Mmmmm. Nice. Don't know whether to use them on my builds, or keep hold of them all packaged up.

picked this up today from a cheap bike shop, skf bb has been butchered by somebody (obviously didn't have the right tool) so that'll be my first job.
Did these come with stx as standard?

Just managed finally to get Hope C2 caliper No11. Been a long wait :D

A shame theres no No8, though someone did say there was in the O2 calipers but I cant find one. There is a No8 in mini, but im not sure it would suit the project.

Just need to come up with a nice back piece, and the quartz clock mechanism.

A nice back piece, Tioga disc drive? Or just one of the disc wheel covers. Would be a big clock though.

Are you going to use fork lower legs as hands? A spoke for the second hand?

What do you have planned for the cuckoo?

Lower legs for hands :shock: Bloody hell, this isnt big ben im building here :lol: the quartz movement can only do small lightweight hands.
Now, if i had a proper movement that could likely deal with that much weight, but the small quartz youre stuck with a limited choice of hands.
15-16" as a max diameter. isnt too big and isnt too small. I'd like to incorperate something disc like for it, referencing cycling ,but the calipers kind of limit the direction to Hope tech stuff history and such. So maybe a large rotor as a backing, inset into it flush.


I guess im fortunate to own these bits to make this with. It would be a struggle now to find all these calipers. Plus the prototype No10 makes it kind of unique.


Might even be worth 20 quid on ebay :lol:
