Cleaned up the lines, m732 levers. Changed the wheels and tyres. Getting blacker. Should the post QR go?

Black chainring, and u brake? Then done..........for now.

Such a lovely thing, seemed a shame to cover it in guards, lights etc.


This was mentioned yesterday before the great axle debate started.

Shall I go and measure the current wheels and the parallax ones to settle whether or not I'm committing frame abuse to the grand total of 2.5mm per side?



Personally, i'd love to know the OLD of your 7-speed STX-RC parallax hub.



DITTO.

I'll give five pounds to a charity of your choice if he's got a 130mm STX-RC hub.

At least we are all talking about the same hubs at last.....LOL.

Neil was confident it was when he built it.

I hope it is, but then then by the look of it, a lot of the parts came off the Marin. WAS that a 7 or 8spd Bike...?

What is needed is a Picture of the bike and the wheel/hub used.

Sadly regardless, it Needs to be a 130 axle for this frame. (which was the point)
