Ouch! I guess the steerer held it (and your face) together on the journey, luck man. Never seen a crack follow the lug like that.

Me neither, it's like the steel had been torn. :(

Just need another frame to hang everything off. In the mean time <sniff>* I'm bikeless <sob>.



*Hopeless attempt to pluck at the old heartstrings! :lol:

It's my fixed gear green meanie (see signature), originally a Reynolds 501 Falcon frame. Towards the end I think the powder coating was holding it together. :?

Started on the xizang tonight for skye, tried fitting my new disc wheels from Eck - gutted that the rear doesn't fit, bracket won't line up with the frame. Eck will know how I feel, he saw my face when I picked them up - like a school kid with sweeties.

I'm going to try another of my calipers tomorrow and try to work out what i'll need bracket wise. If that fails, I'll be using a cheapy wheel from my wifes bike for the skye ride.


So TK - that, erm, rear wheel not really much use then. S'pose you'll be having to move it on :( Shame really as I know how much you wanted one :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:


So - a tenner OK then?

:P :P :P :P :P
