Sold

These are beyond my ability to fix as I don't have the tools nor knowledge, but I bet some folk here have both ! Shimano SPD / Platform PD M 424. 2 pairs, cleats and 2 end caps. Bearing are OK but the end caps fell off. I bought a new one but couldn't fit it. Guess it needs a special tool? £20 + pos...

Re: Chainring wanted for a Bafang mid motor

Converters are available to fit B mid drives. These bolt to the motor in place of the normal B chainring, then you can fit any 104 ,bcd chainring.
Cost me less than a tenner, including bolts.

But I've never heard of a quality alloy bar failing for 'punter' use. Normal daily riding is nothing like racing off road. Buy quality and then stop...

Re: Carbide lamps

I have , and just occasionally, use a carbide light for caving. There are legitimate environmental issues with them but they give a lovely warm light which casts few shadows. Mostly i use modern LED now, as do 99% of cavers. Lasts ages, nil fumes, no heat ( good and bad) has a significant reach whic...

Re: Wheel Truing Jig

Hi. I’m after a wheel truing jig, it’s for occasional use so doesn’t have to be workshop standard. Thanks I have one for sale because I've switched to fat bike and my jig won't fit 197mm hubs. I'm away from home until after Christmas so can't send you details. If you find another meantime fair enou...
