    Bought a new bottom bracket for my 2002 Kona Kula. Fitted it and it's making creaking noises. Brand new, it's was around £15 posted so not that expensive but it should at least work. Mines a funny size being ISIS 68x113. Does anyone recommend a decent bottom bracket? Original one was FSA...

    Your favourite album of the year so far.

    Has to be an album that has been released this year. Eminem Music To Be Murdered By for me. Shady is back, none of that shouty whining angry noise he's been making in his last couple of albums. Having been a fan since The Slim Shady LP.

    1993 Raleigh Peak touch up paint.

    Back in the 90's when I had my first Raleigh Peak it came with touch up paint. I'm guessing that there is nobody that can get it now? Otherwise thinking about going to local paint shop and seeing what they can match up.
