Frustratingly a couple of bits have been held up by customs....1 part 4 days so far :x Useless!

Although my King Wheels did come through customs with no duty :shock: Seller had declared a value of $40 :shock:

Anyway, here's some full bike shots! The brakes pictured are going to be replaced by mono minis.

I can't put the chain on until my Paul components tensioner arrives :shock: Customs, eh?

Would anyone know how to remove a brake stud? I have got 3 out, but the final one seems to be welded in with Kryptonite!!!! I've tried heating it, beating it, pleading with it, spanners, shifting spanners, mole grips, WD40, Worship and still the little bleeder remains steadfast :shock: (Yes, I have been trying to undo it the correct direction :wink: )

what i've done with a couple stuck studs that were on a set of forks i'm readying to paint is this,

get a really big vice thats bolted to a bench

clamp the offending stud tightly in said vice


spray some liquid wrench down the back of thestud

leave for about 30min

then use the forks as a lever

worked for me, but cant use the studs again as i squashed them slightly.

Just seen this in the flesh so to speak and it is absolutely stunning, the pics really don't do the colours justice.
