Re: togglechaintour bikes

Anyone like to go & fetch it for me? :roll:

*edit*

Just in case that's mis-construed, I've not asked the bloke if I can have it yet!

Re: togglechaintour bikes

Going bowler hats - anyone got any experiance/opinion on poweder coating rims & using brakes on them? Google turns up little, but does suggest the brakes will be poo in the wet. As it's going to be rod brakes, they'll be poo in the dry anyway, let alone the wet.. Just want to know how hard-weari...

Re: vous êtes le premier !

On the TCT last year, we inadvertently stumbled into a Triathalon's cycle stage.. Going uphill, lot's of lycra clad "good mornings" wizzing past two us huffing and puffing on our Roadsters.. At the crest of the hill, two cheeky grins and a "shall we?" - a click of the trigger and...

Thanks for that Mike, I have some on order now.

Thanks,

Tim

Re: togglechaintour bikes

Wonderful - still unsure about TCT2, so it will probably be head banging! A question now for Mike - you did a rather excellent job on revamping a Brooks saddle - I think you said you got the rivets from Brooks but had seen them elsewhere for less - where was the elsewhere please? I have two saddles ...
