Re: Titanium Forks For Sale

Extra question; what's the axle-crown height please?

Re: Which support for Nelson Longflap

Thanks for that Richard, I ended up filing channels in my support to allow it sit snug against the saddle rails just as they bend upwards towards the cantle. I like that your solution allows you to use the full length of the saddle rail for adjustment; I'll have to take another look at mine as I wou...

Re: Carradice sadle bag

Just for info, I don't think any of those brackets suit the attachment zip-tied to the bag; that one clips into the Carradice Bagman QR. You could send it my way if no-one else has the bracket to use it with, very handy for using on a second bag! [emoji6] Not familiar with the scaffolding one, presu...

Re: Quick release for saddle, rather than seatpost

Good evening, Sorry for potentially creating a zombie thread, but I too am in the market for such a quick-release saddle clamp and think I may have found a product from Metropolis that fits the bill 'Metropolis SB20 Seatpost with QR'. I'm not sure if links to retailers are allowed, so I'll leave yo...

Re: Do you think it's possible to adjust these caliper brakes enough to accomodate this new rim?

So, next question: what kind of brake cable do you require, flat bar/mtb barrel style, or drop bar/road pear type? I've got a good stash of the former and would be happy to send a few to keep your good lady well supplied! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200606/720e290ed239e583d9c92a2ddcdd0e0e.jpg...

Re: big but cumfy

The stem is a 100mm but I’m tempted to change it to a 50 or 80mm is this a good move? 50mm is very extreme, you'll potentially end up with with incredibly sharp, twitchy steering. 80mm might be more manageable. Do you have any cycling friends nearby who could lend you different sizes to try? I'm a ...

Re: Do you think it's possible to adjust these caliper brakes enough to accomodate this new rim?

In-line adjuster is a great shout, I bet it would take up just enough slack to work! Just had a quick search and Jagwire or Shimano seem to have the greatest range, although this bargain one looks promising too. Apologies if this is patronising, but just make sure you buy the correct diameter: brake...

Re: Do you think it's possible to adjust these caliper brakes enough to accomodate this new rim?

Agree it should be no problem, and you'll likely only have to replace the cable when moving to the wider rim: moving back to the narrower one you'll be shortening the cable so clamping a fresh section, with the potentially compromised area now being after the clamp. So once a year at most, which is ...

Re: big but cumfy

If you're comfy and in control, you're onto a winner, but my one observation is that the short high (ish) stem and high position of your levers makes it look like you may struggling to stretch to the bars? Hopefully it's just that you're still tweaking it! I certainly wouldn't be rushing out to swap...
