Still not convinced of the 29er arguement and I have been riding my bodged example but i'm probably too set in my ways.

Anyhoo its nice to know there are still bargains to be had in ebay land. Just received a single speed rear wheel and disc hubbed front wheel with cartridge bearings I purchased at the buy it now price of £20 :D
Both seem smooth and true even if the rims are basic rigida items but the rear hubs a DMR Revolver and the front a Grimeca.


I am totally convinced velo, espesh now that I have some front bounce- 29ers do look a bit gammy but I've got the retro bikes for the good looks.

It's always good when ebay congers up a bargain, well in!

Picked up some spokes from Rose.de at the PO this morning, then went for a slightly slippy ride on the Stumpy. 8)

Wife has gone out for the evening, so settle down to build some wheels only to find that the DT Swiss spoke calculator has only gone and given me the wrong lengths. :evil:

Check up on the wheelpro and the Sapim ones, and sure enough, they both tally up.

Suppose I'll have to watch Star Trek now. :cry:

Moral of the story. Don't trust the DT Swiss spoke calc. It's a bag of shite. :evil: :x :evil:

btw, you gonna tell us what the job is Rob?

Hell fire rob it's no hezus the mex again is it ?
Last time he made this sort of offer he was a "free" man ,I take it he's out again ?
For those that don't know
It involved rob (us) running around menthil docks opening 40ft shipping containers looking for packages of "Texmex" spices
The upshot of this was 42 (ish) south American businessmen in the bay area
Trying to off load their mex dollars in the 24hr bet and booze store
Mizz o'shea has never been the same since

Made the mistake of taking Sharron with me when I went to visit cat protection shelter. We now have TWO new additions to household. Still, hopefully stop her talking about kids for a while.
