should do the job nicely, looks great too.

get it weighed, it must be around 20lb id guess, when the chains on etc.

so i bought a 68/73 mm bb off deveron
very nice it is too

but i'm clueless about how to use spacers

deveron gave me two as the bb needs to be 73mm

the bb says slide spacer to right, but i measured them and think i need to use both cos of the 5mm difference between 68 and 73mm

but when you fix it to the bike and tighten the bb, it looks ODD - do i need both? see pic

also, on the other side, the bb ring doesn't go flush to the frame - is this normal/right?

hmmmmmmmmm..... :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

the straight one in the original pics is a no name 'FA' chrome fork. bomb proof but the weight was so out of kilter with the frame i swapped it for a cannondale p-bone which the steerer was too short. now i've got a on-one rigid fork very much like an older version of this without the disc tabs..
