    Is it ok if I dump pictures of my rides with the Brodie in here? Met up with the girlfriend today, her bike is a Production Privee Oka.

    I do not think it is. The Suntour shifter is indexed and works remarkably well with this version of Dura Ace RD. As far as I know it's the version that came with the first ever STI levers, which is incompatible with almost everything else, apart from the Suntour stuff. It's not perfect but it's...

    1998 Salsa Ala Carte and 2002 Brodie Kinetic

    A few years ago a guy I know indicated that he might want to part ways with one his Salsa Ala Carte frames. I've admired the bike for a number of years, so I instantly messaged him that I'd be willing to give it a new home. It took a few months, but he eventually decided to sell it to me. This...

    Wanted Shimano 739 XT brake lever adjustment blocks

    I've got a set of BL-M739 and both levers are missing one of the two adjustment blocks and screws. #6 https://si.shimano.com/pdfs/ev/EV-BL-M739-1580A.pdf Does anybody know where I can get them? Or does anybody have any spare ones? Thanks!

    Would you be able to contact him in any other way other than this site? He has not been active on here for a good while and does not seem to be checking his PMs.

    Since these last photos I have changed the wheels, rear brake and pads and bars. It rides really well. Pedalling position is excellent. Only the brakes are a bit down on power. I still have to find out how much offset the forks have. Does anybody of you know? The chainstay lost quite a bit...

    Thank you for the kind words! Building it up, almost all the parts were there. One part that I was not sure on was the stem. I like stems to be shorter than the frame would/should have been built up with in the past and the bars to be wider. So I felt quite lucky to have found a Joe Murray...

    As you can already tell the fork is a Brodie Gatorblade. It's the third generation variety with straight legs and CNC-machined dropouts. Frame and fork do not belong together originally. It was definitely used before and the paint on it is slighlty darker. Now the interesting bit: According to...

    More or less. My first mountainbike had canti brakes, the second one V-brakes and the third one hydraulic disc brakes. I got that when I was 17.
