Really looking forward to seeing your new bike Chris.

I'll have a look in my parts bin later for a lever. It's short pull right?

Yeah short pull will be fine ! It has one but it's one of those "dirty Harry" levers designed for a single finger & it's not working too well !
The new bike is awesome :-p

Hey guys! I am still alive! I've been swamped with work and weekends are all booked from now till August (weddings, stag dos, family events) so you wont be seeing me for a while. I will try and make it down on a Wednesday as soon as I get the time.

Just to say that I am missing you all and missing polo :( xxxxxxxx

PS I bent one of the adjustment screws for my front V brake arm, does anyone know where I can get a spare?

Ha how did the BigBMX break? If you cut it up into desk tidies keep one for me!

Yeah polo retreat was really fun, and the weather here is pretty good now, and I have an Allejandro frame on the way, which I can't ruddy wait for. Hope the Brighton tourney goes well, I'm gutted to be missing it, it was so fun last year.

It snapped at the top of the seat tube when Josh was hopping about ! I think those jump bike style frames aren't really meant to have the seat so high up ( especially Ally ones ) ! Yeah will make sure you get a desk tidy ( if/when it happens ) ! Ahh that's kool about your new frame ! Yeah the tourney is gonna be awesome & it's gonna be at falmer uni on those sweet courts ( did you play on it before you left ? )

Mine came from here - http://www.bikecare.co.uk/product_in...s_Page_5&id=89

A bit of googling turned up a few other results. Search for "dual pull brake lever" or "double barrel brake lever" and see what you can find.

The absolute cheapest way is to make your own. I'm sure anyone who has made one will be happy to show you how.

Ok, barriers for the courts are finally fully confirmed and paid for.

The only thing structurally left to do is to source some cheap (free) wood to skirt the bottom of the barriers. I was thinking that we could start ripping apart and building up a stock of pallet struts. Any other suggestions welcomed.

They're gutting the inside of the Gloucester club at the bottom of Gloucester Street. There's a skip outside, it had a lot of wood in it last I checked. Might be able to stash some at my work...
