It's a stunner amongst a lot of very nice S/S bikes, that's the bike that made me want to have a go at S/Speeding. I never want a go on it though mate as it'll only make mine feel shoite. Very Happy

Laughing Laughing

Nah, it won't.. It's now become my main bike!

Even whe the 456 was fully built, I'd reach for this one first!

Very smart moto and aston that looks mint! Yours are all very uniform, mine is a big mismatch of random parts! Including a bodge job on the headset, using a brass washer, works fine though. Laughing

the cage on the chain tensioner fell off on the way to work today, cage bit was catching, not sure why. screwed it back on for now, have i fitted it wrong, or used the wrong chain?


Got some new brakes fitted. Wider handlebars on the way and a shorter stem. Shall get a new pic later.

Off to the black mountains on 20th , I might be brave and assault it on the s/s!

Could be the chain line not quite spot on Nant? mine rubbed at first but just adjusted the doofer and it was fine - but if the chain line is out the doofer will rub no matter what.

Very lucky with mine - everything just sort of matched - got a Funn stem and bars seperately, used but in as new nick, for £25 the pair and they look really good I think. Certainly feel nice to ride.

Only 'new' parts on my S/S are the brakes, forks chain and head doctor, so all in all it turned out much smarter than expected - or even intended really!

Bit of fine tweaking solved the issue. i've been running a 36 tooth on the front and a 18 on the back and have been up some killer hills. Yet to really go up any rough hills.

Off to brecon beacons end of this week. Would it be worthwhile to put the smaller ring on? Will i struggle, or will i be a machine!! Twisted Evil . Maybe ill put the smaller ring in the bag, and do a mid hill chain ring change along with a chain tool if its a bit heavy going.

Got this one out ready for tomorrow, bought it for training, put a 42t front and 18t rear on with some schwalbe land cruisers. Not too comfy but it's very quick. Making strange creaking noises and seems a bit flexy. Oh dear.

Not a bad idea that, to carry a spare ring. Dead easy to change don't need to remove the cranks on mine.

Might be why the frame is making mad noises, was alright last week. Think I'll go to Llandegla or somewhere instead tomorrow, didn't fancy another drive though!

Heres mine, is my commuting machine, its a 90's Rayleigh I picked up for nothing years back, then most things have been changed on it for one reason or another, again with just old bits laying around, like steel flat handle bars from my wifes old bike. Its my commuter bike.

I had stripped it raw and covered it in Krust and waxoyl, but still once the salt was on the road it needed regular reapplication (winter before it was Krust and lacquer. but the salt got under that).



So I sprayed it black at christmas time (after hacking off unused bits like rack mounts and bottle mounts).



I want to go fixed gear, if I get hold of a disc compatible hub I'll bolt the cog on in place of the disc Smile

Working on yet another last night, I'll take an outdoor picture when I get round to riding it. Not sure if the 32-16 will be ok, may get a 14 just incase. Also swapping the jockey wheel tensioner for a sturdy roller type one.
