Thanks! I'm enjoying it so far!
Small update today, swapped out the Avid Speed Dial Ti levers for some Litepro Ultimates, modern V-brake levers but they look pretty retro, i think they suit the bike better than the Avids, and seem to work just as well although I think the Avids have a nicer feeling lever.
Took the bike out for a 19 miler today and it didn't miss a beat
Took the Manomano out for a short ride this morning, theres been a few upgrades recently; including swapping out the Z3 Light forks for some Z1's, a shorter DDG stem, some Azonic O'Neal riser bars, and I've reinstated the original cranks with a 34T chainring...
I think I'll try the chainring on the middle position instead though as it did drop the chain when at the top of the cassette, previous chainring was a 32T narrow wide and I had no problems with that, these cranks take a 94Bcd 5-arm ring though so a narrow wide ring would be trickier to find i think.
I'll see how it goes....
Always used to run the chainring in the middle position, definitely helps. Shortening the chain also helps stop bounce, though i see you have a dcd fitted. If it is still an issue for you, you can run a Roox chain dog type device, a lot of people used to run a front mech (not cabbled up) as a cheap alternative
