Raven Tour 390 Step Through
« on: April 16, 2018, 05:50:05 AM »
I finished building up the Raven Tour 390 Step Through I bought a few weeks ago.

This bike is for use by visitors to our island flat, and by my wife when we use the flat ourselves.

I built it up with a Nexus Premium 8 speed hub and Chainglider for low maintenance.

Bars are what I call "sit up and beg", giving a very upright position.

Although the frame is small and short, I can ride the bike myself, and have done about 60 km of shakedown rides to try and eliminate any post-build issues, it will also be tested by my wife before I let the visitors use it.

Very helpful, Martin.

I especially like how you've clamped the lower half of the spacer stack so you can quickly juggle handlebar height if needed/desired on the uncut steerer without affecting headset adjustment.

You could even substitute a longer reach stem to "open" things up a bit for larger riders.

Well done.

All the best,

Dan.
