    That Norwid bike is very well thought out indeed.

    i wonder, does anyone make a 650c or a 20" minivelo travel bike? It seems to me that the slightly-smaller road wheel size would mean it could use...

    I´d be putting 11-speed Shimano 105 on that in a heartbeat. Best of all worlds.

    This is the reason the nice Tiagra 10-speed STi are coming off my commuter, and the cheap Sora 8-speed are going back on. The little paddles are a bugger to 'flick' with lobster mitts on. The unloved...

    Looks like a Cinelli Frog to me. 26.0mm clamp diameter.

    Awesome job there. Triple points if you manged to save and reuse the chain, I reckon.

    All is well, the spacer was there, hidden on the DS ´under´ the granny ring. Phew. We´re good to go!

    Ah. What does this spacer look like? I fear I might have lost it, or not received it.... Bugger!

    The frame is standard BSA 68mm.
