Absurdly cheap frames, bars, stems, seatposts etc branded Cube in the Bike-discount sale
Amazon selling DA7710 170mm cranks for a ridiculous £163 (affiliate deal)
Contacted the guy about this (thanks @amey for getting his email address).
He's after 2000$ + shipping.
Provenance is as follows:
I got it from the basement of a velodrome in Russia 3 months back. It has some paint chips, but it is in pretty great shape. Shipping shouldn't be an issue but might be a little extra.
£5 Kenda Small Block 8s at Halfords
A bit niche but St Christopher's Charity Shop in Beckenham Junction has a red digital camo-esque XL Void jersey in obviously used but fair condition (pulled thread on the rear) for £6.
Not a bargain, and not available in 56cm frame size. What bullshit.
Some bargains on CRC currently.
Picked up a pair of 29 Boost Wheels for £82.79 - RRP £309.99 using code 'EXTRA10'
Also the new Planet X Scandal is £150 - £100 off with code 'PREORDER100' shipping mid October.
Bikester 10% single use GYR5E7BDN3SA
Brown Brooks Imperial Narrow for £55.40
^ C15 cambiums cheaper than anywhere I can see also.
PZT-2 Parktool Pizza Cutter £9 in store at Evans St Pauls
Also Evans (nationwide) has an offer on Continental Inner Tubes.
Buy 5, pay for 4 - which in itself is not a great deal.
However, they have some in the sale at £2.49
So that's 5 tubes for £9.96 or £1.99 each
Fairly cheap Genesis day one 10 2018 at Cycle Republic.
£419 down from £700 (40% off) xs,s and m in stock. Ordered myself a small for commuting.
Pretty great for that money
Full bike! Great value.
Dropping and putting back the rear wheel out of that bike is a massive pita.
Disc brakes, track dropouts and full mudguard isn't the best combination.
Touch wood, I get about one puncture a year. The joys of living in the countryside.
With track ends you learn how to fix punctures without removing the wheel pretty quickly anyway, disc brakes n mud guards, or not.
Sounds like a bmx’er technique.
Huh? taking a wheel out of trackends takes seconds
Unless you mean when you forget a spanner to undo the track nuts
Just fit some of these so you can pop the mudguard out quickly.
Funny you guys are talking about this. I just finished a new commuter build (single speed pinnacle dolomite with an eccentric bottom bracket) and was just trying to figure out the best way to fix a rear flat.
Pretty much was going to do what you suggested with fix it whilst its still on. But would still like to be able to take the wheel out and fix what I need to on the side of the road if I ever needed to. Was trying to figure out a way to do all of this without messing with the EBB/Breaking the chain but I'm not too sure there is a simple/easy way to do so.
CBA to re tension the chain :(
