    I can't remember how long the stockers are, but www.wiggle.co.uk usually have 500mm posts in just about every imagineable size.

    Did you braze bosses onto the stock fork? If so, which bosses did you use? I'll be doing that soon. But with the wide Rhyno Lite rims, and narrow fork, all of my bosses have too much offset.

    Any pix?

    the seat pin is 28.6mm diameter or 1 1/8"
    this is a common size on mountain bikes now.
    you can also get shims to use thinner seat pins.
    Ive got one that fits a 27.2mm seat post. so will fit it to one off my 20s

    also the Mark 1 Raleigh Burner BMX used the 28.6mm seat pins
    I got a nice fluted alloy Burner seat pin, NOS in the packet. At a car boot sale for 50pence

    Just to be clear. Is El Cheapo a brand name or are you salvaging the bosses from an inexpensive bike? Given some of the brand names out there, Poverty, Stolen, Mutiny, Alienation etc, one can never be sure.

    Please post pix when done.

    Sorry for the confusion....maybe I should have said, "Bodge bike from the Bodge shop"

    But seriously, bosses are from an inexpensive bike.

    I favour the bosses made by Crap O bike. They're really ****ty.



    Hey guess what you fellows - I just won a tatty R20 on Ebay. Got it for 15, but the owner hasn't replied to my emails. I'm wondering if he'd hoped to make more and doesn't want to play.

    I've really really got to get on top of mine. It's all stripped and ready for painting, but my attempts at wheelbuilding have so far been so discouraging that it's languishing a bit.

    thanks for the pic of the bike "folded". I could never figure out how it folded before, now I know - it don't fold - it breaks apart just like my Tote Cycle.

    You're mistaken - that pic is of the bike dismantled, but that's because he's removed the hinge pin. It does indeed fold, very much like a Dahon does.
