Re: Ti Stooge auction - respirator fundraiser

Enve forks are gone. It’s just the frame.

Re: Ti Stooge auction - respirator fundraiser

OK, the full story. I found a hairline crack in the chainstay/seatstay weld, so obviously I can’t sell a frame like that, no matter the good cause involved. I need to ship it back to Stooge, who’ll then ship to their frame builder for a professional repair. So it’s not going to be a quick fix, espec...

Re: Ti Stooge auction - respirator fundraiser

I’m going to have to put this on hold for a moment. I’ve found an issue with the frame so cannot pass it on until resolved.

44mm diameter, can’t remember the length but will find out when I pop out to my garage. The mk4 is listed as 150mm on the Stooge site.

Re: Ti Stooge auction - respirator fundraiser

It’s a mk1.5 29+ frame with the plate chainstay from December 2015. Satin finish. Designed to be used rigid, but others on the forum have run a bouncy fork with it. The Ti Stooge has a lot of bikepacking pedigree, mine has done the Cairngorms Loop, Capital Trail and a US trip. There are several othe...

Re: HT550 over 7 riding days

I’d personally miss out the bottom loop, and start and finish in Garve. There’s a train station there, and you can get the bottom two loops done without being too knackered for the best bit - the Bealach Horn.

Re: HT550 over 7 riding days

7 days will be challenging. I did it in 7 days and 4hrs in 2014 on the mass start, and that was with mainly good weather and a fair bit of training. The first few days are relatively easy - even right up to Ullapool. You can get to Ullapool in 4 days, but then the pace will slow down with the big cl...

Re: valve core blocked

Keep the valve at the top of the wheel so the sealant flows down to the bottom. It shouldn’t escape as a result. Give the valve core a clean, as there may be some sealant solidified that is causing the blockage.

Re: Suggest a 'Do almost Any reasonable Bearing' press/puller

Ah yes, hammers get such a bad press.... but are so useful. And whilst bashing in a bearing using the outer race is the ideal scenario, sometimes you are compelled to bash one in using the inner race. With care, this is not a problem.... I’ve used the old bearing to tap the new one in. However I’ve...

Re: Do you own an unsuitable bike?

I rode London to Newcastle on a folder, which was ace aside from road tyres on sketchy paths. Now I’m on a Brompton and it’s slightly more appropriate with wider tyres, but a pig to ride.

Does a singlespeed count if you’re talking about Wales?

Shotguns don't work very well against viruses (virii?) unless you've got very teeny weeny ammo, and viruses are probably what'll do for us long before the zombie killer apocalypse gets a chance...
