Re: Speedmachine - continuously under repair

As this is a second hand bike I doubt I could claim on a product recall. Also not sure how to tell if it is the original model.
I have had an offer of a replacement part from someone, so hope that works out.

Re: Speedmachine - continuously under repair

Yeah, I assumed it wouldn't be steel, based on how it cracked (like ripping apart an alu can) but it passed the magnet test.

Re: Speedmachine - continuously under repair

Is the BHPC Facebook page the reason why their forum is so quiet?

38mm Pari Moto Tyres * cheaper than the "Cycle" Price

In the latest Cycle they compare Gravel bike tyres, all retailing at ~ £60-70 Here are some trendy Panceti Pari-Moto 38-584 (blackwall version). One has been fitted and ridden <1mile, the other one is brand new. You can't buy these in the stores (unless you are in the US and pay £££££s postage). You...

38mm "gravel" Tyres (700C) , save yourself over £100 on the Magazine Price!

In the latest Cycle they compare Gravel bike tyres, all retailing at ~ £60-70 How about a PAIR of Hutchinson Overides*, 38-622 (non tubless)? Instead of paying the (up to) £140 quoted in the magazine, yours for a PALTRY! £25 (+P&P). (Yes, lockdown has made me go rather loopy). * I liked them so ...

Re: Pictures of your recumbent

Yes, I had considered that, though allegedly the recumbent specific ones have an extra stay at the back. I picked up a used rear (700c) and front (from a kid's bike) from the LBS and bodged that.

Re: Pictures of your recumbent

Sorry to fill up this thread with more off topic SM questions but I assume those are the bespoke SKS mudguards. I'm running some "whateverIcanGetMyHandsOn", which are okay but I can maybe fit them over 40mm marathons. What font tyres are you using and how much space do the mudguards give y...

Re: Lager Singlespeed 56 cm

Based on current condition I reckon £80.
(I know, at that price I'd be better off selling the parts and keeping the wheels as spares 0 but that would involve posting).

Re: Speedmachine - continuously under repair

Well, I couldn't (and still can't) figure out why wrapping around the bolt would make a difference.
BUT IT DOES!
Will have to give it a go on the road/turbo, but where it used to stop in the middle ring it now goes up to top gear and is happy to stay in the middle ring.
Cheers squeeker!

Thanks squeeker.
Upwrong, I'll have a look in the shed for my trigger shifters if they can be of interest to you.

Re: Speedmachine - continuously under repair

Sounds like my issue. I had some road trigger shifters I used briefly, but the amount of welly you had to give them put me off.
