    Lovely build there James, well done. 1x10 has a lot going for it.

    Rgver, that Gitane is a thing of beauty.

    by the way I think miles pedalled through the rain should count double, and miles on snow (! Hardcore!) triple.
  3. Changing batteries on cheap Chinese bar-end blinkies

    Hi chaps,

    I have a pair of the cheap Deal Extreme bar-end blinkies for road handlebars. The batteries are getting pretty low.

    Maiden voyage successfuly completed, 16 miles ending in a cold rainstorm. It rides very nicely indeed, the headset needs a little love, I enjoyed the DT shifters funnily enough.

    Maiden voyage today. So far the costs have been:

    cheap platform pedals €5

    Koga Miyatas are relatively easy to identify, the online catalogues are pretty comprehensive. Nice bikes, too!

    oh yeah, i quite agree.

    I will include some of the parts bin components in the 'back story' of my build anyway, if only to pad it out a bit!

    I'm not going to win anyway, my bike is going to be...

    Tom, I plan to flush with WD-40 and then lube with a cheap Triflow imitation spray. Normally works.

    i got the complete RSX groupset in timewarp condition for €59 which is much less than the...

    There's no 'limit' as such, just points off if you go over an arbitary figure of $150.

    I have yet to see whether you can accrue 'flip dollars' by selling the components of your donor bikes, but I...

    Wow. Who'd have thought the name of that popular Kona steel bike would trip the swear filter. I hope i never need to ride it to the grim Lincolnshire town of S****horpe!

    My Velo Cheapo looks like it's going to come in over budget, but as the donor bike is so good it seems a shame to re-component it in a half-arsed way. So it's getting the nice RSX groupset that was...

    I was just going to use my 10mm Allen key and hit it with a hammer until something turned. I'll report back.

    by the way, I am delighted with the frame! The bike has plenty of clearance for 622/28...

    I have a scrap 7-speed rear wheel coming back from Basel with me after this weekend, so it's time to start experimenting! The rim has a massive flat spot in it so it is officially going to be a parts...

    Bottom bearings were upside down on the race.

    It´s still not perfect, so next job post Basel is to try the top ones!

    Thanks for the tip, Scott. That video did look bloody complex.

    This review of the STX-RC hub looks promising, from wiggle.co.uk:

    Once again chaps, many thanks.

    Red wine is winning this evening, as far as my leisure time is concerned, but I will have a look at it next week when I get back from Basel.

    Having checked shyflirt1´s video on YouTube it looks a bit trickier than I thought! There´s a lots of cannibalizing of parts to make one UniHyperGlide body.

    I fear it may be beyond me!

    Thanks chaps.

    I checked Sheldon's site but, as so often, wasn't 100% sure.

    So are you of the opinion that a straight swap for a 7-speed Hyperglide cassette body is probably the way to go on...
  23. Shimano Uniglide cassette upgrades/options/questions!

    Evening all.

    My rear wheel has a 105 6-speed Uniglide cassette. I am thinking about upgrading to 7-speed. Yeah, I know, 11-speed has been out for years, but 7-speed 11/28 and a compact crank is...

    Bob, you´re absolutely right, but it´s my entry in the Classic and Vintage ´Velo Cheapo´ competition so I am trying to reuse and recycle wherever possible!

    Which leads me on the next problem....
  25. Thanks all.
