Spindles aren't Alloy on my 405/605's , I know because I have had them to bits to extend the threaded bit at the back for use on the trike. Can't comment on Carrera , never messed with one but allot through bold does seem unlikely t...

Re: When did Centre-pull brakes take over from Side-pull ?

One or two sidepull manufacturers did think about 'centering' a sidepull brake. Here is an image of a Weinman 605 (quite an upmarket brake) but I know they used it on their 'lower end' brakes too , you needed a special tool with an allen key head in it that just slips in at the front ideally, althou...

Re: Seat bolt identification

Just been into the garage, the one that fits my Rogers is 5/16 by 9/16 BSF if anyone else is looking (as a starting point, no guarantee they are all the same thread! .)

Re: Skewer replacement

Didn't factor in the Disc Brake.
I don't have much Disc Brake experience , Brucey usually talks a lot of sense and has lots of experience .

Re: Skewer replacement

I think you already have a form of quick release skewer with a security feature, the Usual Lever cam arm having been repleced with an Allen key. Undo the Allen bolt , and the scenery should then be sloppy and the wheel loose. Go to the other side and unscrew the cap ( should only be finger tight) it...

Re: Does anyone recognise this old frame

We now believe this is a Frank Southall Frame.
Thanks for all your input, particularly impressed with a link to the Brakes List, which has told us the Brakes on the frame a Bowden. :)

Re: Shimano BR MC70 Cantilever Brake

Have you sorted this out yet?
I have a brand new Shimano Canti, different model but looks to have the identical bit you have nadgered
But just the one, heaven knows where the other one is.
Let me know if you still need it .
