I’m after the last few bits for my Flyer
knackered 10 speed Campag shifters for stripping to brake levers.
robust free wheel in 18 or 16T Clickster or White Industries preferred
Zipp Service Course sl Stem 100mm?
Just beaten to it I’m afraid
Bontrager one came in for a while £10!
Got a set of black deep rim HPlus wheels on Halo flip flop hubs. Almost new, never seen a brake. Need to find and get them off the bike first. Cheers. T
Sounds promising as long as they are not too deep
Think it’s the SL42’s. Will check for you. Hope all well. T
May be to deep, will wait for photos
All is getting there, hope you had a good festive period matey
Edited as I should really be less fussy about the seat post....
I've a carbon Record seat post in 27.2mm size but it has issues. OK, the issues are that the original owner decided to cut it down so the length might not work for you. Let me know if you are interested and how short would be acceptable to you? See, size does matter in so many ways!!!!!
I Can measure on the 8th, but I think I need a 250 min.
I Have attached a photo of current sp for comical Internet estimate in the mean time
Nice picture but my post is nowhere near long enough if that is the set up you will be going with.
Thanks for asking though matey
Love to see some pics and have some details if Ecobeard passes
Deda super zero?
Got any photos at all?
It's brand new last years model. Black on black
Edit & Edit - Seat post found, apologies
Quella have got 40mm rimmed wheels on sale online inc flip-flop hubs. Just bought some they are not light but look great and are sturdy.
Not the ones for me, but thanks
Just shifters and freewheel left to find now
Picked up some Zipp track hubs for some lols Wheels....
I was looking to do the same with a set of Campy brifters that I had, but looking at the design it seemed that stripping out the gear lever and mechanism would leave the brake lever without any spring back. Is this the case, or I have I missed something? Perhaps you can rely solely on the brake caliper springs to give the levers enough pull..?
Are they 10 speed?
It should be the same on 8 & 9 speed, i think, but i’m Sure you can remove the entire gear mechanism in the shifter and leave a spring and carrier body in them for the levers.
Terry at Brixton cycles showed me how to do it, but to be honest I need to refresh myself when I find a pair to work on.
I’m sure there is a video on t’internet somewhere as well, i’ll See what I either remember or can find on line later.
Either way the levers never ‘dangled’ and I don’t think it was just to do with the pull on the calipers.
Yes they were 10 speed Centaur alu.
Cool, because the beautiful design of the levers would lend themselves nicely to SS - if you can get them to not dangle. I might have kept them had I known it was possible to convert nicely.
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.
