    Purbecks Ride 4th Oct. AFTERMATH

    Great ride today, great weather and great company. Started off with Jonnyboy666 and Ben getting to mine while I was doing the finishing touches on my Jamis. The 8.5 mile ride to the ferry didn't go down well with the boys. A quick bacon and egg roll waiting for the Ferry and we met up with...

    1989 Jamis Dakar Sport - with history

    I bought a Jamis Dakar Sport frameset from a school friend back in 94/5. I built it up with XT parts, and Hope hubs with Campag Stheno rims. A lot of purple bits found their way on from my old DB Topanga too. I loved it. I didn't know that it was 6 years old, but it did have quite a few patches...

    Titanium seatpost, 27.0, some layback

    0.2mm is it a big difference?

    I bought a seatpost advertised as a 27.0, but when I dropped it into the frame, I thought it was a little small. I've had the calipers on it, and it's 26.8mm. I can get the frame to bind on it, but... ... how wise is it to run it? Or should I offer it back up for sale, and continue my grael...
