Do you know the size of the thread for the barrel adjuster on the rear canti bridge? Mine was running V's and the adjuster is long gone!

Still looking great btw 8)


I used one I had lying around off a headset cable hanger as it was black, in the past for my old mongoose iboc I used one of these:

I think it's a standard thread m4 maybe.

Cheers! I think original scheme, i really like raidan's blue would be best but I wasn't up for the work involved, so just went with a bright colour I like!

Reviews would be great 8)

Any progress on these?

Failing that. How about some new pics of this beauty?

Here's how it looks right now.....

Few changes, MT60 crankset, black low risers to match seatpost.

Pink computer temp rigged up as cadence meter (I use this on the turbo trainer with a rear wheel swap).

SKS guards (the originals!) and Blackburn MTN rack fitted for upcoming C2C, will also be fitting my Schwalbe Hurricanes and bar ends soon for that.

And one from Bridlington the other weekend at the end of the Way of the Roses CtC.

23 year old bike was faultless thanks to mainly retrobike sourced components :)

Looking smart still. I wouldn't change a thing.

The time has come to part with this :(

This build has taken me on two coast to coast jaunts and countless other trips around Cumbria. However a Cyclo-Cross bike is calling and its one in-one out at the moment.

I will probably part it out over the next few weeks unless a decent offer lands.
