Yellow Jagwire cable runs this aft, with matching boots & cable end stops. Lots of fiddling about but eventually happy with the layout & lengths.
This was all explained to Scarlett as we went along but she didn’t fancy doing the technical side but very much wanted to direct the “aesthetics” :roll:

Last pieces of the puzzle have turned up, a pair of Deore LX M550 pedals from Feb 1993. You don’t see many of these about and I had to get these over from Poland!
But for £11 plus £7 shipping, you won’t hear me complain. :D

The ends have a little surface rust so they can have a bath for a couple of days....

Mr Cheese

Many of your posts blow me away with the breath and depth of your knowledge, many are very enlightening

Others I just don’t get - and do you a disservice ...this is one


I know I’m not immune from silly posts - oddball humour that passes people and have been known to insult/confuse the gender of passing cyclists when heckling, but posting schoolboy humour on a thread for a DofE award isn’t a place I chose.


Mucho love and respect

Mr Potatoe (spelt the American way just for THM) :facepalm:
