    boy"O"boy's 1991 Raleigh Dynatech Endeavour x2!!

    Cheers Steve. Pleased with how the paint has turned out. The paintstore in Leamington Spa custom matched the paint to the original in 400ml aerosols. The can says 'custom filled solvent based' on the label. In terms of what it actually is...I have no idea, but it dried much quicker (probably due...

    boy"O"boy's 1991 Raleigh Dynatech Odyssey

    Last of a few jobs completed to finish this one up. The Rockshox Mag 21 legs have now been switched to the right way round....thanks for the advice on this. Rear hub has had the Freewheel replaced. Much easier job that I thought! Slippage gone although the chainrings are worn so it's not quite...

    boy"O"boy's 1991 Raleigh Dynatech Endeavour x2!!

    Slow but sure.... Another weekend, another update for Endeavour #2! Tioga Avenger 1 1/8" headset goes in. Forks mounted. Going to have the option of a colour coded stem or flexstem in original neon yellow or grey. Thought I'd start the build with the rigid stem. Some of the Campagnolo...

    boy"O"boy's 1991 Raleigh Dynatech Endeavour x2!!

    Thanks Ibbz. Got everything (including crank caps that arrived today!) So it shouldn't be long before you see the finished article. The Reynolds 753 bars need a repaint though... Thanks pw. Glad you like the work so far... The BB tool is straight forward to use. The are marked Left and Right...

    Decal pics. Quality stuff from Gil_m The reproduction Reynolds 2070 tubing sticker with correct frame identification number is absolutely spot on! Cheers. boy"O"boy

    boy"O"boy's 1991 Raleigh Dynatech Endeavour x2!!

    Cheers Ibbz. This one has taken a bit more work than Endeavour #1 but it's been handy having the original as reference! Well worth the effort in restoring this one though. There's been a bit of a pause in progress recently but starting to pick up pace again. The frame has been clear coated...

    The unicorn bike paradox

    I'm with Sinnerman on this one. Image plays a massive role. It's what you desired, what you wanted, what you wanted to be seen riding. Same with the breakdown of what constitutes a unicorn.... 1. The rare and desirable. The ones that are known to exist but are rarely seen 2. The High cost /...

    Karma Panaracer Fire XC pro amberwalls 2.1 ~ KARMA'D AND GONE!

    Hi all. As title. Was going to bin these but thought I'd see if someone here wants them for gratis. One is useable, one has a split in the sidewall that could perhaps be patched to keep you rolling? Both are Kevlar folding amberwall- tread not too bad but definitely showing signs of use! I'll...

    Just to give Gtpulse his daily fix!! ..... Here is today's update... Campagnolo Centaur parts collection assembled! .....realised after I took the picture and the weather turned that I hadn't included the NOS Campagnolo Centaur seatpost....but as I've got to get a shim made for this and I'm...

    Cheers! Appreciate the following - I've also been updating progress on Instagram too. I see it like a tutorial really....I like to add the detail of how I achieved that result and to show you can do it yourself at home. Painting, wheel building, and assembly are things I've taught myself...

    Raleigh Dyna-Tech Voyager

    Looks great! Good starting point improved massively by the Vetta saddle. Slightly 'larger' saddle designs seem to work well on Dynatechs. Just bought a pair of Campagnolo crank caps for my Endeavour #2 build. If someone had told me a couple of years ago that I'd have to pay £25 for a...

    boy"O"boy's 1991 Raleigh Dynatech Endeavour x2!!

    Thanks to all that voted for Endeavour #1 in this month's bonded special. Going through Feb '91 MBUK today and found this ad with prices...looks like there was already a discounted price below RRP at Noahs Ark! ....and an issue with typo! 🤓

    boy"O"boy's 1991 Raleigh Dynatech Endeavour x2!!

    So. Time to get the wheels build up. An identical set to Endeavour #1....NOS Campagnolo Contax on Centaur hubs. Tyres are NOS Tioga Wonderdawgs. Slight pause in progress due to not being able to get the clearcoat done for a couple of weeks (not doing this part in the garden!) ....but chance...

    Congrats to ronezwun on the win 🏆 Thanks again to all that voted. Especially those who like the Endeavour! Another Bridesmaid entry for '21. Interestingly (or not depending on your take) when this appeared in a normal month - June 2020, it received exactly the same amount of votes! ....but...

    Cheers davo. I'll keep the updates coming! Cheers Ibbz. Here's a bit more progress.... Yep! - all done in the garden. I'm going to have the clearcoat done at work as the finish will be better. Here's where I'm at today. The pink Mica 💗 is now on. Was left to dry overnight and then the...
