    Hi everyone, I've got some Crossmax XL 26s which I restickered and now want to find new spokes for - but of course the old serial number sticker is gone... Can anyone help me determine the model / year of these, or even better give me a serial number from a pair of their wheels that are the...

    Litespeed Sewanee restomod

    Picked up this frame a few months back and just got the last pieces of the puzzle. Rebuilt with 1x XT, some glorious Crossmaxs, and a pair of those NOS Bombers that popped up on Wiggle a while back. Tomorrow we'll find out whether that was time and money well spent 😬

    Hi guys, I picked up a Giant TCR a few days ago and am trying to figure out what year it is. Photos below, with key details by my reckoning being an integrated double seatpost clamp, seat tube at the clamp machined with 4 notches to hold a rubber weather-proofing sleeve, seat tube forming to...

    1998 GT Zaskar restomod

    This one won’t appeal to the purists but an old frame and some more modern parts is a hell of a combination. The original bike as I bought it is below. The frame was is good nick but most of the rest of it was knackered. The wheels were munted, the fork was rigid, drivetrain was on its last...

    Identifying Time pedals

    Hi everyone, I got some Time pedals on a bike I picked up today and I have no clue what they are, and can’t find anything to help me ID them. They have ‘carbon’ on the front side, but no model number etc I can see. Does anyone know what these are? Stephen

    Avid Arch Rival disassembly

    Does anyone know if you can / how you disassemble Avid Arch Rivals where they bolt to the frame? It looks like this may be able to be unscrewed for servicing - the black part at the back of it seems to be screwed into the black bit at the front to contain the spring and pivots etc - but for the...

    Help request - IDing a Klein frame

    I just bought a Klein frame which the seller said is around 1994 vintage. Photos below. The paint looks nasty in these shots - looks like it’s on the BB shell too? - but the seller says “It all looks original. I suspect it has a very subtle fade or mottle effect from factory. When wet you...

    Angleset in a ‘99 Zaskar

    I’ve just picked up a 1999 Zaskar and am looking at dropping in an angle adjust headset to slacken the front out a bit from the stock 70.5 degrees. My go-to mechanic is a little cautious as that’ll increase the forces on the frame, and he’s worried it could crack it at the head tube. Has anyone...
