Dates for your diary: The 2011 Toggle Chain Tour will be on Saturday and Sunday 11th & 12th June. There will also be qualifying rule changes for 2011, which will be announced after the Committee (that's me an' Mike, that is) has finished thrashing them out. Any bikes that qualified this year wi...

Re: togglechaintour bikes

Started out with this, which you've all seen already: I know you're looking for an FM hub; would I be right in thinking this is going to be a drop bar 1950's clubman style machine? Spot-on.

Re: togglechaintour bikes

I've decided to sell the James. I like it a lot, I just think I can build something similar but do a much better job, but next time with much lighter components and a lighter 531 frame, tighter "racy" geometry and X-RD5 rear hub to make it more useful. Reckon I should just "ask a pri...

Re: togglechaintour bikes

Glad to hear you are still with us Ade, I dread to think what the wake with your Aunt and Uncle in law could have been like ;-)
