    Not possible. The l-bracket has a thread on it as does the seat tube attachment. I've got a simple non-threaded l-bracket coming from SJS that'll hopefully sort it.

    I recently bought some BLB mudguards, the flat alloy ones, to out on my BLB Track thinking it'd be a straightforward job. My clearance was pretty tight so added a link into the chain but there's absoljtely Jo chance they'll fit with 23c tyres. To get enough clearance the wheel would have to be out the back of he dropouts.

    The bracket I've got is as in the instructions but any photos I've seen on the Internet have the mudguard much much closer to the seat tube than you could achieve with this setup.

    Any tips?

    Second tattoo. Done 6 days after the first.

    Posting here totally slipped my mind. Had this done on Thursday by TanyaDSM at AKA in Berlin. First tattoo. Looks awfully lonely though so the second will follow quickly once back home.

    Anyone have a Made by Knock Feldgrind and have any opinions on it? I'm after something fairly portable but more consistent than my Porlex mini.

    This has probably been asked already but anyone know any good artists in Berlin?

    i think the best option might be to get the bike as close to £1000 as possible to get the bike2work saving and then add the Shimano front wheel and lights of my choosing.

    Quick question about lighting. The two Dynamo optiona, Shimano and SON, are vastly different prices. Is the benefit entirely weight or is the SON hub better at power generation?

    After some recent trips to Berlin, I don't see the point in a commuting bike without Dynamo lights now.*

    *even though I have two exposure Joysticks.
