    Request for info about MTB frames to suit 1 1/4" steerer diameter forks?

    Early 90's Marin for road duties - weight question

    I've weighed it not very scientifically using the bathroom digital scales and weighing myself whilst holding the bike up and then subtracting my own weight. The bike weighs 10.4 kilos.

    Question about Bolts for Shimano XTR V Brakes (M951)

    Re: Thanks for all the suggestions and advice given. I've ordered the Shimano bolts on eBay that Once a Hero kindly linked to. Hopefully I won't get clobbered with import duty and a handling fee when they arrive in the UK from the US. Richard

    Question about Bolts for Shimano XTR V Brakes (M951)

    Hello All I'm sure most people know that the securing bolts for Shimano XTR V brakes (M951 etc.) are almost impossible to find if you don't already have them. You can't use regular 6mm Allen bolts as the heads of these bolts are too big to give clearance to the cam and rod mechanism on the V...
