Thanks for that, I was half kidding. I am going to leave this one as is, I would only consider a suspension fork but I think the bar ends will let me move around enough to keep my hands happy for the amount I get to ride it.

As for the Hope's I was the rep for the Canadian distributor for Ontario/Atlantic for a number of years and that was my last Turner. No need for them anymore but they were awesome and modulated like no other brake I've ever had, downhilling on wet clay was the proof.

These mini's are my main ones now:loll

Yeah, lets just go with one.

The Rupert cycling community is pretty small, but we've got year round riding if you're hard enough.
The Ridlley is my dry bike, it wont seen the road til April. In the mean time I have my Norco all fendered up with training tires on it for winter (very wet) road training. I also have a cyclocross rig that gets me out with an another fella, we've set up a two hour "course" around town. Golf course, walking paths. Days are so short that it's mostly done at night with lights, it's a hoot.



Keeps us riding when the highways are dark and deadly.

Looks great, of course I would only be stopping in on my way to Terrace for some skiing

I'm wondering if I should just pull the wheels off and sell them ala carte. Then buy some cheapie wheelset at Performance to sell the bike?

I also put up my kids old Haro Group 1, a truly bulletproof bike....
Okay, price lowered by $100 to $450..... Let's see if this thing moves now. I'll give it a few days, then I'm pulling the King Wheels off and selling them ala carte.

I think it's just a tough winter to sell ANY bike.

Horrible weather just about everywhere.

I put my wife's MTB on the Denver CL 2 weeks ago and things are so slow I haven't even gotten a scam email yet!

I've had a serious case of the screw-its lately. If *I've* had a case of the screw-its, I can only imagine what the less hardy souls are feeling.

I had a 'screw it' moment on Sunday. But it was more like an inverted 'screw it'.

As in...It's gotten up to 40F and not pissing rain and I'm not on my way from or to an airport...screw it, that's riding weather. And I dumped the turbo trainer for my hybrid for the first outdoor ride since early December. Ahhh, I needed that!

I've actually been riding the exercise bike on this offshore oil rig, and I bought a trainer for my road bike. It felt sooo good riding half an hour to work each day on my fixie all fall in Taipei and I hate to lose it. Rekindled my motivation to ride…….

My new Occam finally arrive, what a pretty frame, exellent attention to detail and good design all over, still missing the Headset, rear brake adapter and hub for the front wheel, besides that is ready.


What else but a Mango king hub for the wheel, well now I just need to sell my front one (bearings to small for the diameter of the axle) so I can get a mango one that fits the Maverick 24mm axle.


A little pennytech goes a long way..

For the routing of the rear derailleur housing I need a "rollamajig", the problem with the one I have is that it was missing some very important parts (sphere and cup)

First I drill a bicycle banjo bolt using two drills since a small hole was already there.


Then used a grinder with a flapper wheel to round the hex sided head.


Finally used a dremmel to make the concave shape.


Now for the "ball" I try to drill into hardened steel bicycle ball bearing but obliviously that did not work to well so i went the "New Orleans" way with a cheap neckless, in lacks of a delrin/nylon sphere.


The finally result, works just like the original, zero shifting problems.

I had no choice with the routing on the cable on the chainstay, I will need a really long loop at the risk of getting trap with branches or upgrade to 10speeds and I just refuse to do that.

As far as I know they never made one, not even gold ones, beside the going rate on ebay for the aluminum ones is about $40 and I can not justified that kind of money, the plastic one works just fine..

Come on nine speed gear is super dependable, plentiful and cheaper to find, plus most of my bikes run 9 gears and will cost way to much to update so many bike to the newer standard, forget about 11 gears for me...
