Any particular reason why you weren't happy with them? I've got a couple of cheapy Deore versions which I'm planning to use for rear wheels, so I'd be interested in your experiences with the XTs.

See my comments above to tommmmmmm, there is nothing wrong with them, I'd recommend them. I just wanted sealed bearings

It needs the slight mismatch so you know it's a beater, otherwise it looks dangerously close to someone's Sunday best!

I like the silver stem and post, it matched the forks. Lovely build all in all

I hadn't thought of that, good point. I'd still need a 36h hole set. However if i've understood what Rik is saying, I may well have a world of options open to me now.

Surly obviously got these to work then.

You can use a QR for fixed. I wouldn't choose to though.

Have you seen the conversion I did for my tandem? Any 15mm through axle hub, chainline can be tweaked to suit, around £50 for the axle+spacers.

Was it just a case of getting a new axle and some spacers made up?

Yes, really simple, could just as easily have M10×1 extensions on the ends for track nuts but I think the M10×1.5 female threads in the axle with screws is neater. Spacers are retained by magnets assembly, 10mm each side gives a sprocket mounting face 40mm from centre, mine are 15mm NDS and 5mm DS to give a 46.5mm chainline and dishless wheel.

Probably but
As I just found out a silver 36h is near impossibru to get, even Paul didn't have any so
had to send a blank to anodising, it's ended up costing about £150 after import fees. Good job I payed £30 for the front.

I wanted a black as well, but they are out of stock. So i got the clear/silver one, 49t. When i ordered also 47t was available but now its out as well.
$88 + shipping was $103 total, I think it's not too bad price for good or at least special looking chainring. Also customs didnt catch it, so no extra fees.

Is there a nice looking silver front rack, similar to a Velo Orange one but not as expensive? For the girlfriends bike, needs to primarily look pretty, carry shit secondary use.
And not one that just attaches to centre pull brakes

That isn't bad but not too much lower in price really.
I'm probably looking more for just the pannier* rack type thing. Just a smallish over-the-wheel thing without crate/basket on top because I'll try and find an old wine box or something
Like:


*it won't actually have pannier bags though

Yep, just outside Bristol Dropouts. The rims are just some random touring ones i got cheap. Wide and sturdy which is just what i wanted.

They feel pretty solid, not totally unclip proof but if yours are NOS they'll be in a lot better condition than mine.
