There's a bit of play in the hub (similar to slack chain) which is where you need to be when shifting. Basically just requires you to not be stamping on the pedals or backpedalling at the time of shifting - sounds harder than it is...
Thanks @alialias and @T4NY4. I'm away off changing to this setup but if any questions crop up I'll fire them at you. Cheers.
My Pomp, excuse the bad pic, my good cameras keep dying on me
Here's mine w/ alman cicli cx fork in fixed gear configuration
Looks awesome with that fork. Crossing between Gangsta and Mash Works
I use the little sliding clip thing that would attach it to a brake bolt, fold the brake bolt bit flat then use a jubilee clip through/under that and round the brake bridge. Hope that makes sense!!
Edit: didn't realise how much of a dredge that was, referring to attaching aka mudguards on stupid downward facing brake bridge thing (like 3 pages back)
Could someone recomend some cranks with 52mm chainline that fits a pomp? 165mm preferably.
Outside ring on a SRAM Rival OCT (10spd) is about ~52mm I believe.
Maybe search spec sheets for double cranksets?
that's what i wanted it to be
How can you get a 52 mm chain line on a pomp?
i still very much like a raw v4 medium plz. ill just shout erry couple of pages to see if my words don't get lost
In 2 months you could have saved the 250 quid to buy a new one surely.
I wish you could by just the frame and not the fork
I wasn't 100% convinced on the pomp but it's growin on me
Cheap, fun and strong steel frame with gangsta(ish) geometry. What's not to like ? Go for it.
Looking dank with that fork. What size is that? makes me want one
This is mine. It is fun, jus larger tyres are a bit sluggish. But I'm gettin to like it.
@Ellis47 it's a small. Didn't realise how low they were but it works.
Ha sorry I still have a lot to catch up. Rad build. Looks like saddle nose is a pointing up though.
Yeh it is. broken saddle means slightly odd angle
135mm rear spacing and a On-one inbred dubble fixed hub. I bought it second hand, previous owner ran it ss and I didn´t realise that the chainline was off by aprox 10mm until I switched to fixed.
