My U-brakes an old Dia-Compe BMX item and it does work bloody well but it was a bugger to set up. Bike originally came with a Roller-Cam brake but they're rare and not cheap so I persevere with the U-brake.


Just so you know I picked up my nos XCD rollercam for 8 quid posted, they are out there and they are cheap. I'll keep a look out for you if you want.

went to the hospital about the knee and it appears that I have a tear in my meniscus, pretty much the same thing as the other knee 15 years ago- not booked in for the day surgery yet but will see how things go over the next 2 months- not oesteoarthritis as was first thought :D

Great news Gaz, try and book your op so you miss the worst of the winter - or do you not need time off for key hole?

Today i had arrive,a nice pair of XT m730 thumbies :D ,theyre to replace the deore ones on the rudy and leave me with only the pedals to find to complete the m730 groupset :D :D:D
Perhaps an XT seatpost too but its not critical as the purple post suits better.


I just need to convince Gazz to part with his XT pedals :? :lol:
