    ORBO GT - The Pigeon Roost

    Thank you! I’m just trying to latch onto a good idea. Still working on colors and lines. I did discover some other nice lines. I fliiped the frame over to give it a once underneath and saw this. Some nice lines. I got to thinking what if….. what if I put a 26” in the rear and 20” front on a...

    ORBO GT - The Pigeon Roost

    Made some extensions so I can fit a 26” rear rack on the front of the 700c fork. Not the nicest looking extensions but they’ll work for now. One day I’ll be brave enough to start brazing and install some bosses on the fork itself. Other then taking it on a test ride later this afternoon it’s...

    ORBO Sticker Prize Pack - SWBO & ORBO

    Don’t have a good pic of the stickers yet but I made myself a ORBO participant sticker. You can kinda see it hidden under the original pic. I’ll post a shot when I get one.

    ORBO Sticker Prize Pack - SWBO & ORBO

    I was having a couple of OREO’s with my coffee this morning and thought the box said ORBO. Here’s the inspiration behind the stickers.

    ORBO GT - The Pigeon Roost

    Annnnnnd we’re back to the 700c fork. I can’t make up my mind and I would’ve asked myself often how the bike would’ve felt with a 700 front wheel and a 26 rear.

    Anyone have a "BMXed" out cruiser 5 or klunker 5?

    It was a 5 speed at some point.

    ORBO GT - The Pigeon Roost

    I took apart the Judy and luckily it already had race springs, but I need to replace the damper cartridge. Found an aluminum body one but it’s $70 before shipping. This years motto is “let it fund itself” I just sold a 90’s Marin frame for $25 so that leaves $45 plus shipping to go. Most...

    ORBO GT - The Pigeon Roost

    I have 2 vintage Roxshox forks. Judy XC Quadra 10 So far I’ve read the Judy ‘a we’re trash to some and ok for others. They prob both need to be rebuilt even though they both have good spring action. I haven’t heard much negative about the Quadra yet but I’m just starting my research. Anyone...

    Plans change buts it’s alright. Most likely running a 26 all around on a MTB fork. It is a OFF ROAD Build Off is it not? Here’s the likely groupset I’ll be running.

    ORBO GT - The Pigeon Roost

    Here we go finally two wheels that almost match in color and height. I also love the fact that it looks like it’s going fast. Going to build it up over the weekend and go for a dry run. Get a feel for the geometry.

    ORBO GT - The Pigeon Roost

    I was looking at everyone’s builds and there’s some real good builds going on! I go back and forth between a 700c and 26” wheel for the GT. I made a layover comparison and here it is. Considering if I go with the 700 it would be on a 700x47 tire. The pic show a 38c tire. I like the angle...

    ORBO GT - The Pigeon Roost

    Looking at pigeons for inspiration. I even asked BING Chat to create me a bicycle inspired by a pigeon and it wasn’t far off from what I was thinking color wise. I’ll have some help in the paint dept. my sister gifted me her cricut machine. That machine can make it all.
