Nuthin' fancy - just a SR 26.8 seatpost for the latest Univega acquisition. Why does everybody cut their original seatposts so short???

Just got these as well.


Most likely going on the Ellis



I love the Paul components, however the Phil set has clinchers and a freewheel. I plan of making the Ellis a singlespeed with some brakes since it's already drilled.

You've properly prepared yourself for bleeding shins syndrome, correct?

I don't have any bike related tattoos, so figured I'd go the scarification route instead.

So that means you have other tattoos?

My stem arrived today. Hoping I can be less distracted and finish my build soon.

Today I received a "support washer" and a pawl spring so I can rebuild my SturmeyArcher S2C. The only place I could find them was SJ Cycles in the UK, reasonably priced and only 2pound50p to ship.

@colinm - would you consider starting your own thread on this rebuild? I love taking things like that apart, and am not even familiar with that hub. It would be a great learning opportunity. Thanks in advance.

Years ago I bought a suspension seatpost for my trusty old Fuji from Nashbar (or was it Performance - they were distinctly different companies back then) . The elastomer 'puck' that sits in the middle of the 'knee joint' finally crumbled to nothingness this past Spring. Of course that seatpost and replacement pucks are no longer sold. I 'temporarily' substituted an automotive sway bar rubber end link bushing (too soft).

Anyway, I found a source for polyurethane rod, 1" diameter and 12" long. I only need a 1" diameter section 1" long. The 'hardness' I'm trying is 95 durometer (hard).

Anyway, once I get it cut to size and installed, I should be good to go.

I'm so stoked to build them into wheels and ride them (with high-zoot tires!)


Of course, I'm fighting the hoarder's urge to buy extras at $40 each since they're the only 650B rims I know of with that ERD. Gonna try to wait and see how I like them on the bike, first...
