Re: Frame ding - should I be concerned?

Or a tin of touch up paint from Halfords or a decent car accessory shop, usually comes with it's own brush.

And you could consider car body filler in the dent just to give a smoother finish. Frame enammelers often fill little dings, usually with brass/ silver solder before refinishing.

Re: DiaCompe and Weinmann traditional brake levers

Steve

You have a PM re Dia Compe levers.

Is that a Trike in the Picture with the double brakes?

Any chance of a close up of how the brakes are configured to share on the On Three Wheels Trike riders forum?

Re: Another puncture thread

Not that hot on physics (if you will pardon the pun) but have a recollection of seeing some brake blocks (Salmon?)? With a disc arrangement betwixt brake caliper arm and pad or around the pad and I believe that the idea was to dissipate heat quickly. Not in the flesh, in an ad and very pricey and so...

Re: Another puncture thread

You probably already know this but just in case you don't. Is the patch size an issue.? I use feather edge patches that are about the size of your little finger tip which aren't always that easy to source. It's all you need for 90% of pin prick/thorn punctures. Larger patches are very difficult to f...

Re: Blu Tack

You can get Super Glue with activator that stays tacky till you spray the fixer which might help if you are 100% sure that the bracket is where you really want it. Not used it on Mudguards myself though. How about a Gasket cut from a discarded tube between the Bracket and the Mudguard or the Brake a...
