Re: Front Roll Bag Holder Thing.

I used 6mm on mine, I think the 4.5mm will be too floppy.

Re: help needed please

I am a wood worker and use pu glue a lot, its totally waterproof so steam wont do it , cellulose thinners might soften it a little but it's very strong stuff, good luck.

Re: Front Roll Bag Holder Thing.

Hello Ian
Its about 5mm thick and yes I have done at least 4000 miles with it in some very challenging conditions. I think it is safe to say its strong.

Re: Front Roll Bag Holder Thing.

I guess I could, I didn't put them on to sell just to show my solution. I would need to know how far from the centre of your steerer tube to the first bend, this depends on your stem length, also I would have to wait until I see my mate next to get the plastic so as long as your not in to much of a ...

Re: Front Roll Bag Holder Thing.

I think it would , as you could tune it with the right bend by letting all the air out the forks so you can compress them to full travel to see if it touches the tyre. You can take the forks apart to do a lower leg service and take out the plunger thing in the air side as air get past it sometimes t...

Front Roll Bag Holder Thing.

I made this about 18 months ago as my roll bag was squashing my hoses a bit too much for my liking. My friend makes water tanks out of this stuff and gave me a few off cuts, I just cut it on the bandsaw then drilled the necessary holes, to bend it you use a heat gun from both sides until it becomes ...

Re: Dual bottle cage mounts

I had one of the wolf tooth ones when I did the Dale's divide last year as it was a scorcher of a weekend but unfortunately as you drink one bottle the other then puts a load of force on the bolts in not a good way so over the weekend it ripped the mounts out of my steel frame , the inserts where br...

Re: Dam Busters.

Well thanks Stu and Dee ( I think) for the event I believe I choose possibly the worst route I could have which involved some lovely steep grassy/ slippy bridle way push ups with the strongest headwinds I have experienced, even to shut a five bar gate took both hands! It went on and on, I went past ...

Re: Does this bike / frame exist

I have a Broken Road albeit with carbon forks and 650b plus wheelset with 2.8 tyres and the clearance is big , when you get to that sticky mud it will fill any gap anyway.
I also have a custom build steel hardtail by my friend Chris Yeomans of Smithyframeworks he will make you anything you want.
