Hi all. I've been trying get hold of Caren/Hartley Cycles for the past couple of weeks. Emails and (one) call unanswered. Can anyone shed any light on this?
She's at PBP I think?
See up thread a few posts....
They were away and have not managed to put an out of office on for email or phone. Hopefully they'll be back fairly soon!
Edit: they will be back 2nd September.
I had the same problem with the same chainset. Had to put a spacer in.
Isen are going to crimp the chainstay. I think it would have been tight even with a spacer.
Karen (sic) Hartley, fondatrice de ISEN, laisse parler son âme et son passé de joaillière.
Saw that Isen Rando bike on Instagram - is this going to be a new model? Would be keen
I think that at least the all season is getting the option of S&S and that the rando was the all season with maybe slight tweaks of geometry
From the instagram it looks like the elves at Isen Workshop have been knocking up some titanium frames!
Oak -ay my bike needs bottom bracket shell surgery. Brixton cycles told me to go check Isen .... Just spent about 30 minutes with them and they were absolutely lovely ..... we went through everything and they will be doing the honours this autumn. Now then where is that oyster card ....
Peace and love Tim
It's still on the forum though, made a few appearances at outlier hills.
What size seat post clamp do I need for gen 1 all season?
You need a very thin one though, as the sea tube is so thin. I’ve used a PRO one and then a tester approved bbb one when the other cracked due to over-enthusiasm.
What do you mean by thin? I've been using a very chunky Hope one for a year with no problems.
Sorry should have made that clearer. The lip that is on the top of the clamp, to prevent it sliding down the seat tube, needs to be thin. I initially tried to use an M part one and another I had lying around and the thickness of the lip at the top meant that it would begin to clamp the seatpost before it had fully bound the seattube leading to the post slipping down.
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.
