He certainly is, I’ve enjoyed working closely with him (easy when he’s only 20 miles away) on some of the more bespoke CB typefaces.

But I’ve come home to a job list as someone’s viewing our house tomorrow..... (why do wives make everything else a priority?) :(

So tonight, I’m allowed to play with my sticker album!

But before I crack on with that, I officially started the build last night with…of course… the Bottom Bracket!
A Shimano Deore XT BB-UN72 sealed cartridge from 1996, a bit scratched up on the surface, far from NOS, but it runs really smooth and to be honest the budget has gone on some more visible parts.

The threads in the shell did need a little restorative work and after spraying the inside of the BB shell with dry PTFE, they now work a dream.

Now that’s a real comment ^^^ :D ..... plastic cup :shock: :facepalm:

Jesus Christ Mr Peach with slap dash attention to detail like that anyone would think your rebuilding a crappy Carrera, and itching to covering it in stickers

Better be off now, as I’ll have LGF after me for knocking under valued brands :lol:
