Kaiser I'll not be needing your Bombers now I have these "free" ones - sorry.

If I get a inch ahead crown for these bombers do you engineering types think it would be ok to thread the steerer or should I go out and buy a (hard to find) 1 inch ahead headset (I've only just bought and fitted the threaded headset)

I don't think 1" threadless headsets are that hard to find, there be a few on the bay and crc also have some. Not sure about the quality mind.

Anyone got a 1 1/8th threadless headset knocking about that is taking up valuable space that they need rid off?

Oh and preferably not black. In fact the brighter the better.

Of course I'm willing to pay.

That would be lovely but I suspect it may be out of my price range. What do you want for it?

I think i really have to try and sell this though i dont want to,skint and the bills are in :cry:
I built it im mind for a mate and my brother in law to use,but my mates back is constantly fubar and the inlaw doesnt have the time.As its a bit wee for me i'd rather it went complete to someone it would fit better
Shame really,it turned out ever so well.
Though its the first time ive ridden a single speed i found it easy on the 37/16 set up for around Glasgow including most hills

Notable points:
Got to be the wheels :D ,especially the rear one,a brand new ti-glide with a twist,the twist being it came with a 12mm bolt through axle and bearings.Had to be either a one off cnc'd by some other nutter with too much money and too much time,or it slipped out of the Hope factory prototype department.I've spoken to hope and although he cant remember exactly if they tried one out or not as there was a lot on the drawing board back then
amazing to find a brand new ti glide but to have it laced to a brand new matching red x517 and the 12mm bolt through is makes the rear at least as rare as they come.
Both wheels handbuilt by a highly regarded Scottish wheelbuilder
AC cranks.Very good quality ,fair bit of the ano has rubbed off the frnt but overall they're fine
Stem is rather scratched but the overall look with the cnc'ing makes up for it.
Brakes are in excellent condition they work flawlessly and are powerful as ****

Buy some of my other bits-pedals/m900 cranks/hope stuff and i can keep it :D
