I mean there are Legit Street Frames with 12.8" Chain Stays (BSD WZA V3) That shit tons of Street Riders have ZERO Issues riding so I think it would be less intimidating for a Street Rider looking to branch out into the whole Streetland deal if the Chain Stays were 12.75"/12.8" Slammed meaning You could comfortably get the Wheel at say 13" with Minimal Peg Over Hang! The Drop Outs are VERY Small & they are THICK! I like that a lot & the Integrated Tensioners are a GOD SEND! The Quality of the Products is beyond belief! Seriously the Best Frame I have owned. Better than any American Frame (Sorry To All You 'MURICAH!!! Guys!) It has way more additional "Features" too! If You are looking into a Streetland, I would HIGHLY Recommend All the Utopia Parts! Even if you didn't bother with an Eclat Build like what I'm going for The Frame, Fork & Bars will see You Good! There are A LOT of Streetland Products popping up! the Shorter than Street but Longer than "Average Flatland" Stems, Short Cranks, Freecoasters, Longer Posts, More Hand Friendly Seats! It's all popping up! I have an idea in My Head For a set of Pegs (Different To The Last Ones! LoL) Which would be straight up Streetland Pegs!

Yes!.. It's incredibly responsive! The Back End is 12.4" Slammed & I'm running it closer to 13" HOWEVER.... If I want to Ride Street on this Beauty then the Back End will have to be pushed back closer to the 12.4" because the Peg Over Hang is a little to much for My liking!.. I wouldn't want to damage the Drop Outs!.. This is the older BMXer in Me!.. I'm sure with the Shape & the fact the Drop Outs are Heat Treated it shouldn't happen, but I've done it in the past & I'd really, REALLY HATE!!! To Damage this from a preventable issue!!!

I'll be switching out some of the Parts in a few weeks time! A Little different to whats planned ^^ up there! ^^ When it comes to the Wheelset, It all depends on the Blind Hub's Release!!! We Make Things are keeping that one under wraps! BUT.. I've seen more & more of their Riders testing out what look to be Production Models! Either it will drop in "Spring" as a surprise with some of their other Products, or it will in fact be the Interbike 2014 time that I have been told!

I'll post up the build plan with the 2nd Wheelset Plan in a second!

Rehab starts in exactly 12 Days!.. I'm really, REALLY Hoping & Wishing that the UK Vital Crew can get together for a "Road Trip" of sorts! There is soooooooo much Street & Many Park's around the Southern UK area that many of us have NEVER touched! Shoulder & Diabetes willing I plan to get as many Clips/Photos that I possibly can!

@ Broken - I cannot loose the Spacer, Fork's are Cut as much as I can get them without cutting into the threads (Something I REALLY Don't like doing!) & I kinda like the Black breaking up the Polished Stem & Headset Cap!

@Skubasteve - The Eclat Duel Headset will be on this Build from now on! The Zodiac Cover in on My Autum Razzia which is awaiting the Wheelset that's on this!..

Cheers Guys!

@ Adam - I'd need Brake Mounts for those! I don't really want a Front Brake on a Bike I will ride Street on, BUT... Now I'm replacing everything on this to be a Wethepeople/Eclat Build, I'll actually have everything back to Re-Build the Autum!.. I'm gunna get it all put together as & when I can swap out Parts on this Beauty! My Autum has Removables on the Fork, So There may well be some experimenting with a Front Brake! Kink Restrain Lever - Tree SB Power Cable - Kink Desist Brake with Front Brake Kit & Fly Manual SPS Clear Pads = FUCK YEAH!!!!

@ Joe - It's only getting started Mate! February 5th New Grips & Bar Ends & A WHOOOOLE New Crank Set Up will be ordered!!

@ Mr. Rastaman! - Cheers Buddy! Obviously You'll get to have a go when We all meet up! As long as I can Ride Your C.R.E.A.M though!!! I gotta Email You about something to do with the Meet too!
