    If I were you I'd measure the chain for stretch first. If it's not showing much wear then generally speaking the cassette and front chainrings will be okay and won't need changing. You can get new unused XT 9 speed derailleurs on here and on eBay etc which would be more cost effective. Hope...

    Took your advice and fitted this lovely 9 speed wide range 11-42 cassette on the weekend. Gear change is really smooth but it's a bit loose gripping the teeth on the free hub, price you pay I suppose. Only other issue is I can't change in to top two gears as the derailleur is catching so need...

    Picked this bottom bracket up from one of the members on here this week (cheers Scant). Had to take an unscheduled tea break when I got home from work earlier to fit it but well worth it. There was nothing wrong with the Shimano one I had on there but when I saw this it matched the theme I'm...

    Now the awful weather has finally passed I managed to get out on her finally today, albeit with the family on their bikes and the dog. Still felt really nice, the 1x is taking some getting used to and had to remove the cassette and freehub when I got back as seemed a bit sticky, all good now...

    As you can see I'm a massive fan of baby blue (ish)

    Made a start on the build yesterday. Bike has been in the airing cupboard for 3 days for the top coat to harden and I just couldn't wait any longer. Gone for the Fox 32 Talas, some wide race Face bars and a Kore short stem. Rest of the build will be a 1x initially with Shimano XT, some...

    Well to be fair, this has turned out way beyond where I thought it would have on Saturday. Final head tube decal arrived today (courtesy of dnfive.co.uk) so on went the top coat. Three light layers to start with followed by two top heavy layers. Hardest thing is waiting 5 days now to...

    2007 Orange Clockwork Reissue No19 !

    Someone has butchered an R8 by putting an electric motor on it and sticking it on eBay. In desperate need of rescue I'd say!!! Some people don't know the value of what they have obviously...

    Very grateful for your suggestion, what a difference these pads made. Managed to get over to Halfords this morning and get some super fine pads for £4, best money I've spent so far. Managed to get all the powdery paint off and after a bit of research found I need to spray from much closer for...
