As Fatty Chrimbo never dropped off a new Pinarello on his way past my house (perhaps the sled's brakes didn't work) I'll have to continue rebuilding my old bike. As I mentioned earlier I intend to fit new 700c rims to replace the sprint rims. I've bought the rims and the existing spokes are a tad or two too long. I know I'll probably be browbeaten into buying new spokes, but being tight I wondered if it is worth cutting them down and re-threading them? Is it easy to do (72 stainless) or am I dreaming? And a Happy New Year to all my readers.
