She was probably travelling 25mph+ downhill and was found in the middle ...

Re: No wonder we went metric.

IIRC from the documentry the mechanic responsible for this near tragedy had trudged his way across the yard to a dimly lit shed, shoved his hand in a box of bolts and thought 'aah they look the same'! :shock:
Look at the investigation.

Re: FS - Singular Swift with Alfine11 (punting sale of bike in need of love)

I have a Swift with an alfine 11 and its ace. When I had it 3x9 it had toured in France, been across Spain with Duncan and round the Cairngorms etc. Brilliant bike. I have a set of rigid forks if anyone is interested in them to go with the OP's bike https://bearbonesbikepacking.co.uk/phpBB3/viewtopi...
