Just one thing: buy the boy a new chain. That old one is killing by buzz. b
Thanks - they're Viscount hubs with a Lambert QR skewer on the front - they're very nice up close and the sealed bearings are still in good shape, smooth with no play. Pasela's are lovely on they? Grippy but not too lumpy and fast rolling too. I've got them on two of my bikes now.
Keep on at me about the chain - when I built the bike up, I wanted to keep everything I could, and the chain's still in good working order. But after a lot of degreaser and knackering the missus's tea towels wiping it down, I don't think it gets any cleaner than that.
