Re: Wtd: 11 Speed rear mech

I may be talking aboslute bollocks, but i thought a Shimano 10spd rear mech has the same travel as an 11 spd and were interchangeable. Its the shifter that does the indexing.

But I may have dreamt it / made that up.

Re: FS: Basil portland front carrier

Cut it with a Dremel, smoothed the cuts off. Keyed the racked and sprayed it mat black.

Doesn't seem to chip off, bit you may need some touch-up on standby if you're worried.

Re: FS: Basil portland front carrier

Washers are in the plastic bag tied to the rack. I only placed it on for the photo but it's been fully tested in the field (and woods).

It's a bona fide Hoprocker Creation™. I very nearly hung on to it, but it just wouldn't look right on the new bike and it really suited the Ramin.

Re: Anyone else only eat once a day?

Me, my Dad and my daughter apparently have genetics that means we are always hungry! I have to actively stop myself earing continuously.

However my step-daughtet can firget ro eat all day.

I think I'd prefer that.

Re: Fattest 29er tyre for Ramin 3+ rear?

Glad to hear your having fun with the Ramin Shaf. I used a Bonty XR3 29x2.4 on it for a while with loads of clearance. Quite a narrow rim tho.

A mixture of chainsaw lube and white spirits. Just keep applying before each ride until all moving parts have a thick black protective coating.

Re: Pinnacle Ramin 3+ Large (yes actually!)

Not a lot of clearance! More than a fag paper but... On 45mm internal diameter rims. Works fine so long as you don't pump the tyres up too hard.

Front rack is a Basil Portland Front Carrier that I've cut down. It works really well using the lower fork bolt. I can still attached the fork cages.

Haha! Well I've got interest in the the front wheel already, and now the frame so a split is looking increasingly likely!

Although I remember having a right struggle finding a cheap way to send a frame before.

Clink - is your Stooge non-boost? Just wondering if you bought the frame from me you could swap wheels over as needed?

I'd like it to go to you if possible as you were after one for so long!

I'm, selling my large Planet X XLS (57cm large) to make space for a new bike. It is a great gravel bike and will even take a few bags if you want to go bikepacking. But on the flip side you can put some road tyres on and keep up on a road ride (I rode the London Ride 100 on it). It's light and respo...

Re: Taking a knife to a gunfight.

I bought a carbon cx bike on the cycle to work scheme about 7 years ago as I wanted to buy a road orientated bike that would also let me dash along the odd bridleway. Plus I couldn't face rim brakes. It's got limited tyre clearance so I'm stuck to 35mm rear and 40mm front which actually is a blessin...
