Re: Mystery fancy lugged frame.

Wondering if it may possibly be a design from Trevor Jarvis in Tenbury Wells, he seems to specialize in fancy lugwork, the present range is here http://www.tjcycles.co.uk/lugs.htm , none look like those on your frame but he also states that there are many discontinued lines, maybe worth dropping him...

What do you have to do to upset a hornet? Swear at them? Call them names? Pull your tongue out? Poking them in the eye with a lens can irritate them slightly! http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3121/2477258050_ceee371f83_o.jpg http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3022/2477258044_ebb1f031c5_o.jpg Adrian

Had a similar rattle when I built my bike up and like you found it difficult to pinpoint where the noise was originating from, eventually traced it to the Cateye computer rattling intermittently in its bracket on the bars, a piece of insulating tape between the bracket and the computer solved the pr...

I too own a Sherpa and cannot fault it, its running on 26 x 2 Marathon Supremes and incredibly comfortable, loaded or unloaded. Very stable when fully loaded, feels almost like its on rails, very confidence inspiring even on quick descents. Unladen its quicker and more fun than it should be, a great...

Hi jonf, I think there may still be a few of the old steel framed Dawes Sardar left at the Bike Shed, http://www.bikesheduk.com/ , look under tourers, a little over your budget but by all accounts a strong and versatile machine. Nearly bought one myself but in the end saved a little longer and bough...

Thanks zenzinnia, gave Spa a ring and asked their advice, they said the new fixings were easier to fit to a rack but they were less secure and prone to rattling, so looks like I'm going to go for the older Carradice type fittings.

I have these bars too and find them extremely comfortable, like julk they keep my shoulders relaxed and seem to help prevent wrist and hand ache. I have the Ergon grips fitted and these really do work well in combination with the bars.

Thank you Julk that's helpful, I'm still undecided though, I'm hoping to use these panniers for all purposes even shopping and am still unsure which fittings to go for, its a lot of money for me if I make the wrong decision.

Thanks again

Thanks for the replies, zenzinnia, I hadn't thought about carrying them off the bike so that's a good point, thank you. Thirdcrank, I think the old ones I was referring to are your newer ones with the red ratchet, they have just launched a newer one still that is supposedly easier to fix and remove ...
