Back in the UK and thrown the 1x1 back together. Frame's honestly a bit small, but until I've lost ~10kg I'm not going to bother pissing around finding something else and dealing with all these new "standards". Lean, future me will then stick some moto bars and 26" dirt wizards on and just go thrash it around in the forest.
Dyno hub has seized up a bit after 3 years in the loft. Only powering 2 of the 4 LEDs. Gravelkings seem to steer a bit weird, but might be the long, high stem and/or knackered front wheel. Seems alright other than that.
Dad bike / tourer nearly there.
Need to sort out a brooks b17, can get one OEM price but want to avoid bum ouch.
Kiddo loves it
Looking for a price check please - £?
This wonderful surly has sat in my garage collecting dust and getting nowhere near the love it deserves due to an injury... I'm not entirely sure on price for surly's at the moment so if anyone knows a reasonable figure feel free to let me know! :)
Any questions just PM me.
Is probably worth more than you would actually sell it for. I’d split it, groupset, frame/fork, rack, wheels etc
If you do split, colour me interested in the death-rack please. (dibs)
Two Straggler framesets sold on here recently, one for £300 (black, 52cm), and one for (I think) £275 (purple, small ding on the top tube, 54cm).
What size is it?
Death-rack no more (almost)... https://surlybikes.com/blog/surly_8_and_24_pack_rack_update
There goes the discount
Ok too small for me
Fresh from the shop. Will I ever need a new bike after this?
If you do end up splitting i'd be keen on the frame, I'm also Bristol based
Have been changing bikes fairly regularly and somehow ended up with LHT Frameset and Pacer, which between them do more less everything I need them to.
LHT - in summer mode. Now has full VO guards and a Nice Rack
Just finished building the Pacer, wanted something quicker to get work on, surprised it managed to clear 32c Paselas underneath the PDWs
The wife’s mum bike / tourer
Will be the same spec as my disc trucker and our tandem. 3/9, mt200 hydros, 26x2 duremes, full guards, surly nice and thorn rear rack.
B17s gifted for Xmas!
Will be hope pro 2 Evo rear and Jtek dynamo front. May build it with some dirt cheap wheels to get it rolling and they are the most expensive thing along with racks - may nab the surly nice off the tandem and use lowriders on that but it can’t use a back rack so would limit luggage...
Brooks saddle on, proofhide for a week and the first ride was fine.
Same treatment for the wife when that’s built!
This has been a while in the oven. First ride today.
Interesting Pacer disc conversion on eBay at the moment (no affiliation/endorsement of seller)
I've a 1x11 drop bar cantilever cross check and considering converting to a flat bar dad bike. Minimum spend. And still keeping it geared.
Anyone understand what levers/shifter/derailleur combos work?
I'm getting confused what levers work with standard pull and fit i spec shifters.
Yeah go for it...
Assuming you're using shimano deraileurs, just get a band-on shifter like this
And these levers work with road-pull brakes.
Wrong pull ratio on that shifter no? It'd need to be a road shifter for 11 speed. I think there's an Ultegra flat bar shifter
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
