<Wot no pictures?  - Soon to be addressed>

I seem to have become the owner of a Singular peregrine frame.  This is to become a touring bike project.  Plans are:

Respray
Alfine 11 disc hub
Disc hub dynamo
Hydraulic discs
Tubeless rims & tyres
Bullhorn bars
Jtek 11 lever
Tubus racks

Theme will be black/silver.

The frame looks in good condition with a few scratches and chips in the paintwork.  I am really looking forward to getting this on the road, and have only just talked myself out of getting a belt drive for it.

The Peregrine ticks most of the boxes of aesthetics for me:
Horizontal top tube
Hub gear compatible
Curved forks
Fork crown
Disc brakes

I will update this thread as i go along.
Getting there...

Looking forward to seeing this progress.  :thumbsup:

Welcome to the club! I'm sure you'll be very happy with it. I am with mine

Was it the small on on eBay recently that I was also watching with interest? ;-)

I've got an Osprey (rim-braked more roadie biased brother), and despite most of the numbers being 'wrong' on paper it is the best bike I've ever owned for just riding/audax, super comfy, nimble but planted and surprisingly quick for what it is, if the Peregrine is anything like it it should be awesome!
