Very nice :) Note to self to stop polishing the Bob Jackson and put my ALAN together :)

Let me know how you like the Maxxis tyres, I run Maxxis detonators on my Basso and can't make up my mind about them.

Cheers

Shaun

I will do Shaun, I've been running tubs on the ALAN for the last few weeks and I can't make my mind up about them

nice, very nice 8) . I've got a pair of Open 4CD's on Ultegra/600 hubs which I really like & I found standard pads worked fine but I've also a pair of Open 4 Ceramics on Dura Ace 8 speed that are now on my touring bike (because I can..yay me) however I'd love a set of Mavic 571 hubs...absolutely gorgeous.....

Any brake pad for aluminium rims should be ok, the grey anodising will wear off with use in any case, and I believe that the braking performance is actually better once the anodised coating has worn off.

PS any idea how the lever bosses are attached on an ALAN, my left lever is half rotated off but still attached.
