Well it happened...
I fell off my bike last night.
I haven't fallen off a bicycle since 1966...
I was riding up my street and as I slowed down for an intersection
the front wheel hit a substantial pot hole.
The bike (1953 BSA) catapulted me over the bars
onto the street. (Ass over Tea kettle)
I picked myself up out of the puddle I'd landed in and
brushed myself off.
The bike was behind me , upright but upside down.
A passing motorist asked if I was OK and I said
yes, just embarrassed....
I'm a little sore and my wrists hurt.
The bike is fine except the bars are spun and my
new bell is a bit mangled.

It sounds like the damage isn't too bad to bike or human frame. This happens to all of us. I don't like the embarrassment but I don't like the pain worse.

That two-tone look is great. If you found those in the 590 size please tell us your source.

+1. CR18s are available in 590, but I didn't know they also made Rhyno lite in that size.

Picked up a couple of shifters today at the Winter Canadian Vintage Bicycle Show in Brantford Ontario. Both seventies and one is NOS. $15 for the pair. The best one will likely go on the Robin Hood "Sports Model".

I did BB servicing for years without the lock ring spanner. The cup does want to move when you tap the lock ring with a punch and hammer, but eventually I got it right. The spanner does make it much easier.
I decided to give this a try on the 68 Sports, and it came apart quite easily. The previous owner must have gone through it, so I just repacked the grease and put it together. There's hope for this bike yet. The bottom bracket is definitely sorted. When I put the wheel back on and gave it a spin, there was still a clunking noise. I put a spare wheel on and no noise. Hopefully the hub on the spare wheel is good and I can get the shifting sorted too.

Those bolt on chainrings were pretty common. I have them on some of my (Belgian-) bikes too. Screws have square heads.

I went back to the scene yesterday to review the situation.
There's a big pot hole/sink hole in the curb lane that fills with water.
On the surface it just looks like a puddle.
I've been in contact with the city and my local councillor as this
street (my street) is a designated bike route.

On a positive note.
I found an old Bianchi in the trash yesterday.
Not for me but someone would like it.
Similar to this one but more beat up...

Potholes, grrr. My upset occurred on a motorcycle. A cager had done a right turn on red into my path, taking up both northbound lanes so I had to decide which way to aim to dodge him. I was at full brake and would have cleared his left rear corner but hit what I call a "pie crust," one of those soft-edged bowl-shaped depressions with the asphalt smooshed out like you see at urban bus stops, and I highsided.

Get back on the bike!

Not to worry.
The bike's been sorted out and back on the road, with me on top...
The only time I fell off my motorbike was pulling into a parking lot.
I hit a patch of gravel and the bike went down on it's side with
me underneath.
No damage, just embarrassing...

My Belgian bikes: a “The Gold Lion" tandem, a “Taxandria" and a - for now - unknown make.

The Taxandria has its name in the chainring, as seen below.



And some more bolt on chainrings...

1936 BSA Roadster, 3Speed (BSA) + Hub Brakes

Arrived today, my special tool to extract the end cap of BSA 3 Speed inside Brake Drum. Because of the Hub Brake the 3 speed end cap is situated inside the brake drum, too deeply to get an effective wrench purchase on it. BSA had a special tool to extract the end cap but these are probably rarer than Hens Teeth and if anyone has one they probably do not know what it is for. I want to overhaul the 3 Speed while I am restoring the bike so the only way to be able to dismantle the hub was to design my own tool and have it made by a machine shop. I produced a drawing and sent it for quotes and Oakhammer Engineering Ltd of Corby UK contacted me with a very reasonable cost and once I said go ahead made it in 24hrs. It arrived today and is a perfect fit, I will probably start on it tomorrow but here are some photos and my drawing which is free to use by anyone with BSA 3 Speed Hubs to overhaul. Incidentally instead of case hardening the flats they used EN24T which is a tougher steel and perfectly adequate for the amount of use this toll will endure:-


Design Drawing for Extractor Tool.



You can see the two flats on the BSA 3 Speed End Cap.




The tool fits onto the spindle mating with the flats on the end cap and the spindle nut locks it in place. Remember to keep slackening the hub bearings and the tool securing nut to provide space as the end cap is unscrewed.

I appreciate your drawings.
O.T.
I design sets for film and TV.
This set was all built without the aide of computers,
except the "bubble" lenses on the columns...
Pencils/paper and a good team of carpenters and painters.
There is, of course a set of technical drawings.
